Can a Golf Cart Fit in the Bed of a Truck?

It’s a common question among golfers: can a golf cart fit in the bed of a truck? The answer is yes, but there are some things to consider before attempting this.

First, the size of the truck bed and the size of the golf cart must be taken into account. Depending on the size of the truck, it may be difficult or impossible to fit a golf cart in its bed. Additionally, if the bed is too small, there may not be enough room for the cart to sit securely without it being at risk of tipping over or coming loose during transport.

The second factor to consider is weight capacity. Most trucks have a maximum weight capacity that should not be exceeded.

The weight of a golf cart varies depending on its type and size, but typically ranges from 200-400 pounds. It is important to ensure that the total weight of both the golf cart and any additional items placed in the truck does not exceed this limit.

The third factor to consider is safety. The bed of a truck should be secured before transporting a golf cart by using tie-down straps or other securing devices. This will help keep the cart from shifting or becoming damaged during transport.

Finally, it’s important to check with local laws and regulations regarding transporting a golf cart in the back of a truck. Some states require that a flagpole or other identifying device must be attached to indicate that something is being transported in order for it to be legally transported on public roads.


In conclusion, while it is possible to fit a golf cart in most pickup truck beds, there are many factors that must be taken into consideration such as size, weight capacity and safety regulations before attempting this task. It is always best to double check with local laws and regulations before attempting any transportation task.
