Understanding Powersports Vehicle Customer Liability

One of the best decisions a family can make in terms of sharing great quality time together is the purchase of a new powersports vehicle, such as an ATV, UTV, Dirt Bike, Scooter or GoKart.

Powersports vehicles offer a unique opportunity for hours of great outdoor recreation. As the saying goes – the family that plays together, stays together.

In this age of way too much time spent indoors on digital screens of various types, it is a very positive activity to get outside and have fun as a family. Riding a powersports vehicle also can be a worthwhile experience for young people in terms of improving motor skills and learning responsibility.

Also, in a period in which social distancing is highly recommended or even crucial, families can do just that through spending enjoyable time together out on the trails or on the track.

Of course, it also is important to understand potential liability and legal issues involved in the purchase and use of a new ATV or similar vehicle.

One of the first responsibilities for a customer is to understand all the pertinent laws and regulations in your local area and state regarding operation of the vehicle. It is critical to know whether any vehicle needs to be and can be successfully registered in your locale.

At FamilyGoKarts.com we want you to own and enjoy your new powersports vehicle in a safe and legal manner for years of solid family fun. We have significant knowledge of appropriate laws and regulations and are available to help you understand what applies in your locale – but the ultimate understanding is your responsibility. We also have extensive safety information that we can share with the customer.

Vehicle owners must agree to read the user’s manual carefully and also inspect the product in detail upon its arrival. Owners also must agree to wear proper protective agreement at all times when operating the vehicle.

FamilyGoKarts.com has 30 years of experience in helping people find the right powersports vehicle for their particular use. This involves such issues as vehicle size, engine power and available safety features. Our website provides lots of information, including videos, to help you make the right decision.

Once a decision is made on your purchase, there are some responsibilities involving shipping. We ship at no charge to a commercial address. It is up to the customer to make a complete inspection of the vehicle package when it arrives and sign off with the driver. Any damages must be noted upon arrival.

The customer also is responsible for understanding the 60-day money-back guarantee and how the warranty works. This information is explained in detail on our website and we will be happy to discuss any details with you.

Also found on the website is a complete customer liability release that must be completed upon purchase. The release outlines many of the subjects discussed here and is designed to make certain the customer understands all safety and operational issues related to the selected powersports vehicle. Our experienced staff will, of course, review any questions a customer has regarding the form.
