There are plenty of places to find cheap (and good quality) go karts, and your local retail dealer likely isn’t one of them. With less overhead and smaller mark-ups, online sources are the best places to buy new go karts for cheap these days.
Another option if you’re looking for cheap go karts is to buy used. Buying used comes with more hazards than buying new go karts, but can also save you a lot of money. If you’re looking at used go karts, be sure to check out our tips for buying used go karts.
Places To Buy Brand New, Cheap Go Karts
1.Online Stores: As I mentioned earlier, online stores are the best place to find cheap go karts for sale. It’s much cheaper to fulfill orders online than to maintain a storefront, hire salespeople, pay rent etc. I’ve seen prices up to 50% cheaper than traditional retail dealers. Here are some of our favorite stores:
2. Ebay: Ebay is a great source to find both new and used go karts for cheap. Lots of regional dealers also post their wares on ebay, and it’s nice to have a huge selection of karts in one place. Be sure to carefully inspect a seller’s feedback before buying. Don’t be afraid to ask questions if you’re unsure of what you’re getting.
Places to Buy Used, Cheap Go Karts
3. Craigslist.org and Other Online Classifieds: Lots of people are using online classifieds these days to sell their old and unwanted items. But just because the stuff is being sold doesn’t mean it isn’t good. You can find great deals and cheap go karts through online classifieds, but you have to be patient and monitor the listings for several days/weeks to find the best deals.
4. Flea Markets & Yard Sales: Not all deals have to be found online. Before there was craigslist, there were flea markets and yard sales. These are still great places to find deals, but the trade off is that it may be a lot more work to find what you’re looking for.
5.Local Networks: Your friends and family, or their friends and family may be selling cheap go karts. Since you’re a friend, or a friend of a friend, you might even be able to negotiate a bigger discount.
6.Local Classifieds: There are still plenty of people who post things in the local classifieds and don’t even go online. Pick up your local pennysaver or newspaper classified’s section and see if you find anything interesting.
