We collected the most frequently asked questions below, enjoy!
What is the difference between SC Carts and my local golf cart dealer?

SC Carts focuses solely on building custom carts which means we offer the highest quality product at the very best price. Your local dealer services, repairs and sells new and used carts. Although the local dealer is very important to the industry they cannot offer the level of quality and customization that SC Carts does.

Why does SC Carts only use Club Car Precedents?

SC Carts has done a tremendous amount of research with regards to the platform we wanted to use for our custom carts. The Club Car Precedent continually came out on top, from the aluminum chassis to the independent front suspension, the Club Car Precedent is a product that we are proud to put our name on.

The inventory page doesn't include anything that suits my exact needs, will SC Carts custom build me a cart to my specs?

We have custom golf carts in stock that will suit every style. If we don't have one in stock that's perfect for you, we'll have a custom build on deck that hasn't yet hit inventory. So in the off chance that there isn't anything in stock that meets your specific needs, contact us to see what we have in the works coming down the line and we can discuss your specific application!

Why does SC Carts only use used carts?

SC Carts chooses to use used carts for a couple reasons: Using used carts is environmentally responsible—we are taking an existing product and "recycling" it into something new and amazing. Also, by using used carts we are able to offer our customers a huge cost savings versus a new cart. Our customers end up with a custom cart that is better than new for less money than a stock new cart.

Why does SC Carts choose electric vs gas carts?

SC Carts is always focused on being environmentally responsible and electric carts provide a zero emission mode of transportation. Electric carts are virtually silent when operating which is becoming mandatory in many golf and resort communities. Electric transportation is the way of the future so it makes perfect sense that this is our focus.

What does SC Carts do during the refurbishing process?

Each and every custom SC cart goes through our refurbishing process. This process involves disassembling the entire cart right down to the frame, from there the cart gets inspected and anything that is worn or damaged is replaced. This may include but is not limited to front end bushings, brakes, spindles, battery cables, steering joints etc. If you haven't had a chance to look at our blog we would recommend taking a minute to do so as you will see how extensive the refurbishing process is.

SC Carts always makes a big deal about the fact that they refurbish all of their custom carts, why is this process so important?

The only way you can know what you are purchasing from a company is if the company knows what they are selling you. Our extensive refurbishing process gives us the confidence that we are selling our customers the very best product on the market. Each of our carts is photo documented through their entire refurbishing process, this allows us to show our customers the condition of their cart beneath the shinning paint. It is impossible to know what condition the carts are in without this extensive refurbishing process. There are many things that the body of the cart hides, including families of rodents who have made these carts their new home, if the cart hasn't gone through the SC Carts refurbishing process the rodents may make your garage their next home. There is no need to settle for anything less than our refurbishing process.

How long will my cart last on a charge?

Many things can affect the driving range of your cart, including ambient temperature, terrain, driving conditions, payload, driving habits, battery age and tire pressure. A properly charged stock cart with healthy batteries can attain over 25kms on a single charge. If you take the same cart, add a lift kit, 4 people and hilly terrain and that range can easily be cut down in half or more. Because each of our customers applications are different, we encourage our customers to keep track of how they use the cart and the range they are getting for the first while when they purchase their new cart. This will help determine the capabilities and range of your cart for your particular application.

Help! I'm confused about the whole charging process.

Charging your cart is as easy as plugging in a lamp. Each cart comes with a special charger that plugs into the cart and then into a standard 110v wall socket. It takes approximately 8hrs to fully charge your cart, and the charger automatically turns off when the charging process is complete. The batteries in your golf cart are not like the old cell phones days where you wanted to let them go dead before charging, it is actually very important to keep your batteries in a charged state and it won't hurt to top them up during the day if you are using your cart a lot, otherwise a charge overnight is always recommended to ensure a long healthy battery life.

How can SC Carts offer the best carts on the market and still be less expensive than any of their competitors?

We have many years of experience owning and operating large manufacturing and custom fabrication companies, and this knowledge combined with the connections we have made in the golf cart industry has allowed us to keep our costs lower and provide a higher quality product than any of our competitors.

I do not live near the SC Carts facility, can I still purchase an SC Cart?

Absolutely! If you are too far away to come pick up your cart we can arrange to have your cart shipped right to your location, we ship SC Carts world wide.
