Whether you are retired or like to tinker on the weekends, living in a golf car community can open the door to your next money making side hustle. Everyone likes to make a few extra bucks, so why not use your love of golf cars to pad your bank account? If you are interested in starting a creative golf car related side hustle, here are some ideas:
- Battery Testing and Reporting
Batteries are the most expensive component of electric golf carts. And they also require constant attention and maintenance. The average golf car owner knows how to charge their golf car’s batteries, but may not understand the need distilled water levels or the role of battery maintainers. Golf car owners need a maintenance service for their golf car batteries, similar to a cleaning or lawn service.
Golf car owners in communities in Florida are willing to pay $20-$30/ month to have someone stop by and check their battery cables, water levels, and state of charge. Battery testers that provide a print out analysis of the batteries lets golf car owners know how much life is left in their batteries. Getting your whole street of golf car owners on board can add up quickly to a few hundred extra dollars each month.
- Create an Art Car
Are you the creative type who always has a cute wreath on the front door or homemade local jewelry? Use your golf car to create a mobile art cart Either create and sell your crafty goods from your golf car, or sell kits for neighbors to assemble the crafts themselves. Decorate your golf car to let everyone know about your crafty side hustle.
- Customize Golf Cars
Are you the person in your golf car community that neighbors turn to for golf car repairs or accessory installations? Spread the word throughout your community that, for a few bucks, you will install that new dash or audio system in their golf car. Some golf car owners purchase their new accessories online for a great price, but then have no idea how to install. This is an opportunity for you to create a golf car community side hustle.
- Golf Car Decorating
If you are the envy of your neighbors at every golf car holiday parade, maybe it is time to start a golf car decorating side hustle. Purchase your decorating materials in bulk and create unique concepts for your neighbor’s golf cars for some extra cash. If your golf car community members are tired of getting left behind when it comes to their holiday golf car, this may be your opportunity.
- Golf Car Taxi Service
Even in golf car communities, not everyone is fortunate enough to own a golf car. Offer your golf car taxi services. Meet new people in your neighborhood and provide quick rides to and from the pool or clubhouse. Post your rates and advertise your services. If local stores are golf car accessible to your community, you can schedule a daily run to the shopping center. And, while you are there, you will have some extra cash to spend.
