BERARD Scott Carrier FROM MOTORCYCLE TO GOLF CART Golf carts can be used as intended to help golfers get around the course quickly, but they often have more unconventional uses such as traversing large estate properties, campgrounds, or campuses. If you own your cart, be sure to get it insured. If the golf cart is only being used on your personal property or estate, it may be covered under your homeowners insurance policy, and those used off property could be eligible for coverage under your auto insurance. However, in many cases, a motorcycle insurance policy adapted and tailored for golf cart use is the recommended way to go. This can cover liability, property damage, collision, medical payments, vandalism, theft, and weather. Basic golf cart usage is similar to driving a riding mower; it's probably covered under your homeowner's policy. A riding mower doesn't have to be registered, you don't need a license to drive it, and you only use it on the grass. If this also describes your golf cart, you can probably just add it to your homeowner's insurance policy to protect yourself in the event of an accident. At HUNTER INSURANCE, INC., our agents will determine the appropriate amount of coverage limits and discounts available to policyholders. To learn more, please call 769-9500, or visit our agents at 389 Old River Rd., Lincoln. P.S. Optional coverage can be added to a golf cart insurance policy to protect customized equipment like body modifications and even road-side assistance. Peter J.
