Kart transportation

At first glance shipping a kart seems rather easy and effortless. Actually though such action needs a bit of preparing and often also professional accessories to be done efficiently. There are a few main ways of shipping a go-kart: you may use a dedicated trailer, a semi-trailer or a passenger car (if it’s able to fit a go-kart). When shipping a kart it is important to fasten it safely to make sure it won’t become damaged during shipment and also to be certain it will not pose a threat to other people on the road. A kart is lighter than for example a quad or a motorcycle, however it’s still about 100 kg and if it happens to fall from the moving trailer, it can pose a real threat on the road.

To safely transport a go-kart using a trailer, you need some good quality tie down straps so that you can attach your vehicle to the floor of the transporting trailer. It must not move during transportation. Don’t forget to have some extra belts along in case some belt rips on the road and you have to use a new one. When you are shipping a go-kart on a dedicated trailer, it is smart to enclose the kart in some sheet or even a bed sheet to shield it from atmospheric conditions as long exposure to rain or dust can really damage your go-kart, sometimes for good. When you are transporting your go-kart in a delivery van, it’s a good idea to use some bumpers to cushion any shocks during transportation.

Remember you should always pump out all the fluids from the go-kart before it gets on the road – that means fuel and also oil ect.. This will help you to ensure you’ll effortlessly avoid any leakage in case your go-kart falls over during emergency braking.

When you don’t have a vehicle that allows you to safely ship a kart or you can’t ship it by yourself, it’s a smart move to hire a transport provider. Most of them will easily fit a go-kart in their transporting vehicles. As a bonus you’ll get a chance to gain some expert knowledge, like how to secure a kart safely, which you’ll be able to use next time you need transportation.
