What to consider when Buying Kids Atvs vs. Buying Youth Go Karts - Q9 PowerSports USA

by Q9 PowerSports Staff Members on 12/09/17

When considering buying a powersport vehicle for your child there are many options but the main two people consider are ATVs and Go-karts. There are a couple of differences in terms of safety and riders between the two. If you have multiple children to buy for you could go the route of a go-kart because often go-karts have two seats so they can ride together and alternate driving. The safety aspect of the two vehicles is a little different, when riding a go-kart there is a roll cage to prevent any harm from the vehicle rolling over. ATVs are not considered as safe because there can be a rolling element to riding them, the manufacturers over the years have noticed this and now a lot of ATVs have wide wheelbases to prevent this issue, along with remote kill switches throttle governors and tether switches to kill machines if they were to fall off. Furthermore there are and continues to be a lot of improvements to youth powersports to make them safer so you can rest easy whether you will be buying a go kart or and ATV that your child will be safe as long as the riding recommendations are being followed.


Safety to concider before Riding Power Sports - Q9 PowerSports USA

by Q9 PowerSports Staff Members on 11/16/17

Most important always wear a DOT approved helmet, goggles, long sleeves, long pants, boots and gloves.  Don’t worry wearing all this isn’t going to be a drag, in fact for most outdoor activities adding this gear only increases the excitement of the experience.  ATV riders should always be conscious of head, eyes, hand and feet protection.

Never ride more then one person on a single rider ATV, and no more then one passenger on an ATV specifically designed for two people

Ride an ATV that is right for your age, all ATV’s should be clearly marked with safety sticker showing appropriate age for that ATV.

Riders under the age of 16 should always ride with supervision

Never ride on paved roads except to cross and only when done safely and where permitted

Never operate under the influence of alcohol or drugs 

Ride only on designated trails and at safe speeds

Shopping for a Four Wheeler consider Off Brand, Here's why - Q9 PowerSorts USA

by Q9 PowerSports Staff Members on 11/13/17

All terrain vehicles manufacturers have come a long way from the days of the Honda 3 wheelers, even though they where super fun and ultra cool and even now they are highly sought and heavily collected . Over the years Power Sport designers and engineers have evolved so fast that todays machines have already revolutionized the power sports industry with the same innovative technologies you find equipped in top end automobiles, to literally transform modern day Four wheelers and ATVs into beautiful mechanical works of art that are much more safety oriented then most people expect. The same way large Name brand Auto manufacturers use power steering and traction control on their machines, now the name brand power sports machines are also equipped these same exact amenities, right down to the blue tooth navigation, electronic braking, even cruise control. I mean Name brand power sports are amazing, but what if someone wanted to have all that power sports fun and adventure but didn't really have thousands of dollars to buy one of these machines. Again, name brand power sports Like Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki are great. Their Quads and UTVs are designed with the best equipment and they are beautiful machines, but in todays economy when buying a Brand New Four wheeler expect that it will cost as much as full sized car and have the hefty payments to mach. Granted these machines tend to last a number of years with minor to medium maintainance and these ATVs do hold their resell value fairly well, which makes them a good investment if your looking to keep an ATV for 10 - 15 years.

Like most Americans, myself included, we want the best of everything and we want it for the lowest possible price. This applies to homes, cars, cloths, food and just about anything you purchase, or have to pay for. It's only logical to not want to waste your hard earn money. Nowadays there are affordable alternatives everywhere like generic medications in place of name brand prescription drugs to synthetic diamonds for jewelers to offer affordable lower cost jewelry. The same holds true for the power sport industry. Off brand or Chinese Power Sports have been in the United States for decades and they have been proving themselves reliable and worthy. If you ask any name brand Power sports dealer about an off brand ATV, they will trash talk it to no end and say all kinds of crazy unverified stuff, but hey honestly I would too if I could get you to buy my $8000 Polaris off of the sales floor instead. Heck, he may even drop it to $7000 for you.
I have worked at Q9 powerSports USA for 14 years and I see first hand, off brand four wheelers and other off brand machines that are 10+ years old that are still out running around. How can something that cost a fraction of the price last as long and still be running? Many times we have outfitted an entire family of 4 for less then $4000 each with their own four wheeler. Granted our machine don't have traction control, bluetooth, power steering or dynamic shift adjustment, but if your looking for a basic machine that will provide just as much family fun as the name brand units provide, then I would recommend not leaving out the possibility that Chinese power sports maybe a good fit for your needs. If your looking to impress your buddies with the latest super Quad, or you just like over spending you hard earned cash then don't be shy get the Mega Quad with all the bells and whistles, but the first scratch you get going through the woods will depreciate that machine so bad it really isn't that funny.

Free shipping? Seems too good to be true. What’s the catch?

by Q9 PowerSports Staff Members on 11/09/17

As a consumer, you want to pay for the product - not shipping! To meet those demands, Q9 Powersports has built a logistical model that allows us to take on the major costs associated with shipping, freight, etc., rather than passing them on to you, the customer. How, exactly, are we able to do this? Let’s dig a little deeper and find out how Q9 Powersports is able to offer you the product you’re looking for without charging you a cent for shipping.

We’ve been in business since 2004 - selling ATVs, dirt bikes, go karts, mopeds and more nationwide for over 13 years! In that time, we’ve covered all 50 states in the U.S., meaning LOTS of shipping and LOTS of planning. Some businesses don’t think it’s worth their time to sell products to prospective customers not in their area - we relish that opportunity. In order to accommodate this goal, we need distribution - we have distribution warehouses scattered throughout the United States - for example, we have locations in CA, GA, IN, MD, TX, and WI. These strategically located hubs allow us to get products to any customer anywhere in the contiguous 48 states within a reasonable amount of time while also doing so in an economical way that prevents us from having to charge the consumer.

Next, let’s focus on carriers. Q9 Powersports USA does not have an in-house owned fleet of freight vehicles - to do so would be expensive and require us to pass that expense on to you. Rather than charging you, the consumer, for our services, we take that expense on by utilizing third-party logistics partners. We are VERY selective when it comes to logistics and freight carrier partners; given the nature of the merchandise we sell, it is of utmost importance that we have partners we can trust to deliver products in a timely, safe, and careful manner - we want each party involved in this process to handle the merchandise as if it were their own. With that said, Q9 Powersports takes care to carefully select suppliers based on evaluations of their timeliness, support, and history of good business.

Now you’re probably wondering - do you charge extra for residential delivery, like the other guys do? The answer: No. Given our extremely high sales volume (over 4,000 machines per year nationwide), we are able to ship to any residential or commercial address in the contiguous 48 states without charging additional fees for residential delivery (please note, there may be some exceptions if your delivery address falls outside of a partner carrier’s delivery zone - though these are incredibly rare).

Here at Q9 Powersports USA, we take pride in the fact that we offer FREE residential shipping anywhere in the contiguous 48 states (Alaska and Hawaii call for quotes). We are guided by the principle that our prices be conspicuous and our services reliable. Dealerships will often advertise products below MSRP but hide surcharges and additional shipping fees in the checkout - often topping $200! At Q9 Powersports, you can be sure that the price you see is the price you pay - our pricing is clearly spelled out and we will never surprise you with freight charges or additional delivery surcharges. This transparency is what allows us to meet your demands for great products without charging a dime for shipping. 

So, leave the stressful part to us - take a look at our products and let us handle the shipping!

What should you do if your machine arrives with shipping damage?

by Q9 PowerSports Staff Members on 11/06/17

Don't panic and DO NOT REFUSE THE SHIPMENT. Shipping Four Wheelers, ATVs, Go Karts, Mopeds, Scooters and Dirt Bikes is very expensive and refusing shipment will complicate, waste money and slow everything down. Most often 95% of the time the freight company does a great job and the machine order arrives with absolutely no issues or damage, but everyone in awhile a unit can accidentally get damaged in transit when moving it across the country. Now, I want to point out that the steel framed create that the machines ship in are designed to bend and buckle to save the welds on the machines from getting stressed during transit and just because a create shows up bent up and in bad condition, Doesn't mean that the machine is damaged, it means the create did what it was designed to do. It is very important to inspect the machine and document any type of damage or missing parts with the freight company at the time of delivery. If you do not document damages with the freight company at the time of delivery and sign off on the delivery that it arrived in good condition, that will waive their damage liability for the shipping insurance and they will deny your claim if it is not reported at the time of drop off. Don't let the truck driver rush you, take as long as you need to inspect and report damage, We will not be able to help you if you do not report damages at the time of delivery and note them on the freight slip with the freight company. 

Reporting Damages: 
To report damage and start a claim please do the following:
- Make sure to document the damage with the truck driver for the freight company.
- Take a picture of the visible damages
There are two different claims we have, #1) If you purchased the shipping damage insurance that is offered at the time of sale, then you have a warranty claim. #2) If you did not purchase the shipping damage insurance that was offered for $30 then you have a damage claim. 
A warranty Claim is reported from a customer to Q9 PowerSports USA directly and we file a warranty claim and send out the replacement part from one of our distribution warehouses to you. There is no cost for the OEM replacement part under warranty, but customers still pay for shipping on any warranty parts sent from one of the distribution warehouses. You do not have to deal with the freight company, but you still have to make sure that the freight company documents damages on the delivery ticket to prove damages from shipping, or your claim will be denied and we will not be able to help you.  
A damage claim is reported from the customer to the freight company directly and you file a claim with them to try to get a resolution which can take up to 4 months depending on the freight company. Use the tracking number and the information on the freight invoice that the driver leaves, as info for your order when contacting the freight company about the claim. It is Most important to make sure that the freight company documents damages on the delivery ticket to prove damages from shipping. 
- Determine if it is a damage claim for the freight company or a warranty claim for Q9 PowerSports USA
- If it is a warranty claim Send the picture and a statement via email to
 Q9 PowerSports USA at service@q9powersports.com 
- If it is a damage claim for the freight company then use the tracking number and contact information from the freight slip to start a claim with the freight company.
