Carts and parts at Big Don's
Louise Bolger | Sun
Roy Sumner, of Big Don's sells, services and repairs golf carts.
What’s more fun than tooling around Anna Maria on a golf cart? Picking up dinner at Publix, heading for the beach or checking out a great café for lunch or dinner. Whatever you do, it’s more fun when you arrive in a golf cart.
Roy Sumner returned to Bradenton, where he grew up, from Tennessee a year ago and did what he has done for 18 years opened a shop to sell, service and repair golf carts. Sumner’s shop is closer to the Island than any other golf cart repair service, but distance isn’t a problem for Island residents since Sumner makes house calls and delivers to and from the Island.
He can handle almost any type of repair for electric and gasoline golf carts, as well as replacing parts and batteries on-site. He and his technician will come out to you, whether you’re on the Island or in another location in Bradenton, diagnose the problem and make recommendations. Sumner also has used golf carts for sale as well as accessories to get your golf cart looking sharp.
Big Don’s customers include individuals who live on the Island, in mobile home parks and adjacent to golf course communities. He counts many senior citizens among his repeat customers and has built a very large referral base during his first year of business.
Sumner says his rates are affordable and well below what large dealers charge. He won’t sell you anything that you don’t need, and with years of experience, Big Don’s can be counted on to do a thorough job in a timely manner.
And if you’re wondering who exactly Big Don is, well he’s Roy Sumner’s 12-year-old son who has become the face of his golf cart business.
Let Big Don’s keep your mini ride in tip top shape so you can enjoy the tropical breeze while scooting around town or improving your swing on the back nine. It’s why we live in Florida.
