Can I fit a roof box and roof bars to my vehicle?: We carry a huge range of roof bars and roof boxes that can fit to over 99% of vehicles including coupes, hatchbacks, saloons, estates, MPV's, and 4x4's. Please contact us for fitting conformation or see Thule.com, and check their vehicle fitting guide. If Thule manufacture roof bars for your vehicle then we can supply.
Do you fit / remove the hire equipment?: Yes we fit and remove all hire equipment at our Sunderland store.
Do you delivery or fit items at my house?: Sorry but no, we only fit and remove the equipment at our Sundeland store.
Will there be any damage to my vehicle?: In short no, we only use the very top of the range equipment (Thule, Karrite & Mont Blanc) which does not mark, scratch or damage your vehicle in any way, and once removed no one will know you have had the equipment fitted.
Will the equipment lock, are they secure?: All our roof boxes, roof bars and cycle carriers are key lockable and very secure.
Will I have to drive differently with a box on my vehicles roof?:
Do I have to book in advance?: Yes & No. We generally require you to pre book especailly at busy school holiday times to ensure we have the correct roof bars available for your vehicle but if it is a last minute thing we may still have the equipment available so please contact us and we will do our best to arrange your hire.
What is the procedure on the day of fitting?: On arrival at our Sunderland store we will complete any remaining paperwork/ payment. We will then begin to fit the hire equipment to your vehicle (takes approx 10 mins). You will then be fully shown how to use the equipment. Done. Enjoy your vacation.
