How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size transporting canoes is a challenge. Kayaks are often shipped on the roof of the vehicle. In order to do this you need to 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-lasting travel may be difficult. There is a simple solution that makes it achievable. Put some spongy textile on the roof rack. It will be a slip resistant pad.

Kayaks are supposed to be secured on the top of the car upside down by special stretchy belts connected to metal clasps. Use at least 2 straps. Moreover, don’t forget to grab an extra strap with you – in case one of the belts gets ripped during shipment. When you ship a kayak using your car make sure the cargo isn’t too heavy for your car. It is extremely important in case you plan to transport more than one kayak. Before you start the engine make sure again if every belt is installed correctly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They could damage the canoes. During the road your freight isn’t supposed to relocate. If you catch any noise coming from the roof, pull over to rapidly check the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is at risk, but also people’s driving close to you.

Having kayaks on the roof ought to mobilize every driver to drive safely and not too fast. Also, remember about pulling over regularly to check the situation on the roof of your vehicle. Furthermore, it is crucial to obey the law in your country regarding transporting a large load. In some places drivers are obliged to specially mark their load with material and stripes. Find out if you have any responsibilities according to local law. Do your research carefully before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you see, transporting kayaks by yourself is not an easy task. Even though the canoes are quite light they are still huge. This is the reason why the smartest way to deal with the problem is to engage a shipping company.
