FAST FREE SHIPPING with Liftgate on New Go-Kart SALES
Vehicle Units will be shipped via truck line to the address you provide. The unit may not leave our warehouse for up to a week after your order. Due to the high purchase price, it takes 1-3 business days for your bank to release the funds to us. Once we have the funds confirmed, we place an order for the freight. There is not always a truck available immediately, so it can take 1-3 business days for your kart to leave the warehouse. In some case, your kart may be in transit up to 7 days, depending on your location. We ship to all 48 continental states, so it can be difficult to give precise shipping times for every possible location.Once the go kart arrives at your location freight hub or service center, it will be moved to a local delivery truck and that specific service center will call you to schedule an appointment. They will verify your address and accessibility at this time.
In the event that the truck line does not deliver to the address provided, it will be necessary for you to pick the unit up at the truck line’s nearest terminal. The truck driver may call you to set-up a delivery appointment. It will be your responsibility to get the product off of the delivery truck and onto your mode of transportation. It is best to bring someone with you to help and not to expect any help from the truck driver.
If your address is un-deliverable, it can take up to 14 additional business days to arrange a pickup of your kart due to logistics.
