How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size shipping kayaks is a challenge. Canoes are usually shipped on top of the car. To achieve this you must 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 tricky. There is a simple tip that makes it possible. Put some spongy fabric on the roof rack. The material will act as a slip resistant stuffing.

Canoes are supposed to be secured on the top of the vehicle upside down by particular stretchy straps with metal clasps. Use at least two belts. Also, don’t forget to take an additional belt with you – in case one of the belts gets ripped during transportation. When you ship a kayak using your car make sure the cargo isn’t too heavy for your car. It is very significant when you want to transport more than one kayak. Before you start the car make sure one more time if all the belts are used properly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They may damage the canoes. During the road your freight shouldn’t move. If you catch any sound coming from the roof, stop to rapidly check the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is at risk, but also people’s travelling around you.

Having canoes on the roof should encourage every driver to drive cautiously and slowly. In addition, don’t forget about pulling over regularly to overview the situation on the rooftop of your vehicle. Furthermore, it is crucial to obey the road traffic regulations in your country regarding transporting a huge freight. In some places drivers are obliged to specially assign their load with flags or stripes. Find out for any obligations according to local legislation. Do your research well before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you may notice, shipping canoes by yourself is not a piece of cake. Despite the fact that kayaks are quite light they are also quite large. This is the reason why the best way to handle the issue is to hire a shipping company.

Proffessional transport providers have much more experience with unique loads as well as use special equipment and vehicles on regular basis. The easiest way to find the right company for you is to list your item on Clicktrans.com. After presenting your cargo and adding important information, you will receive quotes from various transport companies that specialize in shipping kayaks. You can compare prizes, work out the facts with transport providers and make sure that your special cargo will be shipped on time and wherever you want.

The cost of kayak transportation

The cost of delivering kayaks depends on the amount of the equipment, the weight and size of the cargo as well as, of course, the miles to travel. For example transporting a canoe abroad from United Kingdom to Poland costs about £70-£100.
