How to transport a kayak?

Because of its untypical shape and size shipping kayaks may be a challenge. Canoes are usually shipped on the roof of the car. To do this you need to use roof racks with 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 tip that makes it possible. Put some spongy textile on the roof rack. The material will be a slip resistant pad.

Canoes should be installed on the top of the car in an inverted position by special stretchy belts connected to metal clasps. Use at least two straps. Moreover, remember to grab an additional belt with you – in case one of the belts gets damaged during shipment. When you transport a kayak using your vehicle make sure the cargo isn’t too weighty for your vehicle. It is very important in case you plan to transport more than 1 kayak. Before you start the engine check one more time if all the belts are installed correctly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They could demolish the canoes. On the way your load isn’t supposed to relocate. If you catch any sound coming from the roof, stop and quickly check the situation. Remember – not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling around you.

Having canoes on the roof should encourage every driver to drive safely and not too fast. Also, remember about pulling over from time to time to check the situation on the roof of your car. What is more, it is important to follow the law in your country regarding shipping a large freight. In some countries drivers have to specially mark their cargo with flags or stripes. Find out for any obligations according to local regulations. Do your research well before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you see, transporting canoes by yourself is not an easy task. Despite the fact that kayaks are quite light they are still large. That is why the best way to deal with the problem is to engage a shipping company.
