Roof Boxes: Welcome to our roofbox pages
We have the biggest range of roof boxes in the UK, for sure, representing almost all the major worldwide brands. There are dozens of boxes, at prices ranging from approximately £100 to £750, and a range of outstanding “package deals” where we provide locking roof bars and our favourite roof boxes, all at massively discounted prices. We’d really appreciate your business!
Family boxes include Medium Long Medium Wide boxes and Long Medium Wide boxes.
How to decide
So how do you decide which roof box to buy? It's easy! Decide which shape to go for, then look at quality, price, features, and style. Take note of our comments and star ratings.
Our 90 day exchange scheme allows you the opportunity of using a roof box and then switching for another if, on reflection, the first one is not right for you; we’ll pick up the return freight costs. A roof box is a substantial purchase, both in its size and in its cost, so we aim to remove the risk of buying the wrong one. Our bottom line is that we don't want to leave you with a box you're not happy with. See our Terms & Conditions for details.
Deciding which roof box to buy depends more than anything else on what shape of box you want. The shape you go for should depend on whether you need to leave space on the roof bars for other items (typically bike carriers) and of course whether you have particularly long items to carry, e.g. skis.
Budget is also important but bear in mind that a roof box should be expected to last for many family holidays and weekends away; it should give many years of solid and reliable service. We don’t stock any of the really cheap boxes because there are real doubts about their safety and build quality.
- Roof boxes are fitted to roof bars going across the car
- Any box can be fitted to any car, within reason
- Do you want to leave roof bar space for bike racks?
- We know why certain brands are better than others
- We have a 90 day roof box exchange scheme
- We provide the convenience of mail order
If you're feeling spoilt for choice, and can't decide, or are short of time and just want an outstanding deal, then choose one of our package deals - a top quality KAMEI roof box, a set of locking Atera, CRUZ, Thule or Whispbar roof bars, and a roof box hoist or other free gift. We'll provide everything you need for a fixed price, whatever your vehicle! For those on a tighter budget, there are also Karrite Odyssey 325, Hapro Roady 350, Hapro Roady 422 and Thule Ranger 90 package deals.
Our package deals include all our favourite boxes, and our overall “Best box”. Roof boxes in package deals are also part of the exchange scheme so, for many customers, package deals are definitely the way to go.
Our Roof Box List shows our whole roof box range in a complete list, organised by shape, with links to all the boxes.
A summary of how to find the right box:
- Choose by shape, then use the filter boxes to reduce the choice, for example by choosing a colour – most boxes are available in black or in silver. Package deal boxes are clearly identified.
- If you already know which brand of box you want, filter by brand or choose the brand from the right hand column.
- Our Buying Guide will tell you which features really make a difference.
- Some boxes are better than others; check out our Recommendations.
Auto Express roof box test 2012
Auto Express have given their Best Buy award to a KAMEI box for the fifth time in a row: 1st Prize to the KAMEI Husky XXL (£254.95). 2nd Prize to the Atera Certo 480 (£354.95).
By common consent KAMEI (Germany) makes the best quality and best engineered boxes on the market; they never go wrong, and they keep on looking good well beyond their 6 year guarantee period. KAMEI's "pull to shut" central locking system genuinely makes a massive difference to real world usefulness and customer satisfaction – we reckon this was the most fundamental change in roof box design in the last ten years. Their Delphin range of boxes is still the most robust, most secure, most waterproof range of roofboxes on the market, very easy to live with. If you want a Delphin box, and you also need a set of roof bars, check out our roof box and roof bar package deals
INNO boxes now in the UK!
We are delighted to have a range of INNO boxes in stock. INNO is Japan’s market leader in our sector, by a long way, working closely with the Japanese car manufacturers as well as having their own branded products.
Their ‘Shadow’ roofbox range is technically right out at the front, with their “Just pull shut to lock” dual side locking system, and their “Memory Mount” box to bars fitting system. Their “SPM” manufacturing system combines injection moulding technology with press forming to produce bases which, weight for weight, are claimed to be 50% stronger than standard vacuum formed bases.
If you want a very rare, good looking box of exceptional quality, check out the INNO range!
Best budget box?
The rear opening Hapro Roady boxes are better quality than the Karrite Odysseys, but are slightly more expensive. The Roady 350 silver or Roady 350 black are (£134.95). But the Odyssey 325 (£104.95) shown above, is also well made and good value. All these boxes are available as package deals with roof bars.
Thule's fabric Ranger 90
Thule's fabric 340 litre Ranger 90 roof bag no. 6011 (£194.95) is ideal for people who have limited storage space. It weighs 7kg and rolls up to only 120cm long by 27cm diameter. It’s easy to fit and to load because the whole top unzips, but the downside is the lack of security. It's also available as a package deal with CRUZ bars.
Double the space!
If you want huge capacity but also maximum flexibility you should give serious thought to using 2 boxes. Handling and storage is much easier and e.g. you’d only fit one of them if you also need to carry bikes, or a kayak. One for wet and dirty gear, one for dry and clean gear?

We believe our Family roofboxes will suit your needs.
Boxes are bulky items so the ideal place to store them is above your car in the garage, or in a shed. Many people will leave the box attached to the bars, and also use the box for storage. If you don't want a box hoist we're offering an alternative useful item (of lower value).
