Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Hi Can set up an appointment to inspect it? Thanks (10/3/21 3:53 PM)
A: Yes. We are open Monday to Friday from 6am to 3pm. (10/4/21 10:44 AM)
Q: How many miles and or hours on vehicle? (10/3/21 9:38 PM)
A: Since the batteries are dead, I have no real way to give accurate hours. I can say we used these cars on a limited basis to support our summer feeding programs so the cars would be used to go from our central kitchen drive a mile or two to a serving site and return. We estimate that we used 150 hours a year since 2014. (10/4/21 10:55 AM)

Q: Hi Can I have the model number? Thx (10/3/21 11:27 PM)
A: Model EL (10/4/21 11:28 AM)
Q: Your description “don't want to pay for the batteries to get them running again”. Does the cart run, turn on and function? Anything wrong with it? (10/4/21 2:35 AM)
A: Runs great when charged. It takes 6 batteries. Those batteries are expensive and based on the limited use we are not going to invest in the cost of the batteries. We usually would use these during our summer months in and around the community but, with the COVID , we did not do a summer program the last two years and thus, the cars just sat in the warehouse and the batteries have gone dead. (10/4/21 11:30 AM)
Q: Hello, is this car equipped with Heat or AC? What is the estimated cost of the batteries? Thanks (10/6/21 10:58 PM)
A: No heat, no air conditioning. I was told the batteries are about $600 each. It takes 6 to run the car. We have had the cars for 7 or 8 years. I think what happened was due to the pandemic stuff, we didn't use them for 2 summers and they just sat. Up to that time, we didn't ever have any battery problems. I think my staff did not ensure they were plugged in and charging since most staff was working remote or minimal hours. (10/7/21 10:25 AM)
Q: Are both cars listed? (10/8/21 1:02 PM)
A: At this time just the one is listed. (10/8/21 1:25 PM)
Q: Hello Is this auction for one cart or two? Thanks (10/8/21 1:36 PM)
A: At this time its just the one. (10/8/21 1:49 PM)
Q: Can I come see it. I live locally. Thanks (10/14/21 11:34 PM)
A: Yes. Contact our department and we can set an appointment. (10/18/21 12:27 PM)
