Customer Reviews

 Sad, but true…usually nobody leaves a review for a repair business unless 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 the negative comments. 

Take the reviews on the web site 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, and service. 

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.

Accreditation

If your prospective repair shop has a website, check for BBB (Better Business Bureau)Opens in a new tab. and other awards of excellence for service. If you visit the shop in person, look around and see what citations, awards, or certifications they have. Working on golf carts isn’t rocket science, but having a trade school certification goes a long way in convincing me that they know what they are doing.

Customer Service

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.

Communication

The most often heard complaint 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 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.

Inventory

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.

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.

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 golf carts: $800-$2000+
  • Speed controller for electric golf carts: $400-$900
  • Forward/Reverse switch: $100-$200
  • Solenoid: $25-$110
  • Shocks: $300-$600
  • Clutch: $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. 

Conclusion

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 sudden hits to the pocketbook.
