How to transport a kayak?

Due to its untypical shape and size transporting kayaks is a challenge. Canoes are often shipped on top of the vehicle. To achieve this you must use roof racks and special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks to make it stay still as well as secured during a long travel could be tricky. There is an easy solution that makes it possible. Put some spongy textile on the roof rack. It will be a slip resistant pad.

Canoes are supposed to be installed on the roof of the car upside down by special stretchy straps with metal buckles. Use at least 2 straps. Also, don’t forget to take an extra belt with you – in case one of the belts gets damaged during shipment. When you transport a canoe using your vehicle make sure the cargo isn’t too weighty for your vehicle. It is extremely significant in case you want to ship more than one canoe. Before you start the engine check again if every belt is installed properly. Do not pull the belts too tight though. They may damage the kayaks. During the road your freight shouldn’t relocate. If you hear any noise coming from the roof, pull over and rapidly check the situation. Remember – not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s driving around you.

Having kayaks on the roof ought to encourage every driver to drive cautiously and slowly. Also, remember about pulling over regularly to overview the situation on the roof of your vehicle. What is more, it is crucial to follow the road traffic regulations in your region regarding transporting a huge freight. In some places drivers have to specially assign their cargo with flags or stripes. Find out if you have any obligations according to local legislation. Do your research carefully before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you see, transporting kayaks on your own is not a piece of cake. Even though the kayaks are quite light they are also quite huge. This is the reason why the best way to handle the problem is to hire a courier.
