How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size shipping kayaks is a challenge. Kayaks are usually transported on top of the vehicle. To achieve this you need to 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 may be tricky. There is a simple solution that makes it achievable. Put some squashy fabric on the roof rack. The material will be a slip resistant pad.

Kayaks are supposed to be installed on the roof of the car in an inverted position by special stretchy belts connected to metal clasps. Use at least 2 straps. Also, don’t forget to take an extra strap with you – in case one of the belts gets ripped during shipment. When you transport a canoe using your vehicle make sure the cargo isn’t too heavy for your car. It is very significant when you want to transport more than 1 kayak. Before you start the car make sure one more time if all the belts are used correctly. Do not pull the belts too tight though. They may demolish the kayaks. On the way your load shouldn’t relocate. If you catch any sound 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 driving around you.

Having canoes on the roof should mobilize the driver to drive safely and slowly. In addition, don’t forget about pulling over regularly to check the situation on the roof of your car. What is more, it is important to follow the law in your country regarding transporting a huge load. In some places drivers have to specially mark their load with material and stripes. Check if you have any responsibilities according to local law. Do your research carefully before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you see, shipping canoes by yourself is not a piece of cake. Despite the fact that kayaks are quite light they are also quite large. That is why the smartest way to handle the problem is to hire a courier.

Professionals are more experienced with unique cargo and use dedicated equipment or vehicles on regular basis. The fastest way to find the right company for your needs is to list your item on Clicktrans.com. After listing your kayaks and adding essential information, you will receive quotes from couple transport providers that specialize in delivering kayaks. You have a chance to compare costs, establish the facts with transport providers as well as make sure that your special cargo will be shipped on time and wherever you desire.

Prices for kayak shipping

The price of delivering kayaks depends on the quantity of the equipment, the weight and size of the cargo and, naturally, the miles to travel. For example shipping a canoe abroad from United Kingdom to Poland costs about £70-£100.
