How to transport a kayak?

Because of its untypical shape and size transporting canoes may be a challenge. Canoes are often shipped on top of the car. To achieve this you need to use roof racks and special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks to make it stay still as well as secured during a long travel may be difficult. There is a simple solution that makes it possible. Put some spongy material 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 special stretchy belts with metal buckles. Use at least two belts. Moreover, don’t forget to grab an additional belt with you – in case one of the belts gets damaged during transportation. When you transport a canoe using your car make sure the load isn’t too weighty for your car. It is extremely important when you plan to ship more than one kayak. Before you start the car make sure one more time if all the belts are installed properly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They could demolish the canoes. On the way your load isn’t supposed to move. If you catch any noise coming from the roof, pull over to quickly check the situation. Remember – not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling around you.

Having canoes on the roof should encourage every driver to drive safely and slowly. Also, don’t forget about pulling over from time to time to overview the situation on the rooftop of your car. Furthermore, it is important to follow the road traffic regulations in your country regarding transporting a huge load. In some places drivers are obliged to specially assign their cargo with flags and stripes. Check if you have any responsibilities according to local law. Do your research carefully before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you see, transporting kayaks on your own is not a piece of cake. Despite the fact that canoes are not heavy they are also quite large. That is why the smartest way to handle the problem is to engage a shipping company.

Proffessional transport providers have much more experience with unique cargo as well as use special equipment and vehicles on regular basis. The fastest way to find the right service provider for you is to list your item via Clicktrans.com. After listing your cargo and providing important information, you will get quotes from couple haulers that specialize in shipping canoes. You can compare prizes, establish the details with couriers as well as feel confident that your special items will be delivered on time and wherever you desire.

The cost of canoe transportation

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