    Golf cart for sale...

    Advertisements



    I'm not sure if I can do this... and I'm sorry if I'm breaking a rule...

    For any new students or current students, I have a golf cart for sale.. it's a bluish-gray, four seater golf cart; well-maintained, excellent condition; it is a one-year rebuilt golf cart--with new batteries, suspension system, and two tires (rear); Since buying the golf cart, I have placed a windshield, rear-view mirror, horn, wheel guards to keep the mud from splashing on you when driving in the rain or after a rain; I have also re-upholsterd the front seat plus placed a new board underneath.

    For me, the golf cart was an excellent purchase.. for those who know me.. they know that I'm the shortest person at school, and I could not reach the pedals of an adult female's bike, and was too embarassed to buy a child's bike with the seat raised... plus it has been great to have... to give tours for students coming to the island, shopping (have more space for items), majority of the wind and rain are reduced because of the windshield.. and an advantage from other golf carts...the top of the golf cart also covers the back passengers... it is a well-built golf cart;

    I will place a picture of the golf cart as soon as I learn how to do it...

    If interested.. please email me at atgtaz@gmail.com. Thank you... Have a wonderful day!!!

    dont get jipped!

    to all perspective students, dont get ripped off on golf carts..you can get a good cart for as low as $1,000 talking to right people,..students sometimes sell them HIGHER than what they paid for it,.so be weary..on the flipside..i got a great deal on a used cart which runs great, for $1,100 which is considered "fair" but not "good"..be careful about the high end carts...they get a lot of abuse and then get a paint job to masks the damages..so whatever you do,..dont buy a cart for more than $1,200 tops!..you only need it for some months to get from point A to point B

    golf cart

    First, sorry for the delay in writing but returned to the states and have been busy in getting my study schedule together for USMLE exam and putting things away;

    Second,.. yes, you do have to be careful in buying a golf cart but most students do not overprice the golf carts. We just want to get the fair price in what we paid and what we put into the golf cart.

    And now, regarding my golf cart.. here are the facts:
    The golf cart is originally of February of 1999, rebuilt in November 2004 with new batteries, suspension and alignment system; I also had new tires placed in the rear; Since buying the golf cart, I have placed the windshield, rear view mirror, horn, battery meter, and have also redone the front seat and plywood underneath. I have maintained the golf cart every two weeks with battery checks and water maintenance; and during the breaks, I have taken it in for "tune-ups." I have been the only one to drive the golf cart.. and there are some students who are rough with the golf carts.. going through mud puddles and holes at full speed, and needing to be in the repair shop moreso than on the road.

    When I bought it one year ago.. I paid $8000 Belize ($4000 US), and am asking $7000 Belize ($3500 US). It includes the charger which I had to get another one. I listen to my golf cart and the noises that it makes... I keep a can of WD-40 on hand so that I can keep the screws well-oiled; and I use the Crystal purified water for the batteries;

    As far as mechanics... I use Polo as my mechanic, but there are several to choose from.. I personally recommend that you don't go to Wilson.. he is the "rip-off" king; I learnt the hard way. And if you don't want to take my word on the golf cart, please ask any of the staff at the school and/or the students once you arrive at the school. I'm not trying to "rip" anyone off... You can even ask my former landlord, Terry Colbert...(he will be the landlord for Shirley who is also a new student). I wish that I could send you a picture of the golf cart.. but I can not download the picture.. I apologize... any other questions.. please email me.. thank you..

    Guys and Gals

    ..just because someone goes out and spends a whopping $8,000+BZ for a used 6 year old golf cart doesnt mean he or she has to do the same. I'm sure most students are'nt looking for a luxury cart, just one that can get them from point A to point B. So people come out to the island, check out various golf carts for sale, and then decide if you think a golf cart is worth $1,000 or $3,500!! (U.S)..besides bicycles are a great way to get around town, and nearly EVERYONE will offer you a free ride, the biggest regret i have in Belize is buying a cart because for the most part it was pointless, because you will always find a student, a friend, or a pedrano that will offer you a ride. ..and guys although this particular cart is a good one, a beater for less than a third of the price will run just fine.

    I'm not going to get into a discussion re: golf carts and which one a student should buy.. that is not my intention. I will say this... My golf cart works, and will take you from point A to point B, and whatever other points that you would like to travel. It is well-maintained and everything works.... I'm not going to sell a bad product... For those who are looking for a golf cart or some type of transportation...

    Please remember that what you pay is what you get... quality is KEY for any type of golf cart.. When you are looking for a golf cart, NEED to look for the following:
    1. Quality of batteries--don't want to be charging the golf cart every night; that is part of your electric bill; A good electric golf cart should be able to go from your place to town three times without charge; the better the batteries, better the resale value;
    2. Tires--look at the thread of the tires
    3. Suspension and alignment system--should be able to take a "licking and keep on ticking."

    Bicycles are BEST. And if my feet could have reached the pedals properly, I would have gotten the bicycle. I tried several bicycles before considering a golf cart. It is economical and useful.

    Taxis are also good for transportation especially on those rainy days, but it can become expensive. My first semester: I walked to/from school, and would take a taxi from town with my groceries; then it got to be expensive.. I cut it down to once-a-month groceries and other items... by taxi but there are certain items that can not wait for once a month such as milk (I drink 3.5 boxes of milk per week), bread, meat, toilet paper.

    Whatever you choose as transportation, maintenance is needed except the taxi. It is not about driving a golf cart or riding a bicycle to get you from point A to point B. Remember, you will need to sell either one when it's time to leave. The roads on the island are not the best... especially with the big trucks driving on it day in and day out; and when the rains come.. they become horrible, there are potholes everywhere, and the roads are uneven, and you don't want to be riding very fast through them. One more thing re: golf cart.. make sure that you are the only one that drives the golf cart or if you do let another person or student drive the golf cart, they drive responsibly. There have been past student owners who have let other students drive their golf carts and have driven fast over potholes and/or driven into trees.

    I hope that this has been informative.. I do want to sell my golf cart but at the same time, I want the buyer to make an informed decision. If you are interested in a golf cart, once you get to the island, check out my golf cart and compare to others.... thank you...

    Please Buy A Genuine Club Car

    To all my fellow students, if you plan on purchaseing a golf cart for a premium (i.e. above $2,000) please make sure it is a GENUINE ORIGINAL CLUB CAR, because they are much more desireable for re-sale, have readily available parts and service and are the mainstream. Please do NOT purchase a built cart regardless of a fancy paint job, there parts are sourced from various refurbished and junk parts from salvage yards which are cleaned up and put together making a "homemade" cart, which is difficult to sell to a new seasoned islander. Also club cars are more quicker and are not as bulky and cumbersome as the rebuilt carts which are made from generic sources such as used lawn mowers, laundry machines, and tractor parts etc.The only reason i mention club is because there reputed to be the best on the island

    the REAL COSTS of cart ownership

    GUYS AND GALS, remember the nicer the cart, the HIGHER the insurance premiums...insurance is REQUIRED which can be as high as $1,000 per cart U.S. plus you must register your car which will set you back as much as $500, for instance if you purchase a cart for $3,500 expect to pay the higher end in insurance, but then again purchase a less expensive one, your insurance premiums will be reduced,..golf carts on the island are treated as automobiles not as recreational cars.also the bigger the cart, the more bulky and cumbersome it is, and a lot slower than a 2-seater, also for quick re-sale stick with a bone white color..bold and off colors tend to not appeal to local buyers..i hope these pointers are helpful in future students planning on buying a cart

    Regarding permits and insurance payments, the golf cart is registered and permit papers are in order. All payments are up-to-date, and they are paid yearly. I'm speaking of the golf cart that I have to sell...
