How Do We Ship Our Large Watersports Gear?

Great question! Shipment of large canoes, kayaks and stand up paddleboards can be tricky. At Sherper's, our goal is to make sure your item arrives to you safely and without damage. All standard canoes, kayaks and SUPs are double wrapped in bubble wrap, with a third protective plastic wrap layer for extra durability during transit. Any specialty watercraft items, such as fiberglass kayaks or kevlar Wenonah canoes, are boxed in crates for extreme durability during transit. 

We ship our boats with Estes-Express LTL shipping services. For home deliveries, the nearest local terminal to your home will call to arrange a scheduled drop off time once the boat has arrived in your area. Please note: An adult must be present to sign for the delivery and to inspect the item upon arrival. 

Prefer to pick up your boat? No problem! We can have your item shipped to the nearest local Estes-Express terminal, and customers may drive there to pick up their item. Or, if you live near one of our stores, we can offer free in-store pick up as well! 

We are always happy to answer any questions regarding order shipments. You can reach our staff at 414-425-6888, or email customerservice@sherpers.com
