Hi there, new to the forum. I’m looking to ship a Kart from the NW part of the country, to the Chicago area. Does anyone know any reputable shippers or have somewhere I can go to look for shipping? I’ve done an online search but I get a solid number, so far all I found is $400+ to have it shipped. It seems a bit much, even for a kart, I have shipped full size cars for almost the same price and distance. I’m currently going on sites like Freight Center for shipping rates.
I live in the western suburbs of Chicago. Suggest that you start by contacting these Chicago area kart shops, L.A.D Specialties at http://www.ladspec.com/ or Viking at http://www.vikingkartingproducts.com/. Dave Larson had a kart shipping service but could not find a web site. I can PM you his phone number if you wish to contact him.

I called the number you gave me for the guy in Antioch (Dave), and he was of great help. He was able to find me a reasonable rate, around $220 from CA. I also called Viking and LAD as you recommended and they were a big help as well.
