How to transport a kayak?

Due to its unordinary shape and size shipping kayaks may be a challenge. Kayaks are usually shipped on the roof of the car. In order 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 journey could be difficult. There is an easy solution that makes it achievable. Put some squashy material on the roof rack. The material will be a slip resistant stuffing.

Canoes are supposed to be installed on the top of the vehicle upside down by particular stretchy straps connected to metal buckles. Use at least two belts. Also, remember to grab an extra belt with you – on condition one of the belts gets damaged during transportation. When you transport a canoe using your vehicle make sure the cargo isn’t too weighty for your car. It is extremely significant when you plan to ship more than one kayak. Before you start the car check again if every belt is used correctly. Do not pull the belts too hard though. They may demolish the canoes. On the way your freight isn’t supposed to relocate. If you hear any noise coming from the roof, pull over and quickly check the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s driving close to you.

Having kayaks on the roof should encourage every driver to drive cautiously and slowly. In addition, don’t forget to pull over regularly to check the situation on the rooftop of your vehicle. What is more, it is crucial to follow the law in your region regarding transporting a huge load. In some countries drivers are obliged to specially assign their load with material or 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 by yourself is not an easy task. Despite the fact that canoes are quite light they are still large. That is why the best way to handle the issue is to hire a courier.

Professionals have much more experience with unique cargo and use dedicated equipment or vehicles on regular basis. The fastest way to find the right service provider for your needs is listing your cargo via Clicktrans.com.
