CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Golf carts are a hot commodity as the Democratic National Convention approaches.
At Paradise Golf Cars off Brookshire Boulevard, the rental orders keep rolling in.
"Business has really picked up during the DNC time here," said Jeremy Ratcliffe.
Ratcliffe said more than 50 golf cars are reserved for next week's events. Clients include out-of-town news organizations and local businesses.
"We've actually had people calling us to possibly rent cars to deliver pizza with," said Ratcliffe. "About anybody you can imagine...we have."
With traffic expected to be stop-and-go at best, DNC visitors want a quick way to scoot around town.
"Golf cars are very handy, because for one they're smaller than a regular car. You can just plug them in. You don't have to go to the gas station with them," said Ratcliffe.
Many of the carts have already left the building. WBTV headed to uptown to see where they ended up and found quite a few inside a fenced-in lot across from Time Warner Cable Arena. More are on the way. In fact, Paradise Golf Cars had to build several new vehicles and even take others off local golf courses to accommodate the DNC demand.
"I think it's going to be pretty good all around, for everybody," said Ratcliffe.
