For small items that need to be shipped we use USPS. We charge a fixed shipping rate to keep things simple (which in most cases does not cover our actual costs).
For heavy or bulky items such as KayakPro stands, V-Bars, Boat stands, Paddles or Epic boat socks we use USPS, FedEX and UPS and charge a fixed shipping rate (even on orders that meet the $200 free freight threshold) as we are just unable to absorb the extra freight with the huge increase in shipping costs.
Surfski, Outrigger and Sea Kayak Delivery and Pick-Up;
For delivery of your new surfski, outrigger canoe or sea kayak we will do our best to accommodate you by meeting you in route when we are traveling in the area (rare exceptions for personal delivery might be made for extra charges). See the Paddle Dynamics Event Calendar 2023 for routing for a 2023 delivery.
Shipping boats: For shipping if not on our route we do recommend and refer several private shipping companies. They professionally haul high performance watercraft on special trailers.
For boat pick up at our Eastern TN Warehouse you can schedule a time to meet with no pick-up or delivery fees and we can also head to a nearby lake for a free lesson if desired.
For Upper Midwest and Southern US pick-up you can schedule a pick up for a nominal fee of $75 (payment will need to made in cash to warehouse managers Brad Rex and Andy Nevitt). This fee covers the warehouse manager meeting you at the storage facility, inspecting your boat and its parts, going over how to unpack, rig and repack your new boat as well as helping to make sure you have adequate racking for transport.
We are an insured carrier so you can trust us with your boat transport.
