How to transport a kayak?

Because of its unordinary shape and size transporting canoes may be a challenge. Canoes are often shipped on the roof of the vehicle. To do this you need to use roof racks with special roof rack towers. Placing a canoe on roof racks in order for it to stay still as well as secured during a long-lasting travel may be tricky. There is an easy solution that makes it possible. Put some spongy textile on the roof rack. The material will act as a slip resistant stuffing.

Canoes are supposed to be installed on the top of the car in an inverted position by special stretchy belts connected to metal buckles. Use at least two belts. Moreover, don’t forget to grab an additional belt with you – on condition 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 when you plan to ship more than 1 kayak. Before you start the car make sure one more time if every belt is used correctly. Don’t pull the belts too hard though. They could damage the kayaks. During the road your load shouldn’t relocate. If you hear any sound coming from the roof, stop to rapidly check the situation. Have in mind that not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s driving around you.

Having kayaks on the roof ought to mobilize the driver to drive cautiously and not too fast. Also, don’t forget about pulling over from time to time to check the situation on the rooftop of your vehicle. What is more, it is important to follow the law in your country regarding transporting a large load. In some countries drivers are obliged to specially mark their cargo with material or stripes. Check if you have any obligations according to local legislation. Do your research well before you hit the road. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you may notice, transporting canoes on your own is not an easy task. Despite the fact that kayaks are not heavy they are still huge. That is why the best way to deal with the problem is to engage a courier.
