Commercial and Recreational Golf Cart Prices from BuyerZone Buyers
BuyerZone regularly surveys its users to learn about their buying experience. We've compiled select responses to detail how much businesses and consumers paid for golf cart.
Businesses that rely on golf carts or utility vehicles will typically choose heavy-duty vehicles that can handle more intense jobs for longer periods of time. While golf carts are useful to provide transportation on a lengthy golf course or inside a factory, commercial utility vehicles are best to carry personnel from one site to another or to haul hefty loads on manufacturing sites, sports complexes, universities, and farms.
A typical golf cart for recreational use should hold two to four people, their golf gear, and a cooler. If you're looking to drive around a gated community or quiet neighborhood where local laws permit them, utility vehicles are an affordable means of light transportation. You can also add safety features to a golf cart to make it street-legal. Because of the high price tag for new golf carts and utility vehicles, recreational users will typically seek out refurbished golf carts which cost several thousand dollars less.
While vehicle upkeep is important for both uses, commercial businesses may want to consider a maintenance contract to make sure breakdowns don't impact their operations.
