Looking After Your Utility Vehicles

July 27, 2022

Regular maintenance of your utility vehicles is critical when you want to the most of your investment. Whether your utility vehicles are used to transport your patrons, employees or goods, it helps to tend to them regularly. That’s the best way to minimise repairs and extend their life.

Here are our top maintenance tips to care for your utility vehicles.

Charge the Batteries

Just like any electric device, your electric utility vehicle depends on batteries to function. Be sure to plug your utility vehicle whenever they are not in use. This way, your golf carts are ready to use whenever they are needed. You won’t ever have to worry about their battery level. What’s more, you can be sure, it won’t run out of juice mid-way.

Check the Battery’s Water Levels

For your batteries to work properly, their lead plates must be completely submerged in water. Be sure to check the water levels in the batteries to ensure they are submerged. If they are not, just add water to bring the level back up.

To do that, begin by fully charging the battery. Next, add distilled water, directly to the battery until the water level reaches the optimal level. Be sure to check the battery level once a month to keep any problems away.

Keep the Utility Vehicle Clean

The simplest way to keep your utility vehicle looking good at all times is to keep it sparkling clean at all times. If your golf cart is being used all through the day, then regular cleaning it is even more important.

Inspect the Brakes Once a Year

Utility vehicles are typically driven at slow speeds, which means their brakes won’t wear out as fast as the brakes on a motor car. However, be sure to inspect the brakes of your utility vehicle at least once a year. The brake pads, drums as well as cables must be inspected and even adjusted at least annually to ensure they are working correctly.

If you are not sure how to go about it, you can bring your utility vehicle to your nearest service centre.

Look Out for Oil Leaks

If you notice that your utility vehicle has been leaking oil, it could be because of the rear differential. If you notice oil on the ground around your utility vehicle, climb underneath it and check whether there’s any oil build up on the rear differential. An oil leak is a surefire sign of problem.

Have the problem looked into immediately to avoid any severe damage to your utility vehicle.

Paul Bush OBE – Director of Events, VisitScotland

The Carryway operation was run very professionally and smoothly and to a very high standard. Their knowledge and attention to detail with the complicated planning and logistics involved were exceptional; they were a pleasure to deal with and I can highly recommend their services.

Rachel Mitchell – Senior Manager for Golf Events, IMG Golf

It has been a delight to deal with Carryway, who were our Official Golf Buggy Supplier for The 2019 Solheim Cup. They combine efficient logistics with a professional approach to every aspect of delivery, and the equipment our event benefited from was both functional and stylish. A big thank you to a wonderful Partner.

Dave Player, Team Brit Racing – CEO

The Carryway buggy was a lifesaver – and that’s no exaggeration! We were racing in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival, which is a 45 mins support race just before the start for the big 24hr race. Our garages were about 2km away so getting all our gear to/from the pitlane for the race was made so simple because of the buggy! And it would have taken (the team) ages to get there and back! We are enormously proud of our new buggy and the livery made for it. It helps us stand out and helps raise our profile, not to mention being an essential team donkey.”

Simon Widowson – Event Men

Thank you Carryway for supplying the buggy for us at Chatsworth this year. All went well and no issues at all – it was a definite improvement on the equipment supplied last year by a different company. Happy to use you again for next year .

Daryn Cochrane – Head of Golf & PGA Professional, The Westerwood Hotel & Golf Resort

Thank you for the excellent customer service that we recently received from Hugh Healy, Carryway Support. Hugh was very thorough and had excellent communications with us regarding our buggy fleet at The Westerwood Resort – nothing was too difficult for him.

Caring For Life / Charity – Carl Rayner

Our open day event is a very important day for us, and it makes life much easier to have a relationship with a company (Carryway) that we can rely on each year.

Carryway are always a pleasure to deal with and their drivers are always friendly and professional. It takes a little bit of worry out of my job knowing that I can rely on your good service.

Many thanks to the team, especially Adam who was friendly, helpful and professional.

Nick Rushworth – Golf Operations Director, MacDonald Linden Hall

It is a pleasure to work with Carryway, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.

We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
