Golf Cart Charger Repair

At Carts on 12, we know how important it is to get your golf cart up and running as fast as possible and at the best possible price. One of the items that often fails is your electric golf cart charger.

We're really, really good at golf cart charger repair. In fact, our on-site senior repair tech received his electrician's license in 1965! And, we've been in the golf cart business for 38 years, so we know our stuff.

Drop Off Locally

If you're in the Northwest Indiana, Southwest lower Michigan or the Chicagoland area, feel free to drop off your electric golf cart charger. Turn around time can be as fast as the next day, assuming you didn't drive over it with a steamroller. Average repairs typically range from $45 to $100.

Mail In Swap Out

If you live outside our area (open to locals too), no problem, we can still take care of you, and at a surprisingly affordable rate.

How much do golf carts cost?

After the initial purchase, the cost of owning a golf car with proper care is very low.

If you purchase a cart that is a few years old and beyond the initial deprecation, the cost of ownership will be about $300 per year with deprecation, maintenance and battery use.


Should I buy a gas or electric golf cart?

This is perhaps the first question you should ask yourself and it has to do with your skill level, budget and cart usage.

Generally a gas cart is a few hundred dollars more than an electric until they reach about 15 years old then the electric cart retains more of its value as it is expected to have a longer life and far less repairs. We have many 30 plus year old electric carts still in operation.

What are the service requirements?

Just like your automobile your golf cart requires regular service for both longest life and operator safety. The frequency of this service depends on your usage but generally an annual service is required.

Why electric transportation like golf carts?

The early definition of a golf cart was a vehicle used to convey equipment and no more than two persons, including the driver, to play the game of golf in an area designated as a golf course.

But that's changed. Today you'll find golf carts on movie sets, at the park and at the local police department. There are more than 1 million golf carts in operation, and they're being used for numerous transportation purposes.
