Talking Best price and service from Battery Boys!

I do not post many things as I seem to be still trying to adapt to The Villages and Florida as we are from Southern California.

Anyway, in California I have never seen a gas cart so I brought my 2006 Precedent with me, electric version. Long story made short, I needed batteries and shopped around and found the best deal and prompt service from David and the crew at Battery Boys.

Nathan Lewis, the tech that came out was outstanding, I am picky so this is an unusual thing for me to give praise.

Great job at a great price..... $669.95 for 4 -12 volt Trojan T 1275's installed with old ones taken away, great deal!

Called Battery Boys over on CR 108 and they supplied me with the proper battery and a new cable and I am back on the road again. Battery Boys are priced very reasonable and they know their business.

At 65, lived on a farm, have been my own mechanic all my life and that was the first battery I even witnessed blowing up. It is real loud and could have been devastatingly dangerous.

NOTE TO SELF: If something smells hot stand back and call the professionals.

Glad you are ok and didn't get hurt. A dangerous situation for sure. We just got back from Sumter in our cart and on one of the hills coming out of a tunnel a man and a woman were pushing their golf cart up the hill. We stopped to see if they needed assistance and they indicated that they did. Hubby helped them push the cart of the hill. They indicated their battery cart didn't have enough "juice" to make it up the hill. We are happy we have gas carts with a fuel Gage on them.
