Why buy used?
Kenfield Golf Cars has been buying used golf carts for over 30 years and we would like to inform you on the advantages of buying used over new.
What you should look for when buying a used golf cart:
- Batteries are a key component when buying a used golf cart. Buying a used golf cart with old batteries is like playing a guessing game on whether or not the previous owner took care of the batteries. When purchasing a cart from us, you will be assured we have done tests to check the condition of the batteries.
- Check the serial number to assure the person selling the golf cart is honest about the year and make of the golf cart. If for some reason there is not a legitimate serial number then you can assume the cart has been either stolen, found at the bottom of the creek, or seller is falsely representing the cart year.
- Pay less now, PAY MORE LATER. This is why we highly recommend buying a used golf cart from an established "authorized golf cart dealer." Golf Cart manufacturer's demand highly of their dealers and for this reason we can repair and service any golf cart make. If a golf cart seems too cheap, then it probably has a history behind it.
- Same as a new car, a new golf cart depreciates as soon as it leaves the lot. This is why we encourage buying used. Our carts are priced with a very slim profit margin which allows the customer to resale their used cart purchase for close to what they initially paid for it. In most cases, you can purchase a two- year old used golf cart for half the cost of a new one.
- We, at Kenfield Golf Cars purchase most of our fleets from golf courses in northern states. This assures us the carts would have been used half of the year. Most northern states have heavy snow which limits usage to 6 months. We also purchase carts from private courses that take pride in the appearance and functionality of their golf carts. This routine maintenance assures we are buying a product that has been cared after, unlike many dealers who purchase carts for price and not reliability. Carts that are near the coast are often a sign of trouble. Make sure you inspect the carts frame to assure it is rust free.
