Used Golf Cart Part Risks: Warranty, Selection, Damage
In part one of this two-part series, we went over some of the key risks you're taking if you choose to go with used or pre-owned parts for your golf cart's repair or upgrade needs. From possible compatibility issues to quality concerns, aesthetics and more, there are a few reasons why it typically pays to go with optimal, new golf cart parts directly from reputable manufacturers.
At Cricket Carts Direct, we're here to offer a wide range of quality parts for our electric golf cart models, ensuring our clients always have a robust selection available to keep their golf carts in great shape or upgrade them as needed. Here are some of the other major risks you're opening yourself up to if you're using used golf cart parts, plus why new parts are the way to go in most cases.
Like many other products or items, warranties are a major factor when it comes to golf carts and their parts. Not only do most golf cart manufacturers offer solid warranties on their new parts, but you also get the added peace of mind that comes with knowing you're purchasing directly from a reputable company.
Most used golf cart parts won't come with any warranty, which means if they break down shortly after purchase, there's no guarantee you'll be able to get your money back or receive a replacement. This also means you'll have to pay for any repairs or replacements out of pocket, adding to the overall cost and hassle.
Flooded Selection - With Limited Info
As anyone who has recently browsed the used golf cart part market can tell you, it's flooded with options from a wide range of sellers. This can make it difficult to determine the quality and compatibility of each part, as well as any potential issues that may arise.
In contrast, when buying directly from a manufacturer or reputable seller, you'll have access to all the necessary information regarding the specific part you're purchasing. This will help ensure proper compatibility and quality, as well as peace of mind knowing you're getting exactly what you need for your golf cart.
Another major risk with used parts is the potential for hidden damage or issues that may not be immediately apparent upon purchase. While some sellers may disclose any known issues, others may try to hide them in order to make a sale. This can leave you with a part that doesn't function properly or even causes further damage to your golf cart.
With new parts from reputable manufacturers, you can trust that they've been inspected and tested before being sold, greatly reducing the risk of hidden damage or issues. Additionally, you'll have access to customer support in case any problems do arise.
