Kart transportation

At first glance shipping a go-kart looks pretty simple as well as straightforward. In reality though it needs a bit of preparing as well as special accessories to be done safely. There is more than one way of transporting a go-kart: you may use a dedicated trailer, a delivery truck or a regular car (if it’s big enough to fit a go-kart). With transporting a kart it is crucial to secure it safely to make sure it won’t become damaged during transportation and also to be certain it won’t become a danger to others on the road. A go-kart is lighter than for example a quad and a motorcycle, but it still weights over 100 kg so if it falls from the moving trailer, it can pose a real threat to other vehicles.

If you are shipping a go-kart on a trailer, you need some good quality tie down straps so that you can attach your kart to the floor of the transporting vehicle. It must not be able to move while on the road. Don’t forget to have some additional straps with you in case some belt rips on the road and you have to change it. When you are shipping a kart on a dedicated trailer, it’s smart to cover the kart with some tarpaulin or even a blanket to shield it against the weather because long exposure to rain or dust can cause real damage to your kart, sometimes permanently. If you are transporting your kart by a delivery van, it’s a good idea to use some bumpers to cushion any tremors on the road.

Remember you should always pump out all the fluids from the kart before shipment – that means gasoline and also water ect.. This will help you to ensure you’ll effortlessly avert possible leaking in case your kart falls over during emergency braking.

If you do not own a car that will be able to safely ship a go-kart or for some reason you don’t want to ship it by yourself, it’s a smart move to find a transport provider. Every hauler will easily fit a go-kart in their delivery vans. You’ll also get access to some professional knowledge, like how to secure a kart properly, which you’ll be able to use in the future.
