Do you know where to look to find golf cart repair near you? We can help with an Interactive Map to find all listed golf cart repair shops and cart customizations in your vicinity. We can also offer a step-by-step guide on what to look for in a golf cart repair shop. Turn your location services on and select shops from the map below.
When you click on the location marker of a golf cart repair shop near your home, you will get details on the repair shop or dealership, such as an address, phone number, and hours. Use “View Larger Map” and you will get even more details like reviews and directions. They may even offer a mobile golf cart repair service and save you the trip.
A Golf course is a great place to look for golf cart repair and maintenance services. Many golf courses offer repair services, as well as customizations and upgrades to your golf cart. They can also provide advice on how to maintain all models of carts and keep them running smoothly. Additionally, many golf courses have staff members who specialize in golf cart repair needs and maintenance services, so they can help you with any issues you may have. With their expertise and experience, they can ensure that your golf cart is running at its best.
Sad, but true…usually nobody leaves a review for a repair business for excellent service, just if they have a complaint. So, when you see a positive review from a local golf car owner, they probably have had an above-average positive experience with the business.
Two places that you can view customer reviews are on the Google Search results and the company business website (provided they have one). Golf cart dealerships are more likely to budget for a website, but they are not likely to post negative comments.
Take the reviews on the website with a grain of salt. Your best bet is to talk to some of the local golf cart owners about their experiences with your selected repair shop. Be sure and ask them about prices, value, service, and if the work was performed in a timely manner.
Use the “Contact Us” on the site to ask any questions you may have before trusting them with your golf carts. If the contact is an email address or online form, to save time you may need to get in the car and burn some gas to visit them in person.
If your prospective repair shop has a website, check BBB (Better Business Bureau) for years of experience and other awards of excellence for quality service. If you visit the shop in person, look around and see what citations, awards, or certifications they have. Is the shop in pristine condition? Working on golf carts isn’t rocket science, but having a trade school certification for the service technicians goes a long way in convincing me that they know what they are doing.
Expert golf cart repair shops will be able to service just about any cart you can bring in, but how you are treated is what will bring you back again and again. A friendly atmosphere, coupled with a willingness to explain maintenance procedures and services provided on-site.
Attention to detail and willingness to work with your schedule are marks of a professional, well-organized team. Did they do what you wanted them to do? Did they stick to the price that they quoted you? All of these questions are tied up in the repair shops’ ability to communicate with the customer.
The most often heard complaint from the golf cart owner about a golf cart repair shop is “they didn’t tell me how much it was going to end up costing”, or “it cost way more than I was quoted because they FOUND something”. All in all, your experience with the “affordable golf cart repair shop” is going to be the cost of materials, plus the mechanic’s time charged, plus fast turnaround services.
Your selected golf cart repair shop should communicate to you any changes in the original quote before the work is done or completed. The price of components they use will probably not change but the addition of unexpected faulty parts can send you way over your budget if you’re not expecting it.
In many cases, the decision on whether to even pursue repairing the cart or trading it in is made after discovering how much it’s going to cost to fix the problem. Service repair costs can add up quickly and will make swapping for that newer E Z Go or Club Car very attractive.
Range Of Available Services
Your local Golf cart dealer can sometimes offer a wide range of services, from sales and repairs to customization and maintenance. Utility vehicles are available in a variety of sizes and styles, so you can find the perfect one for your needs. Whether you’re looking for a utility cart to transport goods or a golf cart for recreational use, there’s something out there for everyone. Repairs and maintenance are also available at most dealerships, ensuring that your vehicle is always running smoothly. Customization options are also available, allowing you to make your vehicle unique and tailored to your specific needs. With such a wide range of services offered by golf cart dealers, you can be sure that you’ll find the perfect utility vehicle for your needs.
Although many of these repairs, adjustments, and upgrade services can be done by the individual golf cart owner, your shop should be able to perform any of the following on all models of golf carts:

In addition to repair services for golf carts, your repair site will probably offer new and used golf carts for sale should you decide to trade in your current vehicle.
Remember that buying used doesn’t mean settling for less. Each cart sold should be a certified pre-owned cart that comes with a full cart service warranty. Each pre-owned cart will have been detailed and, best of all, should come with a warranty of either 6 months or 1 year. Electric golf cars will have a 1-year battery warranty.
How Much Does It Cost To Fix A Golf Cart?
The cost to fix your golf cart depends on the part that wears out or breaks, the age of your cart, and whether you plan to hire a repair shop to fix it or just tackle the job yourself at home. For example, it would usually be cheaper to fix electric golf cart problems than a gasoline golf cart type.
With an average of up to $70 per hour for golf cart service, you add the cost of the parts to the difficulty of the repairs and it will add up quickly. Of course, an engine rebuild will take much more time than tracing out a loose wire.
Alternatives To Repairs
Used golf carts sell on an average between $2,000 and $5,000, which is a huge discount over the $4,000 to $10,000 for a new model. Replacing the batteries in your electric golf cart will set you back an estimated 800 to $2,000, or the low end of a used cart. Here are some examples…
- Batteries for electric carts: $800-$2000+
- Speed controller for electric golf carts: $400-$900
- Forward/Reverse switch: $100-$200
- Solenoid: $25-$110
- Shocks: $300-$600
- Clutch: for gas golf carts $500-$1200
As you can see, an electric golf cart that has 5 to 7-year-old batteries is due to cost you a hefty sum to bring it back to peak health. It might be worth it to trade in for a new golf cart.
Using A Golf Cart Repair Shop For Yearly Maintenance.
Whether you have an electric golf cart or a gas-powered golf cart, there is going to be a maintenance cost to keep it running. There is no exact number, but a good rule of thumb is that your maintenance can cost anywhere from $450 to $2,000 a year.
If you use a repair shop to perform your yearly maintenance, this cost will vary with how often you have your car checked and what make and model cart you own. It’s a fact that some manufacturers’ parts are easier to find than others.
If you plan on keeping your golf cart for many years, you’re going to need to develop a relationship with your local repair shop today. Build a good communication relationship with them from the very start and you will benefit from having a well-maintained golf cart and no golf cart issue to cause a sudden hit to the pocketbook. Routine maintenance is just as important to gas-powered golf carts as it is to gas-powered cars.
