How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size transporting canoes is a challenge. Canoes are often shipped on top 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 journey may be tricky. There is a simple tip that makes it achievable. Put some spongy textile on the roof rack. The material will act as a slip resistant pad.

Canoes are supposed to be installed on the top of the vehicle in an inverted position by particular stretchy straps with metal clasps. Use at least two straps. Also, remember to take an extra strap with you – on condition one of the belts gets damaged during shipment. When you transport a kayak using your vehicle make sure the load isn’t too heavy for your car. It is very important when you want to transport more than one kayak. Before you start the engine check again if all the belts are installed correctly. Don’t pull the belts too tight though. They may damage the canoes. During the road your freight shouldn’t move. If you catch any noise coming from the roof, stop and quickly check the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is at risk, but also people’s travelling close to you.

Having kayaks on the roof should mobilize every driver to drive safely and slowly. In addition, don’t forget about pulling over from time to time to overview the situation on the rooftop of your vehicle. What is more, it is crucial to follow the law in your region regarding transporting a large freight. In some places drivers are obliged to specially mark their cargo with flags and stripes. Find out for any obligations according to local law. Do your research well before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you see, shipping kayaks on your own is not a piece of cake. Even though the canoes are quite light they are also quite large. This is the reason why the smartest way to deal with the issue is to hire a shipping company.

Professionals are more experienced with untypical cargo and use special equipment and vehicles on regular basis. The fastest way to find the right company for your needs is to list your cargo via Clicktrans.com. After presenting your load and adding important details, you will get quotes from various transport providers that specialize in shipping canoes. You have a chance to compare prizes, work out the details with transport providers as well as feel confident that your special items will be shipped on time and wherever you desire.

Prices for canoe transportation
