Following on from our news earlier in the week, we now have some used GoKarts for sale in our webshop. The price is £140, plus post & packing (price new £194). This will include the trolley, battery, charger and 12 months warranty. All of the trolleys will have been completely stripped, re-built and upgraded to the latest specification. They will be supplied with our standard battery, good for up to 27 holes.
These GoKarts have been used for various reasons; testing and development in house, loaned as demonstrators, or taken in as part exchange. Although as good as new mechanically, there are superficial signs of use and so cosmetically do not look brand new anymore. Our standard terms apply, so it you buy one of these trolleys, and it doesn’t live up to your expectations for any reason, we’ll collect it and give you all your money back.
To place an order click here to go to the shop. At the moment there’s a good choice of colour combos – but they’re getting snapped up, so if you have your heart set on a pink and grey one, and nothing else will hit the spot for you, better click fast.
**UPDATE – 17/03/09. Used trolleys are currently sold out**

I sent my order for a Gokart on Thursday, someone from Gokart phoned me on Friday, and low and behold the Gokart arrived on Saturday. How cool was that. Many thanks for your prompt service, should the Gokart break down, I hope the service is as good. If not, I shall be up there chasing you around the office with my 7 iron.
Many thanks indeed,
Peter W, Saltash

We’ve held on as long as possible, but we have to increase the price of a GoKart. From March 1st 2009, the GoKart with standard battery will be £219, plus £15 for UK mainland delivery. With the 36 hole battery, the price will be £249, plus delivery.
We thought that a bit of advance notice would be kind!
We launched in 2007 and, from the very beginning, owners have enthused about GoKart. They love the way it folds, how it performs on the course and the way they don’t have to fiddle around with connecting batteries. The new two year warranty just introduced reflects how happy we are with the way it’s working. We’ve won a handful of design awards (click here, here and here), but most importantly more and more golfers are trying GoKarts and loving them. We’re really excited to be going into the 2009 season!
But we have to keep an eye on the figures, and our decision to make the GoKart ourselves, rather than get it made outside the UK, does put the pressure on costs. We’ve already cut out the middle man by selling direct, rather than through golf shops, but still our margin has become very thin. We believe that, even at the higher prices, the GoKart is good value, and hope you will agree. We’re determined to maintain the high standards of design, manufacture and service that we’ve established so far, but we have get the numbers to add up, and as raw material prices continue to rise due to the weak pound, something has to give.

We asked what people think about winter golf. A stoic majority of 55% said they’ll play all year round, whatever the weather. Wow…GoKart website visitors are tough! Puts the wimpy 3%, who only play when the sun has got his hat on, to shame.
We’re having a bit of a Spring clean of the GoKart warehouse, and have found a limited number of used GoKarts we’d like to sell. We’re in the process of reconditioning them, and will make them available through our webshop for £140, plus post & packing (price new £194). This will include the trolley, battery, charger and 12 months warranty. All of the trolleys will be completely stripped, re-built and upgraded to the latest specification.

We mentioned a while ago that we entered the GoKart in the 2008 Red Dot Design Award (see here). This is an international product design competition that attracts entries from the best and biggest manufacturers in the world. Well, we didn’t win, but we were awarded an honorable mention!
