Unlike shipping a standard sized vehicle, transporting a golf cart is a specialized service that not every shipper has extensive experience with. That being the case, you may get some wildly different cost estimates when comparing prices and evaluating companies. When in doubt, the best approach to lean toward the companies that have both experience and a physical office in location in the areas you’re shipping to and from.

The Process of Shipping A Golf Cart: Tips & Info
Aside from which company you decide to go with, you’ll have some choices to make when shipping a golf cart. The are two main ways to have a vehicle transported: in an open carrier, or in an enclosed one. As you might imagine, an enclosed carrier offers more protection and privacy, but it does come with an additional cost. Similarly, you can have a shipment delivered directly to your door (as opposed to a delivery terminal) as a premium service.
Here are three of the most important aspects of golf cart shipping:
Vehicle tracking - Every shipment we make is tracked electronically, allowing us to provide customers with real-time updates on the status of their delivery. We focus on providing affordable, on-time delivery for every single vehicle and we pride ourselves on keeping our customers in the loop and the lines of communication open. We’re happy to answer any of your questions at any point during the process.
Insurance - Insurance is included as part of every cost estimate we provide, regardless of vehicle type or destination. Whether you need a golf cart shipped across the state or across the country, we’ve got you covered against potential damages.
Crating - Depending on the method of shipment, you may want to consider having you’re golf cart crated before delivery. This is not always necessary, but it can be a good idea in certain situations (for example, air freight, or flatbed transport). We provide crating services for motorcycles, go-karts, UTVs, golf carts, and any other type of recreational vehicle.
