How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size transporting kayaks may be a challenge. Canoes are often shipped on top of the car. To achieve 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 travel may be tricky. There is a simple tip that makes it achievable. Put some squashy fabric on the roof rack. It will be a slip resistant pad.

Canoes should be secured on the top of the vehicle upside down by special stretchy straps with metal clasps. Use at least two straps. Also, don’t forget to grab an additional belt with you – on condition one of the belts gets ripped during transportation. When you ship a canoe using your vehicle make sure the cargo isn’t too weighty for your car. It is extremely important when you want to transport more than 1 canoe. Before you start the car make sure one more time if every belt is used correctly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They may demolish the kayaks. On the way your freight shouldn’t move. If you hear any noise coming from the roof, pull over to quickly check the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is at risk, but also people’s travelling around you.

Having kayaks on the roof ought to encourage the driver to drive cautiously and slowly. Also, don’t forget to pull over regularly to check the situation on the rooftop of your car. What is more, it is crucial to obey the law in your region regarding shipping a large load. In some places drivers have to specially assign their cargo with material and stripes. Check if you have any obligations according to local regulations. Do your research well before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you may notice, shipping kayaks on your own is not a piece of cake. Despite the fact that canoes are quite light they are also quite large. This is the reason why the smartest way to handle the issue is to hire a courier.

Professionals are more experienced with untypical loads as well as use special equipment or vehicles on regular basis.
