How to transport a kayak?

Due to its unordinary shape and size transporting kayaks may be a challenge. Kayaks are usually shipped on the roof of the vehicle. In order to achieve this you need to use roof racks and special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks to make it stay still and secured during a long-lasting journey could be difficult. There is an easy solution that makes it possible. Put some squashy fabric on the roof rack. The material will be a slip resistant stuffing.

Canoes are supposed to be secured on the top of the vehicle upside down by special stretchy straps connected to metal buckles. Use at least two belts. Moreover, don’t forget to take an extra belt with you – on condition one of the belts gets damaged during shipment. When you ship a canoe using your car make sure the cargo isn’t too weighty for your vehicle. It is extremely significant when you plan to transport more than 1 canoe. Before you start the engine make sure again if every belt is used correctly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They may demolish the canoes. During the road your freight isn’t supposed to move. If you hear any sound coming from the roof, pull over and quickly examine the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling close to you.

Having kayaks on the roof ought to mobilize every driver to drive cautiously and not too fast. Also, remember to pull over from time to time to check the situation on the roof of your car. Furthermore, it is important to follow the road traffic regulations in your country regarding transporting a large freight. In some countries drivers have to specially assign their load with flags and stripes. Check if you have any responsibilities according to local regulations. Do your research well before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you may notice, transporting canoes on your own is not a piece of cake. Despite the fact that kayaks are not heavy they are still huge. That is why the smartest way to handle the problem is to hire a shipping company.

Proffessional transport providers are more experienced with unique cargo as well as use special equipment or vehicles regularly. The easiest way to find the right service provider for your needs is to list your item via Clicktrans.com. After listing your kayaks and adding essential information, you will receive quotes from various haulers that specialize in shipping canoes. You can compare prizes, establish the facts with couriers and feel confident that your special cargo will be shipped on time and wherever you want.
