How to transport a kayak?

Due to its untypical shape and size shipping kayaks may be a challenge. Canoes are often shipped on top of the car. In order to do this you need to 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 tricky. There is a simple solution that makes it achievable. Put some spongy textile on the roof rack. The material will act as a slip resistant pad.

Kayaks should be secured on the roof of the vehicle upside down by special stretchy belts with metal clasps. Use at least two straps. Also, remember to take an additional strap with you – in case one of the belts gets ripped during shipment. When you transport a kayak using your vehicle make sure the load isn’t too weighty for your car. It is extremely significant when you want to transport more than 1 canoe. Before you start the engine make sure again if all the belts are installed correctly. Do not pull the belts too hard though. They could damage the kayaks. 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 travelling around you.

Having kayaks on the roof should encourage the driver to drive cautiously and slowly. In addition, remember to pull over regularly to overview 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 huge freight. In some places drivers are obliged to specially mark their cargo with flags and stripes. Find out if you have any obligations according to local regulations. Do your research well before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you may notice, shipping canoes on your own is not an easy task. Despite the fact that kayaks are quite light they are also quite huge. That is why the best way to deal with the issue is to engage a shipping company.

Proffessional transport providers are more experienced with untypical cargo and use dedicated equipment or vehicles on regular basis. The fastest way to find the right company for you is to list your cargo on Clicktrans.com.
