Have you ever attempted to buy or sell a golf car/cart and then tried to find the book value of a used golf vehicle, only to discover that there is no golf cart industry “blue book” to inform you of price values? And so in frustration you go to eBay and Craigslist and Google to see what everyone else is asking for their golf carts-and what a trip that turned out to be!
Automobile dealers have long had reliable information provided to them by NADA and Kelly Blue Book, including wholesale and retail values, condition limitations, mileage factors, etc., but not the golf car industry.
For example, administrative staff of a well-know golf car distributor recently authorized extensive research to determine the current average wholesale and retail value of a pre-owned 2007 Club Car Precedence they wanted to sell and they found other sellers were marketing the model in a staggeringly wide price range of $1,375 to $4,495! But how is it possible to compare the condition of the hundreds of 2007 Club Cars (or any other model) listed for sale by dealers, classified ads, the internet, and elsewhere, when there is no industry-wide accepted standard for rating the quality and condition of a used golf car?
That was the next dilemma encountered: comparative value – comparing apples with apples! And when looking deeper, the researchers found that many golf car manufacturers, dealers and wholesalers often DO provide some sort of rating system to describe the comparative value of their golf cars.
Many of these dealers had a sort of “report card” rating: A to F; others used a system of stars, 1 to 5 stars, or 1 to 4 stars, etc.; many dealers simply used terms such as “excellent,” “good,” “average,” and so forth; and still others gave numerical ratings for the condition of their cars.
The rating system which appeared to be most commonly used was a 1 to 10 rating, like the Hollywood Movie “10” starring Dudley Moore and Julie Andrews, with Bo Derrick being a “10”. In this rating system, a “10” is a new car and at the bottom end, “1” is junk. However, in their efforts to establish value the researchers were NEVER able to locate a standardized definition of the various numbers since none of the dealers ever provided a table or legend to accompany their numerical value.
Since necessity is the mother of invention, the researchers concluded to establish a new rating system that would match a numerical value with a written legend or explanation thereby setting an industry standard for describing the condition of golf cars that everyone could commonly use and understand. Hopefully, the new system will help everyone to match a number with an industry-standardized value of condition.
The researcher’s qualifications who created this new golf car rating system is based upon over 25 years of experience in buying, selling, and servicing tens of thousands of new and pre-owned golf cars with numerous full-service dealerships under their corporate umbrella. Here is the new standard rating system and legend:
IGC STANDARDIZED GOLF CAR RATING SYSTEM 1-10 RATING LEGEND
10 – NEW – NEVER USED
9 – NEARLY NEW: These cars are almost brand new-having very little use. There may be some minor wear on the tires and brakes, but no body chips, dings, scratches, or upholstery wear and tear. Battery discharge times are near new capacity and the chargers are in nearly new condition. The wiring, front and rear ends, hubs, bearings and frame are in nearly new condition. In the case of gas vehicles, the motor, engine parts, battery, oil, wiring, and controls are in nearly new condition and nearly perfect working order. These cars are usually less than a year old and may still be under factory warranty.
8 – EXCELLENT: Even though these cars are not new, they appear so and need no repairs, parts, or service, having had very little use. There may be some minor wear on the tires and brakes, but no body chips, dings, scratches, or upholstery wear and tear. Battery discharge times are excellent and the chargers have been well maintained and are in excellent condition. The wiring, front and rear ends, hubs, bearings and frame are in excellent condition with no signs of rust, corrosion, and/or fractures. In the case of gas vehicles, the motor, engine parts, battery, oil, wiring, and controls are in excellent condition and working order. They may possibly be under factory warranty.
7 – VERY GOOD: These cars are top-of-the-line vehicles and appear in a very good condition. They have been kept very clean and have had on-going service performed. There may be some wear on the tires and brakes, but very limited body chips, dings, scratches, or upholstery wear and tear. Batteries still have good life remaining and the chargers have been well maintained and are in very good condition. The wiring, front and rear ends, hubs, bearings and frame are in very good condition with no signs of rust, corrosion, and/or fractures. In the case of gas vehicles, the motor, engine parts, battery, oil, wiring, and controls are in very good condition and working order. Depending upon age, there is a slight possibility that these cars are still under factory warranty.
6 – GOOD: These cars are above the average quality compared to a car of the equivalent year and model. There is little need for repairs, parts, or service. They have been kept very clean and have had on-going service performed. The wear on the tires and brakes, body chips, dings, scratches, and upholstery are consistent with the age of the vehicle. Batteries still have good life remaining and the chargers have been well maintained and are in good condition. The wiring, front and rear ends, hubs, bearings and frame are in good condition with no signs of rust, corrosion, and/or fractures. In the case of gas vehicles, the motor, engine parts, battery, oil, wiring, and controls are in good condition and working order. Depending upon the age of the vehicle, of course, these cars are probably no long under factory warranty.
5 – AVERAGE: These cars are in average condition with average wear and tear for the year and model, including the batteries. They have been kept clean and have had on-going service performed. There may be some wear on the tires and brakes, and normal body chips, dings, scratches, or upholstery wear and tear for the model year. Batteries still have some life remaining and the chargers have been well maintained and are in average condition. The wiring, front and rear ends, hubs, bearings and frame are in average condition with some slight, if any, signs of rust, corrosion, and/or fractures. In the case of gas vehicles, the motor, engine parts, battery, oil, wiring, and controls are in average condition and working order. Normally, these vehicles will be out of factory warranty.
4 – FAIR: These cars need a lot of minor repairs, parts, and service. They start, stop, and steer and have some visible tire wear, upholstery cracking, and body fading, scratches, and cracks. The batteries are typically in less than average condition with replacement needed soon. The battery charger is in fair but still useful condition. The wiring, front and rear ends, hubs, bearings and frame are in fair condition with some signs of rust, corrosion, and/or fractures. In the case of gas vehicles, the motor, engine parts, battery, oil, wiring, and controls are in fair condition and are nearly always sold As-Is.
3 – POOR: These cars are in need of extensive repairs, parts, and service, including battery and possible charger replacement. The body is typically in poor shape with visible scratches, tears, and/or holes. The frame may be in need of extensive repair and there may be visible signs of rust or corrosion. The upholstery is poor, worn, and typically torn-and all in need of replacement. In the case of gas vehicles, the motor, engine parts, battery, oil, wiring, and controls are in poor condition and are always sold “As Is”.
2 – VERY POOR: These vehicles are in need of major repairs, parts, and service, including battery and probably charger replacement. The body is typically in very poor shape with visible scratches, tears, and/or holes. The frame is usually in need of extensive repair and there may be visible signs of rust, corrosion, and/or fractures. The upholstery is very poor, worn, and typically torn-and all in need of replacement. In the case of gas vehicles, the motor, engine parts, battery, oil, wiring, and controls are in very poor condition and are always sold “As Is”.
1 – JUNK: Only good for parting out or trashing.
At times, sellers feel that their golf car is not quite an “8” but better than a “7”. In these cases it is acceptable to rate a golf car a “7.5” for example. Oh, and as a sidebar, the reason the industry now prefers the term golf car instead of golf cart, is because the environmentally-conscious vehicles that are now manufactured and sold around the world are much more sophisticated and advanced compared with the old noisy, rattling, smoky, gutless carts of the past. Many of the new golf cars are equipped like a modern automobile in many ways.
Now meanwhile, the company who put out the new Standard Rating System are currently working diligently to complete a new IGC Golf Car Blue Book which should be completed soon and made available for the golf trade and the public both in printed as well as digital internet formats. The goal of this new publication is to standardize golf car/cart and other ATM-type vehicle price values nationwide.

The StreetPro Cab Systems are high quality, easy to install and offer parallel doors with “swing-back door action,” enclosing the car instantly.
This feature protects you and passengers from the elements, which is ideal if you regularly take your car in the rain or snow. It also offers protection from the sun’s damaging rays, keeping riders more comfortable and safeguarding the interior from sun damage.
Nearly a must for golf cars used at airports, golf courses, retirement homes or any space where heading outdoors is necessary, it provides a touch of luxury while also extending the life of your investment.

Unlike golf car covers you may have seen before, the Curtis line features hard-shelled sides which don’t only look better but also provide better protection. It’s like comparing a soft-top convertible to a hard-top. It’s sturdier, the noise from the elements outside is decreased, and it lasts longer, especially in stressful environments.

Known as the finest golf cart enclosures on the market, a Curtis car will instantly stand out in all the right ways when you zip along your favorite course or take guests on tours.
The Curtis system is ideal for any location and region, but if you’re in an area prone to harsh weather, it’s nearly a requirement. To learn more about golf car accessories, including enclosures, contact Intermountain Golf Car today.
Golf cars can be a fantastic investment for those who hit the links at least once a week.
But for many people, renting is a better option. How can you decide which is right for you?
It all comes down to how much you’ll use the golf car and for how long. It’s tempting for a new golfer with deep pockets to go all out on equipment. The best clubs, the perfect clothes and accessories, and even a personal golf car are sure to get you deep into the golfing community, right?
Not necessarily, and quickly spending a lot on a new hobby can make you resent it. If you’re considering a golf car for your sport, it’s a good idea to golf at least once a week for a year before you start to shop around.
Benefits of Buying
Buying a golf car is akin to buying a regular car. It’s yours, so you can customize it as you like and you don’t have to worry constantly about hidden rental fees (some companies have them!), taxes or ensuring you return it on time.
At the same time, it’s not really yours, and in some cases there might be evidence left in your golf car by renters. Tiny scratches and other telltale signs can drive you crazy.
Buying your own golf car can be an investment and a means of bettering your sport, your business or your life.
Compared to commuter vehicles, golf cars require much less maintenance and upkeep. They’re built to withstand tough elements, and in some cases give owners renewed independence. For example, if you want a specialty car for getting around a large estate, it’s much more comfortable and leisurely than using a wheelchair.
Renting a golf car is much more cost-effective if you only need one from time to time. It’s also the only option (unless you’re incredible wealthy) if you’re far from home and only need a golf car in a certain location for a set amount of time. Renting lets you try out a number of makes and models, you don’t have to worry about maintenance and at the end of the day, you know somebody else is going to take care of the insurance, storage and inspections.
Renting is also a fantastic way to test out models before buying your own. Maybe you’re sure you want a Precedent i2, but after test driving it, you think not. Perhaps the Signature Edition 4-passenger was never on your “to check out list,” but since you rented one, you’ve seen just how perfect it is for you.

If you are looking to buy a golf cart, whether you want a new one that was previously unowned or one that was used, spring is the best time to make the move. Whether you buy from a private owner or dealer, you may find the best selection at this time the year, especially among preowned models.
Great Deals from Private Owners
In the spring, many snowbirds return home, often with the knowledge that they may not return for seasonal living. With families in the North, they may opt for spending more time with their families, so they put their golf carts on the market. Even permanent residents may seek to upgrade at this time of the year and decide to sell their old vehicle themselves rather than turning it in. While purchasing from a dealer has advantages for most buyers, some prefer the lower prices that they can often get if they buy from individuals instead of dealers.
Benefit from Golf Cart Trade-ins
During the early spring, used golf carts spring up on dealer lots like daffodils and tulips – in great supply and in a variety of colors.
Why? During the winter, golf courses and other entities that utilize large quantities of golf cars turn in their whole fleet in pursuit of new vehicles. High-end golf courses want to offer their sportsmen vehicles that are free of dents and free of the maintenance that may be involved with older units. Every four or five years, they go shopping for new units at the time of the year when off course usage is down.
These units offer excellent values for residential buyers, as well as small business buyers. Even though the owners may trade them in to prevent having to make a major investment in them, most of the carts have been on service contracts, which means that they have been well-maintained during their previous ownership. When a vehicle comes in for a trade, a good dealer will refurbish them to make sure that they run and look great.
Shop Now for the Best Choice
The big advantage you will have if you visit a dealer in the spring is that you will have the first pick of the refurbished trade-ins. You might find one that has just the accessories you want; if not, you will have time to get your new golf car decked out as you want it.
You will also get the best choice of color early in the season. The rule of thumb in the golf cart industry is that if you want a sedate beige vehicle, wait till the summer. If you want an attractive model in white, gray, blue, black, or green, shopping early pays off.

Golf cart shopping? Deciding between a new or used golf cart for residential use is one of the biggest decisions you will have to make. Cruising around in any type of golf cart is more economical than a regular passenger car or truck made for the road. The common wisdom is that you will usually save money with a used one, but you can get the best value when you purchase the vehicle that is right for you.
What’s Right for You?
Deciding what is best for you depends on your usage. If you live in a close community where golf carts are the common mode of transportation and seldom go outside your complex, your standards might be different than if you anticipated driving off the property to go shopping or do your errands. Some residential developments are self-contained, so that most of your needs are met on site without having to travel far.
Pros and Cons of a New Model
You may be the type of person that always preferred to buy a new, previously unowned car when you needed to trade in your vehicle. The same thinking may transfer over to your golf cart purchase. When you buy a new golf cart, you will pay more money, but you will enjoy the benefit of being the first owner, which also gives you the certainty that the vehicle was not involved in an accident or has mechanical problems that were undisclosed. You will have the luxury of deciding on the color and the features, so that what you drive off the lot is exactly what you want. Moreover, you have a manufacturer’s warranty, and maybe one from the dealer as well.
Pros and Cons of a Used Golf Cart
A used golf cart offers a lower price tag and as an added bonus, may include accessories as part of the price that would be costly to add on if you were buying a new vehicle. You may find a used product that has the modifications you need for your disabled spouse, or has special roofing or windows that might cost you hundreds to add.
If you are willing to consider a used vehicle, here are some questions you should ask:
- What was the history of the vehicle? If possible, talk to the original owner and review service records and talk to the owner.
- How good is the battery? The typical lifespan is 4 to 6 years if they have been properly maintained, but negligence can reduce their lifespan. Be prepared to invest in new batteries, which may cost about $800, when you buy a used vehicle.
- Are the accessories properly installed? For example, if a used cart has a rear seat kit, the previous owner should have replaced the original leaf springs with new heavy-duty ones.
- Is it street legal, or can it be easily modified for use on the streets if you plan on driving the cart outside your community?
- Is there a warranty? If you buy a used cart from a dealer, verify that it has been inspected, maintained, and comes with a warranty.
