How to transport a kayak?

Due to its unordinary shape and size shipping canoes may be a challenge. Kayaks are usually shipped on the roof 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-lasting journey could be difficult. There is an easy solution that makes it possible. Put some spongy textile on the roof rack. It will be a slip resistant stuffing.

Kayaks are supposed to be secured on the roof of the vehicle in an inverted position by special stretchy belts with metal clasps. Use at least 2 straps. Moreover, remember to take an extra strap with you – on condition one of the belts gets damaged during transportation. When you ship a canoe using your vehicle make sure the load isn’t too heavy for your car. It is very important in case you want to transport more than 1 canoe. Before you start the car make sure one more time if all the belts are installed correctly. Do not pull the belts too hard though. They may damage the kayaks. On the way your load shouldn’t relocate. If you catch any sound coming from the roof, pull over to rapidly check the situation. Remember – not only your safety is at risk, but also people’s travelling close to you.

Having canoes on the roof ought to encourage every driver to drive cautiously and not too fast. In addition, remember about pulling over regularly to overview the situation on the roof of your vehicle. What is more, it is crucial to obey the road traffic regulations in your region regarding transporting a large freight. In some places drivers are obliged to specially assign their cargo with material or stripes. Check for any obligations according to local legislation. Do your research carefully before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you may notice, shipping kayaks on your own is not a piece of cake. Even though the canoes are quite light they are still large. That is why the best way to handle the issue is to engage a shipping company.
