Kart transportation

Seemingly shipping a go-kart looks rather simple and straightforward. In reality though such action needs a bit of preparing and special accessories to be done safely. There are a few main ways of transporting a go-kart: you can use a special trailer, a semi-trailer or a passenger 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 during transportation but also so that it won’t become a danger to other vehicles on the road. A kart may be smaller than for example a quad and a motorcycle, however it’s still about 100 kg and if it falls from the trailer while on the move, it can pose a real threat on the road.

If you are shipping a go-kart using a trailer, you should have some good quality tie down straps to fasten your kart to the shipping vehicle. The kart shouldn’t be able to move during transportation. Remember to take some additional straps with you in case some belt tears on the road and you have to use a new one. If you are shipping a go-kart on a trailer, it’s smart to cover the kart with some sheet or even a bed sheet to shield it against atmospheric conditions as prolonged contact with rain or even dust can seriously damage your kart, in some cases for good. When you ship your kart by a delivery van, it’s a good idea to obtain some bumpers to cushion possible shocks on the road.

Remember you should always pump out all the fluids from the go-kart before it gets on the road – that goes for fuel and also oil ect.. This will help you to ensure you will be able to effortlessly avoid any leakage in case your go-kart tips over during sudden turn.

When you do not own a vehicle that will be able to safely transport a go-kart or for some reason you don’t want to do it by yourself, it’s a smart move to hire a hauler. Most of them will easily find room for a go-kart in their delivery vans. You’ll also get a chance to gain some expert know-how, e.g. how to secure a kart properly, which you can then use in the future.
