How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size shipping kayaks may be a challenge. Kayaks are usually transported on top of the car. In order to do 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 journey could 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.

Canoes are supposed to be installed on the roof of the car upside down by special stretchy straps with metal buckles. Use at least two belts. Moreover, don’t forget to grab an additional belt with you – in case one of the belts gets ripped during transportation. When you ship a kayak using your vehicle make sure the cargo isn’t too heavy for your car. It is very important in case you want to ship more than one kayak. Before you start the car check again if all the belts are installed correctly. Do not pull the belts too hard though. They may demolish the kayaks. On the way your freight isn’t supposed to move. If you hear any sound coming from the roof, pull over to rapidly examine the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is at risk, but also people’s travelling close to you.

Having canoes on the roof ought to mobilize the driver to drive cautiously and not too fast. In addition, don’t forget to pull over regularly to check the situation on the roof of your vehicle. Furthermore, it is important to obey the law in your region regarding transporting a huge load. In some countries drivers have to specially assign their cargo with material and stripes. Check if you have any obligations according to local regulations. Do your research well before you hit the road.
