In addition to keeping the key with you at all times, the carts come with a cable lock that can be looped through the steering wheel and locked.
Electric carts need to be recharged each night which requires a standard electric outlet and battery charger (provided). We can also supply an extension cord if needed. They are quiet and can go about 15 miles on a full charge. If you will be driving the cart a lot, we recommend charging them anytime you are not using them. Gas carts are louder, but come with a full tank of gas that will last about 100 miles and does not have to be refilled at the end of the rental. Gas carts also handle hills better.
Lifted carts are simply carts that have had lift kits installed to raise them higher off the ground. This allows for much larger tires on the carts. It’s mostly just for looks, although the larger tires do give the cart slightly more speed. Around 2 MPH faster.
LSV stands for Low Speed Vehicle. These are normal golf carts that have been modified to include many car features such as brake lights, horn, seat belts, turn signals, speedometer, windshield wiper, etc. These carts are also allowed to be driven at night. North Carolina does not allow regular golf carts on the roads so you must rent an LSV if staying in North Carolina.
The cart can be parked outside and the rain will not hurt it. They can also be rinsed off with a water hose. Driving in the rain though can cause both electric and gas powered carts to quit working. Water splashed up into the undercarriage on wires will cause electric carts to quit moving and gas carts will quit working when the air intake sucks in water.
Golf carts are treated just like any other motor vehicle. Therefore, you can park it anywhere a normal car would be allowed to park. Some beach accesses have specific golf cart parking, but if those are all full then you would park in a car space. You cannot park on the sand dunes.
Our golf cart rentals are not allowed to be on the beach for any reason anytime of the year.

Most of the carts have headlights, but not all of them. Even with headlights though, golf carts are not allowed to be driven at night per SC state law.
