How to transport a kayak?

Due to its unordinary shape and size transporting canoes is a challenge. Kayaks are usually transported on the roof of the vehicle. In order 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 and secured during a long-lasting travel may be difficult. There is a simple solution that makes it achievable. Put some spongy fabric on the roof rack. It will be a slip resistant stuffing.

Canoes should be secured on the roof of the car upside down by particular stretchy straps connected to metal buckles. Use at least two straps. Moreover, remember to take an extra belt with you – on condition one of the belts gets ripped during shipment. When you ship a canoe using your vehicle make sure the cargo isn’t too weighty for your car. It is extremely significant when you plan to transport more than one kayak. Before you start the engine check again if all the belts are used properly. Do not pull the belts too hard though. They could damage the kayaks. During the road your freight shouldn’t move. If you hear any sound coming from the roof, stop and quickly examine 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 mobilize every driver to drive safely and slowly. Also, don’t forget about pulling over from time to time to overview the situation on the roof of your vehicle. What is more, it is important to follow the law in your country regarding transporting a large freight. In some countries drivers are obliged to specially assign their load with material and stripes. Check if you have any responsibilities according to local law. Do your research well before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you see, transporting kayaks on your own is not a piece of cake. Even though the canoes are quite light they are still large. This is the reason why the best way to handle the issue is to hire a courier.
