FAQ and info kit

Welcome,
Thank you for your inquiry regarding Parmaker golf and mobility vehicles. We are proud of the products we manufacture and are confident that if you take the time to read the information in this kit, you will be convinced Parmaker offers the best value. Please feel free to print out and keep this information.

Money back guarantee

We are very serious about our guarantee. If you are not completely happy after taking delivery of your new Parmaker golf buggy, send it right back and we will refund the purchase price (excluding freight). Our only conditions are that the unit be returned to us in the original packaging and in unused condition.

How the system operates

The only consideration is your choice of battery and charger and which combination best suits your needs. The Scout buggy requires one battery and the ride-on vehicles require two. Both machines have "optional extras" you may also purchase. Our advice is to keep it simple and only purchase those options you genuinely need.

Batteries and chargers

There are hundreds of batteries sold for use in electric golf buggies. Almost all of them are of poor quality and will not last as long as you would hope. Parmaker have a great deal of experience and knowledge of batteries and chargers, and know which brands represent the best value for money.

Freight

Our prices for freight are detailed on the price pages and provide delivery to your door anywhere in Australia. We only ship via our own carriers but take responsibility for arrival in good condition.

Please note: We cannot ship to post office boxes or RMBs, and we do not ship wet-cell batteries.

Services and repairs

We are confident of the quality of our products, so a “no quibble” warranty of up to 5 years is offered. If you do have a problem with your Parmaker, call us. Most problems can be solved over the phone and are relatively easy to fix. If you need a part, we can get it to you overnight. If you can get to our factory in Melbourne, your machine will be fixed while you wait.
