Kart transportation

At first glance shipping a go-kart seems rather easy as well as uncomplicated. In reality though it takes some preparation and professional equipment to be done safely. There are a few main ways of shipping a kart: you can use a special trailer, a semi-trailer or a regular car (if it’s able to fit a kart). With shipping a kart it’s crucial to secure it safely so that it won’t damage in transportation but also so that it won’t become a danger to other vehicles on the road. A go-kart is smaller than a quad or a motorbike, but it’s still over 220 lbs so if it happens to fall from the trailer while on the move, it can cause a serious accident on the road.

To safely transport a go-kart using a trailer, you need some good quality tie down straps so that you can fasten your go-kart to the floor of the transporting vehicle. It must not be able to move while on the road. Remember to have some additional straps along in case some belt tears on the road and you have to use a new one. When you are transporting a go-kart on a trailer, it’s smart to cover the kart with some material or even a blanket to protect it against atmospheric conditions because long exposure to rain or dust can cause real damage to your kart, in some cases for good. If you ship your go-kart in a passenger car, it’s a good idea to use some bumpers to absorb any tremors during transportation.

Remember you should always pump out all the fluids from the kart before it gets on the road – that means gasoline but also oil and so on. This will help you to ensure you’ll easily avert possible leaking in case your kart tips over during sudden turn.

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