How to transport a kayak?

Due to its unordinary shape and size transporting canoes is a challenge. Kayaks are often shipped on top of the car. To do this you must use roof racks and special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks in order for it to stay still as well as secured during a long journey may be difficult. There is a simple tip that makes it possible. Put some spongy fabric on the roof rack. The material will act as a slip resistant stuffing.

Kayaks are supposed to be secured on the roof of the vehicle upside down by special stretchy straps with metal clasps. Use at least 2 straps. Also, remember to take an extra belt with you – in case one of the belts gets damaged during shipment. When you ship a kayak using your vehicle make sure the cargo isn’t too weighty for your vehicle. It is extremely important in case you plan to transport more than one kayak. Before you start the car make sure again if every belt is used properly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They could damage the kayaks. On the way your freight shouldn’t relocate. If you hear any noise coming from the roof, stop to quickly check the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling around you.

Having kayaks on the roof should mobilize every driver to drive safely and slowly. Also, remember about pulling over from time to time to overview the situation on the roof of your car. What is more, it is important to obey the road traffic regulations in your region regarding transporting a large freight. In some countries drivers have to specially assign their cargo with material and stripes. Find out for any obligations according to local regulations. Do your research carefully before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you see, shipping canoes on your own is not a piece of cake. Despite the fact that canoes are not heavy they are still huge. This is the reason why the smartest way to deal with the issue is to hire a courier.

Proffessional transport providers have much more experience with unique loads as well as use dedicated equipment or vehicles regularly.
