How to transport a kayak?

Due to its untypical shape and size transporting canoes is a challenge. Kayaks are often shipped on the roof of the vehicle. To achieve this you must use roof racks with special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks to make it stay still as well as secured during a long-lasting travel may be tricky. There is an easy tip that makes it possible. Put some spongy fabric on the roof rack. The material will be a slip resistant pad.

Kayaks should be installed on the roof of the vehicle upside down by particular stretchy straps connected to metal buckles. Use at least two belts. Moreover, don’t forget to take an extra strap with you – in case one of the belts gets ripped during shipment. When you ship a canoe using your vehicle make sure the load isn’t too heavy for your car. It is extremely significant in case you want to ship more than one canoe. Before you start the car check one more time if every belt is installed correctly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They may damage the canoes. During the road your load shouldn’t move. If you catch any noise coming from the roof, pull over and rapidly examine the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling around you.

Having canoes on the roof should mobilize every driver to drive safely and not too fast. Also, don’t forget about pulling over from time to time to check the situation on the roof of your vehicle. Furthermore, it is crucial to follow the road traffic regulations in your region regarding transporting a large freight. In some countries drivers are obliged to specially assign their cargo with flags and stripes. Check for any responsibilities according to local law. Do your research carefully before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you see, transporting canoes by yourself is not an easy task. Despite the fact that canoes are not heavy they are still huge. This is the reason why the best way to handle the issue is to hire a courier.

Professionals are more experienced with untypical loads and use dedicated equipment or vehicles regularly. The fastest way to find the right service provider for your needs is to list your item on Clicktrans.com. After presenting your cargo and adding essential details, you will receive quotes from various transport companies that specialize in delivering canoes. You can compare costs, work out the details with couriers and make sure that your special items will be shipped on time and wherever you desire.

Prices for canoe transportation

The price of shipping canoes depends on the quantity of the equipment, the weight and size of the cargo as well as, of course, the miles to travel. For example transporting a canoe internationally from UK to Poland costs around £70-£100.
