Shipping information for Canoes, Kayaks, & Stand-Up-Paddleboards (SUPs)
Our goal is for you to receive your canoe, kayak, or SUP board in the same exact condition that it left Rutabaga. Freight companies don't typically make this easy for us, or you.
KAS Transport is our easiest and best solution to this. Steve and Kathy operate a wonderful boat transport service. Under this option, you may touch base with KAS and get a quote. After that, we can discuss and make your boat purchase over the phone. Once that is set, you can work with KAS for your shipping options. They will then contact us and pick up the boat on the set date. It's that easy. You can find their information below:
Beyond that, we can ship polyethylene and ABS kayaks, canoes, or SUP boards. Sorry we do not ship canoes or boats made of composite material (i.e. fiberglass, Kevlar, Aramide, TuffStuff, carbon) through freight companies. Our suggestion for these types of boats is to use the services of KAS Transport. For our available freight services, rates are generally as follows (however, please call us first to get a more accurate quote for the product you wish to purchase):
- Plastic Kayak up to 12ft OR Stand-Up Paddleboard: $150.00
- Any product over 12ft & Select Fishing Kayaks: $250.00
- Every Vessel Over 90 LBS: $350.00
