How to transport a kayak?

Due to its untypical shape and size shipping canoes is a challenge. Kayaks are usually shipped on the roof of the car. 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 journey may be difficult. There is an easy tip that makes it achievable. 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 top of the car in an inverted position by special stretchy belts with metal buckles. Use at least two straps. Moreover, remember to grab an extra strap with you – on condition one of the belts gets ripped during transportation. When you transport a kayak using your car make sure the load isn’t too heavy for your car. It is very significant when you plan to transport more than 1 canoe. Before you start the engine check one more time if all the belts are installed properly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They may destroy the kayaks. On the way your freight isn’t supposed to move. If you hear any noise coming from the roof, pull over and rapidly examine the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is at risk, but also people’s travelling close to you.

Having canoes on the roof should mobilize the driver to drive cautiously and not too fast. Also, remember to pull over regularly to check the situation on the rooftop 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 places drivers are obliged to specially assign their load with flags or stripes. Check if you have any obligations according to local law. Do your research well before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you may notice, shipping canoes on your own is not an easy task. Despite the fact that canoes are quite light they are still huge. This is the reason why the best way to handle the problem is to hire a shipping company.

Proffessional transport providers have much more experience with unique cargo and use dedicated equipment and vehicles on regular basis. The easiest way to find the right company for your needs is to list your cargo via Clicktrans.com.

You can compare costs, work out the facts with transport providers and make sure that your special cargo will be shipped on time and wherever you want.

The cost of canoe shipping

The price of shipping canoes depends on the amount of the equipment, the weight and size of the load and, of course, the miles to travel. For example transporting a kayak internationally from United Kingdom to Poland costs around £70-£100.
