You just bought a new golf cart! Hooray. Now, make sure you have some protection. Let’s go over what makes the best golf cart covers!
As a new golf cart owner (or especially if this isn’t your first cart), you know the importance of protecting your investment.
Not only is a golf cart a fun way to get around the golf course, but it can also be used as a great way to get around your neighborhood.
I personally got my golf cart from golfcarts.com at the start of summer and trust me, there were so many people those first few months that wanted to know where we got it, and how much was it? (usually followed with “if you don’t mind me asking?”) and can I drive it?
Whether you use your golf cart to get around your property or take it on camping trips, covers are essential to protecting it from the elements.
Golf Cart Covers are Essential for Outdoor Storage
Leaving your golf cart outdoors without protection can lead to damage over time.
You don’t want that! You want that color to keep that shine for as long as it possibly can.
That’s why a quick Google search will show all kinds of storage covers for golf carts.
They are also sometimes called golf cart rain covers but are mostly just called cart covers.
Rain, snow, and other environmental factors can cause rust, corrosion, and damage to your cart’s paint and upholstery.
Even if you keep your golf cart in a garage or shed, it can still be susceptible to damage from dust and debris.
Like a stray piece of wood flying from your saw as you try to complete your newest home renovation project.
Don’t let that be you. You’ll never live that one down. Unless you catch it on camera and go famous on TikTok.
A cover for your golf cart can be considered one of the essential golf cart accessories. It’s a simple tool and an effective way to protect your cart from potential hazards.
Our covers have an elastic bottom and undercarriage buckle that will keep the cover securely fastened during use.
Vents help reduce condensation and provide airflow so you can keep that musty smell out.
It even offers a hook and loop flap in the rear to access the cart while covered. Easily get to your storage area!
A Waterproof Golf Cart Cover Protects Against Environmental Damage
One of the primary benefits of a waterproof golf cart cover is that it protects against environmental damage.
Rain, snow, and UV rays can all cause damage to your golf cart over time.
A high-quality cover will keep your cart dry, protect against sun damage, and prevent dirt and debris from accumulating on the surface of your cart.
Sometimes that environment can be a little more human.
I had a neighbor that just bought a new car and the day after they brought it home a kid from the neighborhood rode by on their bicycle and scratched the paint with their handlebars.
Yikes! No fights broke out but our cart cover could protect your new golf cart from things like that happening – if you ever store your baby outside.
Not everyone can keep it in their garage all the time.
Our all-weather cover protects the entire cart from rain and replaces seat covers
Golf cart seat covers can be particularly beneficial as they help protect your seats from direct exposure to UV rays, which can cause fading and material deterioration.
By using our covers, especially since it comes with UV treatments, you can block some of the harmful light and increase the longevity of your cart and its seats.
It’s often called an enclosure cover because it covers the entire cart, unlike seat covers.
Seat covers are popular in cars because car covers are not as quick and effortless when you’re trying to cover the entire car. But our protecting cart covers enclose the entire cart, roof, wheels, and all!
No more wet seat or seats (if you have a version with rear seats) in your cart!
You like the way your cart looks? Let’s keep it that way!
Using one of our covers means that your golf cart will look better for longer, making separate seat covers unnecessary.
How do you choose the best cover for golf carts?
Choosing the best golf cart cover shouldn’t be hard, just like choosing the best cart shouldn’t be hard, but here are some things to consider:
- Material: Look for covers made of high-quality materials that are durable, water-resistant, and UV-resistant.
- Size: Make sure to measure your golf cart before purchasing a cover to ensure a proper fit. We’ve made sure our covers fit our MD-Carts like a glove. They cover the roof and all the way over the rear seat.
If you have a Yamaha, Club Car, or EZGO – our cover will typically fit those carts. But just to be sure contact us and speak with one of our golf cart experts!
- Features: Consider amenities such as vents for air circulation, zippers for trouble-free access, and tie-down straps for secure fitting.
- Budget: Set a budget and find the best cover within that range that meets your needs. With quick shipping, we think our cover is a steal!
By thinking about all these factors, you can find the best cart cover to protect your investment and keep it in top condition for years to come!
How you should store your cart outside
Storing golf carts outside requires some preparation and care to ensure they are protected from the elements. Here are some tips on covers and storage:
- Cover the golf cart: This one is pretty obvious since you’re on a page about golf cart covers. Covers are straightforward and make painless storage!
Just a minute or two can save you a lot of money from potential cart damage.
- Choose a level surface: Park your golf cart on a flat, level surface to prevent it from rolling or tipping over. If it has a parking brake make sure to engage it!
- Use wheel chocks: Place wheel chocks behind the tires to prevent any accidental movement. This is when you want to really make sure it’s not going anywhere or if you’re on a steep slope.
- Keep the battery charged: If you’re storing your golf cart for a long period of time, make sure to keep the battery charged regularly to avoid it losing its charge. This answers the question “how long do golf cart batteries last?“
- Check on it regularly: Even with a cover on, check on your golf cart periodically to ensure that everything is in good condition. This is a good time to order any parts or accessories you might need. We ship our accessories quickly but you still want to make sure you have time to install them before your next ride.
- Put it under an enclosure for extra protection: Some people like to store their golf cart under their carport or in an outbuilding or shed. Be sure to check your warranty for any storage information and if you’re not sure just talk to an expert so the info you have is clear.
We’ve even had some people build a separate golf cart enclosure just for their carts! That can certainly help if you’re in a wooded area with a lot of wind to keep any falling limbs from hitting your cart.
Simple to wash
Most things can easily be sprayed off with a water hose. You might also want to find a nice car wash kit. A good microfiber mitt that you use to clean a car can make it simple to wipe everything down and keep it all clean. You can wipe the cover, the seat, the body – everything!
By following these steps, you can safely store your golf cart outside and protect it from environmental factors for extended periods of time.
