Shiver Carts

Our story of how we got into the business is probably not a typical
one. Just prior to starting our business in March 2008, I found myself
without a job and had a young family to take care of. Not knowing where
to turn to, I asked God to lead me. It wasn’t long before I met a
gentleman who was selling wholesale custom golf carts and I quickly
found an interest in the business. I started to work with him on a
part-time basis, free of charge and quickly learned the basics after
only a few weeks. He eventually convinced me to open a retail location
in a small, vacant storefront. The store was roughly 300 square feet
with a small shop in the back. It was just big enough to hold a few
carts. At this time, I was still buying my carts wholesale from this
gentleman and reselling them. As our clientele and business grew, we
hired a mechanic to customize our own carts and to provide service.
During this time we attended any local functions that would allow us to
set up and display carts and would loan our carts to support local
functions and events just to get our name in the public eye.

As time continued, we outgrew our small shop and rented the adjacent
6,000-square-foot building next to it. I remember we had so much space
we almost didn’t know what to do with it at the time. Going into our
third year, our business had again doubled and we were feeling the
crunch for space. I had a customer who owned a business and had told me
that they were contemplating selling their building. As it turned out,
we decided to buy it. Three months later, we moved into our new
16,000-square-foot facility with two acres of fenced-in storage directly
on a major thoroughfare on GA HWY 82 in Tifton. Three years later we
opened our Valdosta location.

We are an authorized dealer for E-z-go, Yamaha, Bad Boy Buggies and,
most recently, Dixie Chopper. We have grown to become one of the
country’s largest dealers of new golf carts. We are planning on
continuing to grow our business by serving our valued customers and
providing honest and exceptional service. Without them, my family, staff
and the guidance of our Lord and Savior, our small dream would have
never been possible.

Thank you,
