    Can any one suggest a good, inexpensive, way to ship a used kart across the country?  Idaho to MASS or NH?  It can be picked up crated and ready to go.  Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Ed Chappee

    Tony’s option is pretty good
    Another one to consider, depending how big it is, or if it’s a roller, or complete with engine and all?

    If it’s just a roller, and you don’t mind removing some body parts and axle, then you can box it all up and take it to Grey Hound Bus station/terminal And have it shipped for about $100 bucks!

    Or you can leave it alone, and if it has an engine, just get a 6′ pallet, crate it around it, and wrap it around with clear plastic, take it to Fastenal and get it shipped for about $150 to $200 bucks, no matter how heavy it is.

    I shipped 2 karts on top of each other for $200 bucks, about 3 months ago, with Fastenal.

    Keep in mind the buyer has to go pick it up to the nearest station to him.
    My 2 cents, Fast Freddy. 😉
