How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size transporting canoes is a challenge. Canoes are usually transported on top of the vehicle. In order to achieve this you must use roof racks with special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks to make it stay still and secured during a long journey could be tricky. There is a simple tip that makes it achievable. Put some spongy material on the roof rack. The material will act as a slip resistant pad.

Kayaks are supposed to be secured on the top of the car in an inverted position by special stretchy belts with metal buckles. Use at least two belts. Moreover, don’t forget to take an additional strap with you – in case one of the belts gets damaged during transportation. When you ship a canoe using your car make sure the cargo isn’t too weighty for your car. It is extremely significant when you plan to transport more than one canoe. Before you start the car check again if every belt is used properly. Don’t pull the belts too tight though. They could damage the kayaks. On the way your freight shouldn’t relocate. If you hear any sound coming from the roof, pull over and rapidly examine the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling close to you.

Having kayaks on the roof should encourage every driver to drive safely and not too fast. In addition, don’t forget about pulling over from time to time to check the situation on the roof of your car. What is more, it is crucial to follow the road traffic regulations in your country regarding transporting a huge freight. In some places drivers are obliged to specially mark their cargo with material and stripes. Find out for any obligations according to local regulations. Do your research well before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you may notice, transporting canoes by yourself is not a piece of cake. Despite the fact that canoes are not heavy they are still large. This is the reason why the best way to handle the issue is to hire a shipping company.

Professionals have much more experience with untypical loads and use special equipment and vehicles on regular basis. The fastest way to find the right company for you is to list your item on Clicktrans.com. After listing your kayaks and providing important details, you will receive quotes from various haulers that specialize in shipping kayaks. You have a chance to compare prizes, work out the facts with couriers as well as feel confident that your special items will be delivered on time and wherever you want.

The cost of kayak transportation

The price of shipping kayaks depends on the quantity of the equipment, the weight and size of the load as well as, naturally, the miles to travel. For example shipping a kayak internationally from UK to Poland costs around £70-£100.
