How to transport a kayak?

Because of its untypical shape and size shipping canoes is a challenge. Kayaks are often shipped on top of the vehicle. To achieve this you must use roof racks with special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks in order for it to stay still and secured during a long-lasting travel could be difficult. There is a simple solution that makes it achievable. Put some squashy textile on the roof rack. It will act as a slip resistant stuffing.

Canoes are supposed to be installed on the top of the car upside down by particular stretchy straps connected to metal buckles. Use at least 2 belts. Also, don’t forget to take an additional strap with you – in case one of the belts gets ripped during transportation. When you transport a canoe using your car make sure the cargo isn’t too heavy for your car. It is very important in case you plan to transport more than 1 canoe. Before you start the engine make sure one more time if all the belts are used properly. Don’t pull the belts too tight though. They may destroy the kayaks. During the road your load shouldn’t relocate. If you hear any noise coming from the roof, pull over to quickly examine the situation. Remember – not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling close to you.

Having kayaks on the roof ought to mobilize every driver to drive safely and not too fast. Also, don’t forget to pull over regularly to check the situation on the rooftop of your vehicle. Furthermore, it is crucial to follow the law in your region regarding shipping a huge load. In some places drivers are obliged to specially assign their cargo with material or stripes. Find out for any obligations according to local law. Do your research well before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you may notice, shipping canoes by yourself is not a piece of cake. Even though the canoes are quite light they are also quite huge. That is why the smartest way to handle the problem is to engage a shipping company.

Professionals have much more experience with unique loads as well as use dedicated equipment and vehicles regularly. The easiest way to find the right company for you is to list your item on Clicktrans.com.
