shipping a Kayak in Europe

Post by Fergal_D » Fri Dec 07, 2018 3:16 pm

Hello All,
I am looking for advice for shipping a plastic Sea Kayak from Ireland to Italy. Has anyone here had experience with shipping a Kayak from Ireland to anywhere in Europe and who you have you used for this work.
Any advice appreciated
Thank you

Hi Fergal, I don't have any direct experience of sending kayaks to Italy myself but I work in the shipping industry
best is likely to be a road trailer service from Ireland

a few possibilities

http://www.moranfreight.com/services/in ... nd-europe/
https://halesfreight.com/freight-forwar ... n-freight/

or maybe via airfreight

best to pack it well - bubble wrap / cardboard
insure it too.
