How to transport a kayak?

Because of its untypical shape and size shipping kayaks is a challenge. Canoes are usually shipped on top of the car. To achieve this you need to 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 travel may be difficult. There is a simple tip that makes it possible. Put some squashy material on the roof rack. The material will act as a slip resistant stuffing.

Kayaks are supposed to be secured on the top of the vehicle upside down by particular stretchy belts with metal clasps. Use at least 2 belts. Moreover, remember to grab 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 very important in case you want to ship more than one canoe. Before you start the engine make sure again if every belt is used correctly. Don’t pull the belts too tight though. They may demolish the kayaks. On the way your freight shouldn’t move. If you catch any sound coming from the roof, stop to quickly check the situation. Remember – not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling close to you.

Having canoes on the roof should encourage every driver to drive safely and not too fast. Also, remember to pull over from time to time to check the situation on the rooftop of your vehicle. Furthermore, it is important to obey the road traffic regulations in your country regarding transporting a huge load. In some places drivers are obliged to specially assign their load with flags and stripes. Check for any responsibilities according to local law. Do your research carefully before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you see, shipping 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 smartest way to deal with the issue is to engage a courier.

Proffessional transport providers have much more experience with unique cargo as well as use dedicated equipment or vehicles on regular basis.
