Whether you’re looking to cruise your neighborhood, elevate your golf game, or streamline your business operations, a golf cart is an invaluable asset. But, before you jump into the driver’s seat, let’s explore a crucial aspect – financing. 

Why Choose Financing for Your Golf Cart? 

Financing your golf cart is a savvy decision for several reasons. It enables you to spread the cost of your investment over time, making it budget friendly. This means you can buy the cart of your dreams without depleting your savings. Here’s your roadmap to understanding the ins and outs of financing your golf cart: 

  1. Navigating Financing Options

When it comes to financing your golf cart, you have several options at your disposal: 

National Carts Recommended Financing Partners: This choice allows you to conveniently arrange financing and make your cart purchase in one place with the help of our sales teams. 

Personal Loan: Banks and credit unions offer personal loans tailored to help you secure your golf cart. This route offers the flexibility to choose where to shop for your cart. 

Credit Card: For smaller purchases, credit cards can provide a quick and convenient financing solution. Just be mindful of potentially high-interest rates if you can’t clear the balance promptly. 

  1. Deciphering Interest Rates and Terms

Interest rates for golf cart financing can vary widely based on factors like your credit score, the chosen lender, and the financing option you select. A stellar credit score usually leads to lower interest rates. Loan terms typically span from 24 to 72 months. Shorter terms might entail higher monthly payments but often result in lower overall interest costs. 

  1. The Down Payment

Most financing avenues will require an initial down payment. This upfront contribution serves to reduce both the loan amount and monthly payments. While the precise figure can fluctuate, it’s commonly around 10-20% of the golf cart’s purchase price. Offering a more substantial down payment can potentially secure you a better interest rate. 

  1. Credit Score

Your credit score plays a pivotal role in shaping your financing options and interest rates. A higher credit score often translates to more favorable terms. Before embarking on your financing journey, scrutinize your credit report for inaccuracies and consider strategies to enhance your score if necessary. 

  1. Seek Guidance from the Experts

If you’re still navigating the maze of golf cart financing, don’t hesitate to reach out to our expert sales teams in Longwood, FL, and Jacksonville, FL. They’re equipped with the knowledge and experience to guide you through the financing process.

Title: Keep Your Golf Cart Gleaming: Essential Cleaning Tips for Optimal Maintenance

Owning a golf cart brings a world of convenience and fun to your recreational activities. Whether you use it for golfing, cruising your neighborhood, or exploring your favorite vacation spot, it’s essential to keep it in tip-top shape. Regular cleaning not only maintains its aesthetic appeal but also prolongs its lifespan. Here are some crucial tips to ensure your golf cart stays sparkling and well-maintained: 

  1. Clear Out Loose Items: Start by removing any extra equipment or loose items from your cart that could be damaged by water. This includes golf clubs, personal belongings, or any loose accessories you might have onboard.
  2. Sweep and Clean the Floor: Take out the floor mats and sweep the floorboard thoroughly. Alternatively, you can use a shop vacuum to get rid of dirt and debris. For stubborn stains, use a mixture of mild soap and water to clean the floorboards. A clean floor ensures a comfortable and inviting ride.
  3. Care for the Seats: If your cart has removable seat covers, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for washing and drying them. For vinyl seats, use a damp cloth with a mild, soapy solution to clean the seats. Regular seat maintenance not only keeps them looking good but also extends their lifespan.
  4. Tend to the Interior: Pay attention to the smaller details. Use the same mild, soapy solution to wipe down the steering wheel, dashboard, and any other interior plastic parts. This ensures your golf cart’s interior remains clean and pleasant.
  5. Clean the Body with Care: When washing the body of your golf cart, opt for a soft sponge to avoid scratching the finish. Consider dividing the golf cart into sections to ensure that the soapy water doesn’t dry prematurely. This step ensures a thorough and streak-free cleaning.
  6. Add a Finishing Touch: Want your golf cart to shine like new? Consider using a spray wax for that extra polish. We recommend Turtle Wax and Dry for a lasting, glossy finish that protects your golf cart’s exterior.
  7. Dry with Microfiber Towels: After washing and waxing, use microfiber towels to dry your golf cart. Microfiber towels are gentle on the surface and effectively soak up water without leaving streaks or lint behind.
  8. Windshield Care: It’s important to note that not all cleaning products are suitable for your golf cart’s windshield. Never use Windex or paper towels, as they can damage the windshield. Instead, use a mild, soapy water solution and a microfiber towel to clean it effectively.
  9. Battery Maintenance: Don’t forget the less visible parts. To combat rust or corrosion around your batteries, use a bristle brush and a mixture of water and baking soda to clean the tops of your batteries. Remember to wear eye protection, gloves, and avoid wearing jewelry when performing this task.

By following these essential cleaning tips, you’ll not only keep your golf cart sparkling but also maintain its overall condition for years to come. If you have any questions about golf cart maintenance or need further assistance, feel free to call one of our service professionals at 800-940-8068.

Take pride in your golf cart, and it will continue to provide you with countless enjoyable rides. A well-maintained cart ensures that every journey is a pleasant and worry-free experience.

Ensuring Safety: Guidelines for Families with Children

When it comes to enjoying your golf cart with family, safety should always take the front seat. Here are crucial measures to keep everyone secure on your ride:

  1. Buckle Up for Safety: Just like in a car, seatbelts are necessary. Ensure all passengers, including children, are properly secured before starting your journey.
  2. Child Safety Seats: For kids under a certain age or size, opt for appropriate child safety seats. This prevents accidents and ensures their comfort. Please refer to your golf carts user manual.
  3. Age and Maturity: Gauge your child’s readiness. They should be old enough to understand and follow golf cart safety rules. Always supervise younger children.
  4. Slow and Steady: Keep a controlled speed. Sudden stops or turns can be dangerous, especially for young passengers.
  5. Mind the Vehicle’s Capacity: Never exceed the golf cart’s passenger limit. Overcrowding compromises stability and safety.
  6. Adult Supervision: Children should always be under adult supervision. They might not be able to anticipate dangers on their own.
  7. Street Smart: If using your golf cart on the streets, adhere to traffic rules and signals. Equip your cart with the necessary lights and signals for enhanced visibility.
  8. Clear Sightlines: Ensure a clear view while driving. Don’t let children obstruct your vision.
  9. Safe Loading and Unloading: Make sure children are seated before moving and fully disembarked before you start.
  10. Avoid Distracted Driving: Keep your attention on the road. Engaging with children while driving can lead to accidents.
  11. Be Weather Wise: Adjust your plans based on weather conditions. Rain or intense sun might require additional safety precautions.
  12. Education Matters: Educate your children about the do’s and don’ts of golf cart safety. Make them aware of potential risks.
  13. Emergency Essentials: Keep a first-aid kit handy, along with your cellphone, in case of any mishaps.

Prioritizing safety transforms your golf cart outings into enjoyable and secure family experiences. By following these guidelines, you create an environment where everyone can have a fun time with peace of mind.

Lead Acid Battery care for your electric golf cart

Owning an electric golf cart comes with the responsibility of proper battery care and maintenance to ensure its optimal performance. To help you maximize the lifespan of your batteries and keep your cart running smoothly, consider these essential maintenance tips:

Charging Your Batteries:

  • Regular Charging: After each use, charge your golf cart batteries for a full 8-10 hours overnight. This practice ensures your batteries are consistently topped up and ready for action.

Filling Your Batteries:

  • Use Distilled Water: Always use distilled water when filling your golf cart batteries. Avoid tap water or hose water, as impurities in these water sources can harm your batteries.
  • Maintain Proper Water Levels: When filling your batteries, keep the water level above the plates without overfilling. Aim for about ¼ inch to ½ inch above the plates. Overfilling can lead to acid overflow and potential damage.

Keeping the Batteries Clean:

  • Regular Cleaning: Routinely clean the top of your batteries using a bristle brush and a mixture of baking soda and water. This simple solution effectively removes dirt and corrosion.
  • Safety First: Wear protective gear like eye protection and gloves while cleaning. Avoid wearing jewelry that could accidentally contact the batteries.
  • Check Connectors and Vent Caps: Ensure that the battery connectors and vent caps are securely tightened. Loose connectors or caps can lead to electrical issues and potential acid leakage.
  • Anti-Corrosive Measures: Consider applying an anti-corrosive spray to the battery cables. This protective coating helps prevent corrosion and rust, extending the life of your cables.

Professional Evaluation:

Well-maintained lead-acid batteries can serve you well for up to 5 years. However, if you notice your golf cart running sluggishly or experiencing battery-related issues, it’s essential to seek professional assistance. Our dedicated parts and service professionals at National Carts are ready to help. You can reach them at 800-940-8068 to schedule an evaluation and battery test to identify and resolve any potential issues.

By following these battery care tips, you can significantly enhance the performance and longevity of your electric golf cart’s lead-acid batteries. For expert guidance and top-quality service, don’t hesitate to contact our team at National Carts. Your satisfaction and the reliability of your golf cart are our top priorities.

Lithium Battery for Golf Cars

Unlocking the Power of Lithium: A Golf Cart Revolution

Golf carts have transcended their traditional role on the greens and have become versatile vehicles used for personal transportation, resort travel, and even commercial purposes. This evolution has been marked by significant advancements, one of the most impactful being the transition from conventional lead-acid batteries to cutting-edge lithium batteries for golf carts.

The Era of Lead-Acid Batteries

Traditionally, electric golf carts relied on lead-acid batteries for their power needs. While these batteries had their merits, they also came with their fair share of challenges. They were readily available and relatively affordable, making them a popular choice. However, maintaining lead-acid batteries proved to be a continuous task.

Lead-acid batteries require periodic watering, careful monitoring of charge levels, and frequent replacements. These tasks not only consumed time but also added to the overall cost of ownership. Golf cart owners found themselves dealing with the hassle of maintenance, leaving much to be desired in terms of convenience.

The Lithium Battery Revolution

In recent years, lithium batteries have emerged as game-changers in the golf cart industry. These innovative power sources have addressed many of the drawbacks associated with lead-acid batteries, offering advantages that enhance the golf cart ownership experience.

1. Lighter and More Compact

Lithium batteries are significantly lighter and more compact than their lead-acid counterparts. This reduction in weight has led to notable improvements in golf cart handling and maneuverability. Lithium-powered carts are easier to control and navigate, making them more versatile and user-friendly.

2. Extended Driving Range

Perhaps one of the most significant advantages of lithium batteries is their ability to provide an extended driving range on a single charge. Golf cart enthusiasts can now venture farther without the constant worry of running out of power. This enhanced range opens new possibilities for exploration and adventure.

3. Rapid Charging

Lithium batteries charge faster than their lead-acid counterparts. Rapid charging capabilities mean that golf cart owners spend less time waiting for their carts to power up and more time enjoying their rides. Quick, convenient charging enhances the overall ownership experience.

4. Virtually Maintenance-Free

One of the most compelling reasons to choose lithium batteries is their virtual maintenance-free nature. Unlike lead-acid batteries that required constant watering, lithium batteries demand minimal upkeep. This translates to reduced downtime and fewer costs associated with maintenance, making ownership hassle-free.

5. Longer Lifespan

Lithium batteries have a significantly longer lifespan compared to traditional lead-acid batteries. With proper care and maintenance, they can endure several years of service, providing excellent long-term value for the investment.

National Carts: Pioneering the Future of Golf Carts

The transition from conventional lead-acid batteries to advanced lithium batteries marks a monumental leap in performance and convenience for golf cart owners. At National Carts, we take immense pride in offering cutting-edge golf carts powered by lithium batteries. Our commitment to excellence extends to providing expert guidance and exceptional service.

If you’re ready to experience the advantages of lithium-powered golf carts, look no further. National Carts is your trusted partner in embracing the future of golf cart performance. Contact us today to explore our range of high-tech golf carts and revolutionize your golf cart ownership experience.

Golf cart tire maintenance is often overlooked, but it’s a critical aspect of keeping your golf cart in top condition. Neglecting your tires can lead to reduced performance, a less comfortable ride, and even safety hazards. In this guide, we’ll walk you through essential tire maintenance tips to ensure your golf cart tires stay in optimal condition.

Maintain Proper Air Pressure

Maintaining the correct air pressure is paramount for the performance and longevity of your golf cart tires. Properly inflated tires offer several benefits:   

  • Optimum Handling: Well-inflated tires provide better traction and handling, making your golf cart easier to control. 
  • Smoother Ride: Properly inflated tires absorb shocks and bumps more effectively, leading to a more comfortable ride. 
  • Extended Lifespan: Tires at the correct pressure wear evenly, increasing their lifespan and saving you money in the long run 
  • Check Weekly: Make it a habit to check the tire pressure in each tire at least once a week. Use a tire pressure gauge to measure the PSI (pounds per square inch). 
  • Refer to the Manual: Consult your golf cart’s owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure. This information is usually found in the manual or on a placard located on the golf cart.

Avoid Under-Inflation

While some golf cart owners intentionally under-inflate their tires for added traction when driving off-road or on rough terrain, this practice can lead to premature tire wear. When you run your golf cart with low tire pressure, regularly inspect the tires for: 

  • Uneven Tire Wear: Check the treads and sidewalls for signs of uneven wear. Under-inflated tires often wear down unevenly. 

Watch for Over-Inflation

Over-inflated tires can be just as problematic as under-inflated ones. When your tires have excessive pressure, several issues may arise:   

  • Stiffer Ride: Over-inflated tires result in a rougher and less comfortable ride due to reduced shock absorption. 
  • Uneven Wear: The center of the tires wears down faster than the edges, leading to uneven tire wear. 
  • Reduced Traction: Insufficient tread contact with the ground can result in reduced traction, especially on slippery surfaces. 

Check for Wheel Alignment Issues

Wheel alignment plays a crucial role in tire wear and overall golf cart performance. Hitting curbs or potholes can easily knock the wheels out of alignment. Signs of wheel alignment issues include: 

  • Uneven Tire Wear:  If you notice uneven wear on your tires, it’s a strong indicator of alignment problems. 
  • Steering Problems: Misaligned wheels can cause your golf cart to pull to one side or experience difficulty steering. 
  • Handling Issues: Poor wheel alignment can lead to poor handling and reduced stability. 

If you suspect wheel alignment issues, it’s essential to address them promptly. Schedule an appointment with a reputable service facility like National Carts to diagnose and rectify the problem. Proper wheel alignment not only ensures even tire wear but also enhances the overall performance and safety of your golf cart. 

By following these tire maintenance practices, you’ll extend the lifespan of your golf cart tires and enjoy a safer, more comfortable ride. Trust the expertise of National Carts to provide professional tire services and address any tire-related concerns you may have. Proper tire care is an investment in the longevity and performance of your golf cart.

When buying a golf cart, the decision of selecting the power source can be difficult. It is about choosing what suits your needs best. Consider these factors to make the right decision for you:

Gas-Powered Carts

  • More Power: Ideal for off-road use or farming where extra strength is necessary.
  • No Charging Needed: Simply fill the tank and go without worrying about recharging.
  • Easy refueling using regular unleaded gasoline.
  • Experience a greater riding range.

Electric Carts

  • Quiet Operation: Enjoy a peaceful ride without the noise of an engine.
  • Smooth Starts: Electric carts offer smoother acceleration and deceleration.
  • Less Maintenance: With fewer moving parts, electric carts require less maintenance.
  • Suitable for Indoor Use: Electric carts are safe to use indoors, making them a great option for certain environments.

Consider your specific usage requirements and let them guide your decision. Seek advice from friends, and neighbors who own golf carts, and gather their insights. Finally, consult professionals at National Carts to receive expert input before making your final choice.

At National Carts, we are here to help you make an informed decision that aligns with your needs and preferences. Visit us today for exceptional service and guidance.

Cart Maintenance Tips in 2023

Regular maintenance is crucial for optimal performance and longevity of your golf cart. By following these cart maintenance tasks, you can prevent downtime and costly repairs.

Electric Carts with lead acid batteries:

  • Monthly, check the water level in your batteries to ensure they are properly filled.
  • Clean the battery terminals regularly to prevent corrosion and ensure a secure connection.
  • Verify the tightness of the terminals monthly to avoid any loose connections.

Gas Carts:

  • Check your oil levels monthly to maintain proper lubrication and prevent engine damage.


  • Monitor tire pressure monthly, adhering to the PSI guidelines provided in your owner’s manual. This promotes optimal handling and extends tire life.

Brakes and Rear Differential:

  • Every six months, inspect your brakes thoroughly. Clean them and adjust pads, drums, cables, and pedals as necessary to maintain optimal braking performance.
  • Similarly, examine the rear differential to ensure it is functioning correctly.

Reverse Buzzer:

  • Check the operation of your reverse buzzer every six months to ensure it is functioning correctly.

As Hurricane Season peaks in Florida, it is important to be prepared and ensure the safety of your golf cart.

Here are some helpful suggestions to consider in the event of a large storm or hurricane:

  • Battery Care– Check the water level in your batteries and ensure your cart is fully charged. This will help your cart be ready for use during and after the storm.
  • Gas Golf Carts– For gas-powered carts, fill up your tank and consider keeping a backup tank handy. Additionally, check the oil levels in your gas cart for optimal performance.
  • Clean Your Cart– Prior to the storm, make sure your cart is cleaned out, removing any loose items that could become projectiles during high winds.
  • Tire Maintenance– Check the air pressure in all your tires and ensure they are properly inflated. This will enhance your cart’s stability and performance.
  • Document Important Information– Take pictures of your cart, as well as any relevant documents like purchase receipts and insurance information. These can be useful for insurance purposes if any damage occurs.
  • Safe Parking– If possible, park your cart in a garage for maximum protection. If a garage is unavailable, park close to a building to provide partial shelter. Never park your cart under a tree, as falling branches can cause severe damage.
  • Caution and Safety– While your golf cart can be a helpful means of transportation after a storm, exercise caution and prioritize safety. Be mindful of fallen debris on roadways and practice safe driving habits.

To all our friends in potentially affected areas, we send our best wishes for your safety during hurricane season. Stay vigilant and follow local authorities’ guidelines to ensure the well-being of yourself and your community.

Golf carts aren’t just for the golf course! Wedding golf cart rentals are a popular form of wedding transportation here in Central Florida. Whitney from National Carts shares why adding golf carts to your wedding can help the wedding flow in so many ways.

It’s your wedding day. It’s the happiest day of your life and you’ve planned for absolutely everything.

You have gone over your seating chart for the millionth time and warned your day-of coordinator about your sassy Aunt Karla who gets a little “loud” when she’s had one too many drinks.

You sent your timeline to your bridesmaids and gave Stacey an altered copy that says she has to be at the hotel a whole hour earlier than she needs to be because Stacey is always the last to arrive — and ALWAYS arrives late.

But what you didn’t plan for is the how long the walk would be from the parking lot to the wedding space and how Grandpa’s trick knee is about to pull a fast one on him.

More than ever, couples are choosing creative outdoor spaces for their wedding venues. In a 2017 article for The Knot Pro, Anja Winnika explains that the percentage of brides that require a “scenic backdrop/locale had gone up from 44% to 48%.” She goes on to say that another priority of brides was an indoor/outdoor venue space.

Winnika writes, “Stylistically, semi-casual weddings are still growing in popularity and especially black-tie weddings are down.”

These creative indoor/outdoor spaces sometimes need creative transportation solutions.

Below are five fun and useful ways to incorporate golf carts into your wedding.

1. Transportation to and from a wedding space.

Scenic outdoor wedding spaces, such as barns or museum landscapes, add a beautiful backdrop to any ceremony. Although ideal for photos, these spaces can sometimes lead to long walks to and from the ceremony space for the happy couple, the bridal party, and your wedding guests. Save your guests’ dancing feet by incorporating a golf cart into your logistical plan.

2. Rain, rain go away…

… unless it’s summer in Florida, then it’s here to stay.

As WESH 2 News explains, “the wet season in Central Florida lasts an average of five months. It generally begins in late May and runs through mid-October. 61% of our total annual rainfall is received during these five months.”

Depending on the distance from the parking lot to your event space, you could be setting your guests up for a soggy, soppy celebration during these summer months.

National Carts’ six-passenger golf carts come equipped with both windshields and roofs, keeping your guests dry when used to shuttle them to and from their car.

3. Get your furry friends down the aisle.

We’ve all been to that wedding where the bride and groom have enlisted their four-legged friends as the ring bearer and flower girl. We’ve also been to that same wedding where said ring bearer has no intention on delivering the ring and instead starts to wrap its leash around the wedding guests’ chairs, taking all the attention away from the bride and groom.

Get pets safely (and securely) down the aisle in the bed of one of our 3×3 box carts. This will ensure that you still get to incorporate your fur-babies into your special day, while also keeping the focus on you and your partner.

4. DIY brides, have no fear.

Your set-up assistant is here! From the centerpieces and decorations to the wedding favors, a DIY bride can spend countless hours creating memorable items for her wedding day that need to be transported to the wedding venue.

Don’t spend a moment longer than necessary unpacking and hauling supplies by foot to the ceremony and reception space. Our box carts and four-passenger golf carts with flip seats make set-up a breeze by giving you the ability to drive your supplies wherever they need to go.

5. No more “pee-mergencies” for the family farm and barn weddings.

With the average wedding having 127 people in attendance, you are sure to have to include extra outdoor restrooms into your wedding “decor” while hosting at your family farm or barn.

Keep the additional restrooms safely out of sight by offering a restroom shuttle to your guests. Doing this allows your guests to still access your restrooms quickly while keeping them out of the focus of your photographer’s lens.
