How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size transporting kayaks may be a challenge. Canoes are usually shipped on top of the car. To achieve this you must 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 journey could be tricky. There is a simple solution that makes it achievable. Put some spongy material on the roof rack. The material will be a slip resistant pad.

Kayaks should be installed on the top of the vehicle upside down by particular stretchy straps connected to metal buckles. Use at least 2 straps. Moreover, don’t forget to grab an additional strap with you – in case one of the belts gets damaged during transportation. When you ship a canoe using your car make sure the cargo isn’t too weighty for your vehicle. 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 installed correctly. Do not pull the belts too tight though. They may destroy the kayaks. During the road your freight shouldn’t move. If you hear any sound coming from the roof, stop and quickly check the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling close to you.

Having kayaks on the roof should mobilize the driver to drive cautiously and not too fast. Also, don’t forget to pull over from time to time to overview the situation on the roof of your vehicle. Furthermore, it is crucial to obey the road traffic regulations in your region regarding transporting a large load. In some places drivers have to specially mark their cargo with flags and stripes. Check if you have any responsibilities according to local legislation. Do your research well before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you may notice, shipping canoes on your own is not a piece of cake. Even though the kayaks are not heavy they are also quite huge. That is why the best way to handle the problem is to hire a shipping company.

Professionals are more experienced with untypical loads and use special equipment and vehicles on regular basis. The fastest way to find the right service provider for you is listing your cargo via Clicktrans.com. After listing your load and adding essential details, you will get quotes from various transport companies that specialize in shipping kayaks.

Prices for kayak transportation

The price of delivering canoes depends on the quantity of the equipment, the weight and size of the cargo as well as, naturally, the distance to travel. For example shipping a kayak abroad from United Kingdom to Poland costs around £70-£100.
