How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size transporting canoes is a challenge. Kayaks are usually 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 to make it stay still and secured during a long-lasting journey may be tricky. There is an easy tip that makes it possible. Put some squashy material on the roof rack. The material will act as a slip resistant pad.

Kayaks should be secured on the roof of the vehicle upside down by particular stretchy belts connected to metal clasps. Use at least two belts. Also, remember to grab an extra strap with you – on condition one of the belts gets damaged during shipment. When you ship a canoe using your car make sure the cargo isn’t too heavy for your vehicle. It is extremely important in case you plan to transport more than one kayak. Before you start the car make sure again if all the belts are used correctly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They could destroy the canoes. During the road your load isn’t supposed to move. If you hear any noise coming from the roof, stop and quickly check the situation. Remember – not only your safety is at risk, but also people’s driving close to you.

Having kayaks on the roof should mobilize every driver to drive cautiously and slowly. In addition, remember about pulling over from time to time to overview the situation on the rooftop of your vehicle. What is more, it is crucial to follow the law in your country regarding shipping a huge load. In some countries drivers have to specially assign their cargo with material and stripes. Check for any obligations according to local regulations. Do your research well before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with couriers

As you may notice, transporting canoes by yourself is not an easy task. Despite the fact that kayaks are quite light they are also quite large. That is why the smartest way to deal with the issue is to engage a courier.

Proffessional transport providers have much more experience with untypical cargo as well as use special equipment or vehicles on regular basis.
