CONCORD—With the use and popularity of golf carts stretching off the golf course, newly opened Gumbody Custom Carts in Springville offers people a place to purchase their own cart or customize one to their wildest dreams.
Gumbody Custom Carts, located at 14214 Route 219 in Springville, offers a wide range of services to meet the needs of any golf cart owner. Mike Uhrich said his business can provide anything from ordering parts of golf carts, servicing broken carts and offering golf carts for those looking to get one of their own. For anyone looking to customize their golf cart, Gumbody offers a wide range of accessories including rims, radios, lift kits, custom seats, paint jobs, motor upgrades and more.
“Anything you can do with a golf cart, I can do it,” Uhrich said.
The business started about five years ago, with Uhrich helping to work on golf carts in his garage between his work in construction. When the former owner contacted him about taking over the business, Uhrich jumped at the chance.
“When I was a kid, I would tear things apart and put them back together so it was a natural thing for me to get into,” Uhrich said. “They say you have to take one big chance in your life so I guess this was mine.”
Since he opened earlier this year, business has been good and Uhrich is happy to be able to offer a place where people can take care of all their golf cart needs.
“A lot of people had golf carts and didn’t know where to take them to get them worked on, or people that wanted to buy them didn’t know where they could so it’s been working out real good,” Uhrich said.
Though they specialize in golf carts, Gumbody Custom Carts also services vehicles such as four-wheelers and snowmobiles. Both repair work and customization for those recreation vehicles is available.
“I personally work on every single golf cart that comes in and I think that makes a big difference because I can be really fussy even on myself and attention to detail is huge,” Uhrich said.
While hours do sometimes fluctuate, Gumbody Custom Carts is usually open Monday - Friday from 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. and in the mornings on Saturdays.
