How to transport a kayak?

Due to its untypical shape and size shipping canoes may be a challenge. Canoes are often transported on top of the car. In order to achieve this you need to 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-lasting journey may be tricky. There is an easy tip that makes it achievable. Put some squashy material on the roof rack. The material will act as a slip resistant stuffing.

Kayaks should be secured on the roof of the car upside down by special stretchy belts with metal buckles. Use at least two straps. Also, remember to take an extra belt with you – in case one of the belts gets damaged during transportation. When you ship a canoe using your vehicle make sure the load isn’t too heavy for your vehicle. It is very important in case you want to transport more than one canoe. Before you start the engine make sure one more time if every belt is installed properly. Do not pull the belts too hard though. They could demolish the canoes. During the road your freight shouldn’t relocate. If you catch any sound coming from the roof, pull over to quickly check the situation. Remember – not only your safety is on the line, but also people’s travelling around you.

Having canoes on the roof ought to mobilize the driver to drive safely and slowly. Also, don’t forget about pulling over from time to time to overview the situation on the rooftop of your vehicle. What is more, it is important to follow the road traffic regulations in your region regarding transporting a huge load. In some countries drivers have to specially mark their load with flags or stripes. Find out for any obligations according to local legislation. Do your research well before you start the journey. 

Cooperation with transport providers

As you may notice, shipping kayaks by yourself is not a piece of cake. Even though the canoes are not heavy they are also quite large. That is why the smartest way to deal with the issue is to hire a shipping company.
