Starting up a gokart business

Let's face it: everyone loves gokarting. It's a fun past time, and it's one that when compared with other types of racing can be relatively low risk. In addition, gokarting is a great social sport that you can share with your friends. You can gokart competitively, or you can simply ride around the local area, or on a specifically designed track. Whatever your preferences, there's a type of gokarting that you'll enjoy. However, if you're serious about gokarting, you might have considered it as something you want to make a career out of. After all, gokarting is big business for parties, outings, and events such as buck's nights and so on. Still, if you want to set up a gokart business, you should make sure that you have your business hat on.

First, you should take into account who in particular you're targeting. While gokarting is great fun, and can be enjoyed by all, you'll do better if you pick a specific market. Are you aiming at the college crowd? Leisure riders? Racers? The needs of each of these cohorts will vary significantly, and so will the demands of your business as a result. You'll need to consider the types of gokarts you want to buy or hire, as well as how many of them you'll need. Costs will also vary depending on how long you want to keep them on the road, as well as how often they'll be used. You'll also have to pay for licenses. These may include a business license, as well as other licenses such as health and safety licenses and so forth. You'll likely need to have your business vetted to make sure that you're offering the required safety items, and that your vehicles are safe. Set aside some money not only for setting this up, but also for ongoing costs.

Be careful when purchasing your gokarts. This is a niche area, so there will likely only be a few suppliers available. Find out which of these suppliers are reputable, and try to get a recommendation if possible. When purchasing or leasing your gokarts, make sure that they have been tested by a mechanic, and that they are road worthy. You should also ensure that they are insured, and that they are backed up by a warranty certificate. Gokarts can be relatively expensive to buy, and you don't want to find yourself wasting money on having to replace a faulty product. Even if you are covered by insurance, replacing a faulty model can be time-consuming, and when you're running a business, time is money.
