A golf cart bill of sale transfers the ownership of a golf cart in exchange for cash or trade. Since there is no registration after the sale, after a bill of sale is signed the transaction is complete.

It is recommended to sign a bill of sale AFTER payment has been made in full.

Battery (Golf Cart)

It is recommended to check the golf cart battery status before buying. A battery usually lasts 5-8 years depending on usage and care. If a new one is needed, it can cost the new owner between $800 to $2,000.

To check its status, conduct a quick diagnostic test of its volts and amperage. This video provides a good overview of how to test a golf cart battery.
