Frequently asked questions about LSV Golf Carts:

 

What is the difference(s) between a standard golf cart & a LSV golf cart? A standard golf cart is not street legal, and can be ticketed by law enforcement if used on a public road.

LSV's are legal on any NC public road with a speed limit under 35 mph, and carry a registration and license plate. LSV's have additional safety features that most golf carts do not have, such as: Headlights, taillights, and turnsignals, integrated safety belts (front), rear seat belts, safety glass and mirrors.

Some private communities do not allow carts of any kind; Monterey Shores and Ocean Sands do not allow any carts in their private communities. Please contact your community, or rental property manager, to ensure operation in your vacation community.

Is delivery service available?

Yes, free delivery is available for weekly rentals.  For advance reservations, your cart will be delivered on check-in day, before 8pm.  It will be picked up (early morning) of your departure date and must be clean and fully charged to avoid an additional $75 fee.

You can save $75 by picking up & returning your LSV cart (no delivery service) to one of our 4 convenient store locations.  Your OBX address must be within close proximity to one of our stores.  We can help advise you on this option at 1-800-635-9559.

Range will vary depending on speed, cargo, etc.  We encourage you to recharge the cart whenever not in use.  It should be charged every night, overnight.  We require the carts to be 100% charged at the end of your rental to avoid a $75 fee.  The cart has a charge level indicator on the dashboard.
