Default Public thanks to Grandpa & Grandma's

Just would like to say that my wife and I rented a cart from Scott and Vickie at Grandpa & Grandma's Village Buggies for our visit again this year. As usual, the service was excellent. Had a little issue with the cart on day 2 and they delivered a different cart as soon as we let them know. I highly recommend them if you have a need to rent a cart. When our time comes that we can move there, we will certainly give them first shot at selling us a cart.

Default Golf cart store

We toured Grandpa's and Grandma's facility. Scott is one proud guy of his ability to recondition golf carts for sale -- into new-like carts. He'll gladly tell you his profit margin, which seems very reasonable. Gas or electric.

Their customer service, from what I've heard, is excellent!

Hi Candj,

Hats off to you for paying them back with a glowing recommendation. It was thoughtful of you to take the time.

We LOVE Grandpa and Grandma's. And, we love the cart we purchased from them.

We have used Scott about 4 different times for rentals, always on time, good carts, never any issues at all. When we buy a cart we will strongly consider a rebuilt cart from Grandpa and Grandma's.

We rented a cart from them recently. When we had a problem with the turn signals Scott came to our house at 8:00 pm on a Sunday evening to diagnose the problem and repair a blown fuse. He could not have been nicer.

We originally rented from Granma and Grandpa. The cart was very nice and included a speedometer- very helpful. Based on that experience we bought a cart from them (gas). They did an excellent job and we are very pleased.

Here's kind of a different situation that leaves me feeling very positive about them:

We'd lined up a cart rental many months in advance with G&G's (via Scott) for a two week period this past February. He was cordial enough to be willing to rent a cart to us for a couple of weeks when most other places I talked with would only go for a month minimum. Anyways, it turns out that, in a wild change of mindset about buying versus renting a home in TV.....we ended up buying a home along with a new golf cart as well! I felt bad having to call Scott to cancel the reservation, figuring he might not be too happy (though I called probably 6 weeks ahead of time to cancel). I simply told him on the phone that we wanted to cancel our reservation - no rationale, background, etc. He looked it up in his reservation book/list, and said, "No problem at all, Bill. Thank you very much for being considerate enough to call" - he was as cordial as could be! Not even a tinge of sounding perturbed or anything along that line.

To me, that speaks volumes about him and their business. If we'd have been in the market for a reman'd Club Car, we'd have bought from them.
