How to transport a kayak?

Due to its untypical shape and size transporting canoes is a challenge. Kayaks are often shipped on the roof of the vehicle. In order to do this you must use roof racks with special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks in order for it to stay still and secured during a long-lasting travel may be tricky. There is an easy tip that makes it possible. Put some squashy fabric on the roof rack. The material will be a slip resistant pad.

Kayaks are supposed to be secured on the roof of the vehicle in an inverted position by special stretchy belts with metal buckles. Use at least 2 straps. Moreover, remember to grab an extra strap with you – on condition one of the belts gets ripped during shipment. When you transport a canoe using your vehicle make sure the cargo isn’t too weighty for your car. It is very important in case you want to ship more than 1 kayak. Before you start the engine check again if all the belts are used properly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They could destroy the canoes. On the way your freight isn’t supposed to move. If you hear any noise coming from the roof, pull over to quickly examine the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s driving close to you.

Having canoes on the roof ought to mobilize the driver to drive safely and slowly. Also, don’t forget to pull over from time to time to check the situation on the roof of your car. Furthermore, it is important to obey the law in your country regarding transporting a huge freight. In some countries drivers are obliged to specially mark their load with flags or stripes. Find out for any obligations according to local legislation. Do your research well before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you may notice, shipping kayaks on your own is not a piece of cake. Despite the fact that canoes are quite light they are also quite huge. That is why the best way to handle the issue is to engage a courier.
