Transporting Hired Paddleboards
When hiring them from my Inverness base, by default all hire boards will be packed deflated in their storage bag unless otherwise requested so ready to be loaded straight into your vehicle at the time of collection.
If you do have roof bars on your own vehicle, you can request your hire paddleboard be inflated for the collection so can be loaded straight onto your vehicle roof. This will save you the hassle of having to inflate and deflate the board during your hire period. You will be given a pump no matter to ensure you have the correct pressure for the weather and temperature conditions.
Alternately, you could book a paddleboard drop-off & collection if unable to transport paddleboards yourself.
