I would usually avoid purchasing new golf equipment through on the web auctions. While you’ll be able to take some precautions, it’s hard to know regardless of whether you’re getting the genuine item or just a knock-off. Significant, recognized eBay sellers are possibly an exception.
The Amazon marketplace is large……..extremely massive. And there’s a great range of new and employed golf gear here.
o Callaway Pre-Owned – sell other brands too, eg Nike, Titleist,http://www.crypto-info.com/freerunprodeal.php, Ping,http://www.petstilo.com.br/freerunfans.php, TaylorMade. Offer 12 month warranty,http://discountnewmexicoland.com/domainview.au.php, cash back guarantee and 90-day buy-back o TaylorMade Pre-Owned -14 day funds back guarantee and 12 month warrantee o Golfbidder (UK) -7 day ‘no quibble’ returns policy, 12 month warrantee and some very good buyer’s guides to assist you select the right clubs
There are really a few nicely established online golf shops that stock a huge range of equipment and have a great deal invested in their brand. Some are better than others, but you shouldn’t get any surprises and you should anticipate good quality service, prompt delivery, a refund policy and plenty of data for buyers (eg acquiring guides). Some of the much better ones consist of:
USED GOLF EQUIPMENT STORES
o Golfsmith o The Golf Warehouse o Callaway Golf o Rockbottom Golf o Golf Outlets USA o Golf Discount o Austad’s Golf o Golf Galaxy o Snainton Golf o Online Golf
A few manufacturers (listed below), although not selling equipment on the internet, provide information and tools that would be helpful to on the internet buyers:
Some great on the web golf communities have formed more than the past couple of years and it is possible to now select from literally dozens of on the web golf forums to become part of. Several of the bigger ones have an location for buying, selling and trading golf equipment.
ONLINE GOLF FORUMS
I reckon these are the very best and they have an extremely active buy/sell/trade location:
o Golfsmith – 30 day returns policy. No warrantee – they defer to the manufacturer’s warrantee (which has almost certainly expired!) o Edwin Watts Golf – 30 day returns policy. No warrantee – they defer to the manufacturer’s warrantee o Direct Golf (UK) – used clubs sourced from trade-ins at Direct Golf retailers. 14 day funds back guarantee. No warrantee
There’s a lot of combined understanding in these forums, so the negative apples get found out quickly.
Craigslist hosts classified ads that service the entire globe, so you ought to also have a look here. It is the 8th most popular website inside the US, with about 50 million unique visitors per month!
o Golfbidder (UK/Europe) – primarily sell secondhand golf clubs, sourced from golf club specialists from around the UK (a small % are sourced directly from the public). Whilst most clubs are sold as ‘Instant Buys’, some are auctioned. You’ll find usually 30-odd items becoming auctioned at any 1 time and you may be able to pick-up an excellent deal
Stores that sell utilized equipment are a very excellent alternative to eBay, classifieds and other on the internet auction web sites. The larger utilized on the web stores will usually have: (1) a used club inspection and certification procedure, (2) no concerns asked returns policy, (3) 12 month warrantee; and (4) shipping harm guarantee.
Amazon also offers a free subscription to Golf Digest or Golf World if you spend a lot more the US$25 (US only).
MAJOR On the web STORES
There’s truly only 1 top club manufacturer selling online, and that’s Callaway. The others,http://www.perullas.dk/skotter/freerunsday.php, such as Titleist, Ping, Nike, etc obviously have websites to market their gear, but typically sell clubs via retail stores.
Check out Amazon Golf.
USED & NEW
Online classified web sites are another option, mostly for used golf clubs. The local classified paper has moved on the web, so it is very likely that you’ll find a classifieds website for your local region. Although you might not find the biggest range of golf clubs, if the seller is close by you can drive more than to check the clubs out.
o Grays Online (Australia) – sellers on this site are mainly manufacturers, distributors or retailers trying to move excess or slow moving stock……not consumer to consumer auctions. Not necessarily a poor factor as this reduces a few of the risk, but it also reduces the range. Whilst there were only about 40 golf items for auction when I last looked, there were some very good offers. Worth a look
When acquiring golf equipment on the web a lot of individuals assume of eBay (especially for employed clubs) along with the ‘major’ online golf stores. However, there are numerous more alternatives obtainable for acquiring golf clubs on the internet.
