How to transport a kayak?

Because of its untypical shape and size transporting canoes may be a challenge. Canoes are often transported 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 material on the roof rack. It will act as a slip resistant stuffing.

Kayaks are supposed to be secured on the roof of the vehicle upside down by particular stretchy belts with metal clasps. Use at least 2 belts. Also, don’t forget to take an additional belt with you – in case one of the belts gets ripped during shipment. When you transport a kayak using your car make sure the load isn’t too heavy for your vehicle. It is very important in case you want to ship more than 1 kayak. Before you start the engine check one more time if all the belts are used correctly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They could destroy the kayaks. On the way your load isn’t supposed to move. If you catch any noise 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 driving close to you.

Having kayaks on the roof should mobilize the driver to drive cautiously and slowly. Also, don’t forget to pull over regularly to check the situation on the rooftop of your vehicle. What is more, it is crucial to obey the law in your region regarding shipping a large freight. In some places drivers have to specially mark their cargo with flags or stripes. Check for any responsibilities according to local legislation. Do your research well before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you see, shipping kayaks by yourself is not an easy task. Even though the kayaks are not heavy they are still huge. That is why the smartest way to deal with the issue is to hire a courier.

Professionals have much more experience with untypical loads and use dedicated equipment and vehicles regularly. The easiest way to find the right service provider for you is listing your cargo via Clicktrans.com. After presenting your cargo and providing essential information, you will receive quotes from various transport providers that specialize in delivering kayaks. You have a chance to compare costs, work out the facts with couriers as well as feel confident that your special cargo will be delivered on time and wherever you want.

Prices for canoe transportation
