Golf Cart: Cost of Shipping
Shipping a recreational or utility vehicle is generally cheaper than shipping a car, which probably comes as little surprise. These types of vehicles, especially golf carts, are smaller and weigh significantly less by comparison, all of which adds up to cheaper costs when transporting. Because of the smaller size, it’s typically easier to find available space on a carrier as well.
Just like shipping any other type of cargo, two of the most important factors when shipping a golf cart are the weight and transport distance. As we mentioned above, the weight of golf cart is just a fraction of that of a car so it can be transported much more affordably, even over a longer distance. The downside to this is that a golf cart is much cheaper than other types of vehicles so your transport costs can sometimes equal or exceed the value of it.
Since a golf cart is not as sturdy as other types of vehicles, they can sometimes be more susceptible to things like dirt, debris and bad weather during shipping. Because of this, it can be a good idea to choose an enclosed carrier when having a golf cart shipped. Unlike a standard open air carrier, an enclosed truck completely shields the vehicle from anything that could damage the golf cart.
