How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size shipping kayaks may be a challenge. Canoes are usually transported on the roof of the vehicle. To achieve this you must use roof racks with special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks in order for it to stay still as well as secured during a long travel could be difficult. There is a simple tip that makes it possible. Put some squashy textile on the roof rack. The material will be a slip resistant stuffing.

Canoes should be secured on the top of the vehicle in an inverted position by particular stretchy straps with metal buckles. Use at least two belts. Also, remember to take an additional belt with you – in case one of the belts gets ripped during shipment. When you ship a kayak using your car make sure the load isn’t too heavy for your vehicle. It is extremely significant when you plan to transport more than 1 kayak. Before you start the car make sure one more time if all the belts are used properly. Do not pull the belts too tight though. They may damage the canoes. On the way your load isn’t supposed to move. If you catch any sound coming from the roof, stop and quickly examine the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s driving around you.

Having kayaks on the roof should mobilize the driver to drive safely and slowly. In addition, don’t forget to pull over regularly to overview the situation on the rooftop of your car. What is more, it is important to obey the law in your region regarding transporting a large load. In some places drivers are obliged to specially mark their load with material or stripes. Check for any responsibilities according to local law. Do your research well before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you may notice, transporting canoes on your own is not an easy task. Even though the canoes are quite light they are still large. That is why the best way to handle the issue is to hire a shipping company.

Proffessional transport providers are more experienced with untypical cargo as well as use dedicated equipment or vehicles on regular basis. The fastest way to find the right service provider for you is listing your item via Clicktrans.com.
