Looking for reassurance?... Can't decide?

If in doubt, please trust us with these Recommendations...

There's always a price / quality trade off when choosing a 'Best Buy'. We only sell good quality roof boxes, so we’re looking for the best overall value in each price range, with the boxes organised into their basic shapes – Narrow (to 67cm wide), Medium-width, Wide (90cm or more). There is such a difference in size and price between the shorter and longer Wide boxes that we split these between Short Wide, at the start of this list, and Long Wide, at the end of this list.

In any event you certainly won't go wrong with one of our package deals; they’re outstanding value for money and you’re getting the best boxes in their price range as well as top quality roof bars, all at a useful discount to buying them individually.

We have a 90 day exchange scheme. What this means in practice is that if your box is not as suitable for your purposes as you thought it would be, we'll exchange it for a box of comparable quality - we'll pay the return carriage. The details of this unique scheme / guarantee are shown on our Terms & Conditions pages. The bottom line is that, subject to a bit of commercial commonsense, we'll go the extra mile to make sure that you're not left with a box you're not happy with. There are no risks in buying a roof box from The Roof Box Company.

If you need to carry bikes as well, then using aluminium bars of average length (120cm) will allow you to carry:
• Narrow boxes – 3 bikes
• Medium-width boxes – 2 bikes
• Wide boxes – 1 bike

Our recommendations are as follows:

Short Wide boxes - BUDGET

Short Wide boxes - TOP QUALITY

A reminder that if you also need roof bars, all KAMEI boxes are available at discount prices in fixed price roof box and roof bars package deals.

Narrow boxes - BUDGET

  • Narrow boxes are ideal for those who want to carry two bikes (easy) or even three bikes on the roof, as well as a box.  They’re less fashionable than they used to be, partly because so many customers put their extra bikes behind the car. Thule’s Ranger 500 (£249.95) is a fabric roof bag / “soft box”.

Narrow boxes - TOP QUALITY

A reminder that if you also need roof bars, all KAMEI boxes are available at discount prices in fixed price roof box and roof bars package deals.

Medium width boxes - BUDGET

  • KAMEI’s Husky L boxes (£194.95)are family sized boxes, available in right hand opening (silver or black) or left hand opening (silver or black). They cost a lot less in a package deal with roof bars.

Medium width boxes - TOP QUALITY

Medium-length boxes:

  • KAMEI’s Delphin 340Ks are always very popular family boxes, being top quality at a mid market price, and really good looking.  They’re available in scratch-resistant silver (£244.95) left hand opening or right hand opening or in metallic black (£279.95 ) left hand opening or right hand opening.
  • Atera’s Certo 420 litre, runner up in the 2012 Auto Express test, is available in silver (£324.95), black (£354.95) or white (£369.95).
  • Thule’s Motion 200s (£409.95) or Motion 800s (£439.95) are available in gloss silver or gloss black. They’re similar widths but the 200 is shorter. If in doubt, choose a Motion 800.
  • KAMEI’s Corvara 390Ks, starting at £324.95, have a similar foot print to all these boxes, with quality and user friendly features as good as it gets - "close to being the perfect roofbox" (Auto Express 2008 and 2009 “Best Buy”). They’re available in scratch-resistant silver or black metallic.

Longer boxes, bigger capacity, still Medium-width:

  • KAMEI’s Delphin 470s at £314.95 for scratch-resistant silver and £349.95 for gloss black are our all round family-on-a-reasonable-budget "Best Buy" boxes. You can get a huge amount into these boxes and, what with dogs, children etc., having a box of this size makes all the difference! They're available in right hand opening (silver or black) or left hand opening (silver or black). They cost a lot less in a [package deal] with roof bars. “Use this roof box, and you’ll love it! Feels bombproof, and that shape maximises volume.” (Auto Express roof boxes test 2009, Runner Up)
  • INNO Shadow 16s, £500.00 are available in gloss silver or gloss black.
  • KAMEI’s Corvara 475s, starting at , are as good as it gets: sophisticated styling, the best materials, the best features. They’re available in scratch-resistant silver or black metallic.

A reminder that if you also need roof bars, all KAMEI boxes are available at discount prices in fixed price roof box and roof bars package deals.

Long Wide boxes - BUDGET

  • KAMEI’s Husky XXL boxes (£274.95) won the Auto Express Best Buy award in 2010 and 2012 (there was no test in 2011). They’re available in right hand opening (silver or black) or left hand opening (silver or black).

Long Wide boxes - TOP QUALITY

  • KAMEI 510 A handsome dual side opening box in gloss black for £389.95.
  • Atera’s Certo boxes are available as the 560 silver for £384.95 or 580 black for £414.95. Their features and build quality are the same as the Thule Motion 900s’, but the styling is very different. Atera is a name best associated with award winning tow bar bike carriers and roof bars.
  • Thule’s Motion 900s, (£639.95), available in gloss silver or gloss black. These boxes are always popular but, like the Atera Certos above, they are a two person lift unless you have appropriate experience and strength to move them on your own.
  • Yakima SkyBox Pros. The Pro 16s are £424.95 in silver or black, and the Pro 18 in black £474.95.
  • KM390
  • KAMEI Oyster 450, Bodyline styling; for aluminium bars only. In silver [£589.95] or black [£589.95].

A reminder that if you also need roof bars, all KAMEI boxes are available at discount prices in fixed price roof box and roof bars package deals.

Size and weight may be no big deal for you, but give some consideration to using 2 boxes; most of our 2 box deals provide a greater capacity than one box, usually at a similar price, but with much easier handling, and the flexibility to change the set up as the family grows up and requirements change.

The Best Box

What in our view is the overall Best roof box on the market today?All things considered - especially bearing in mind quality, reliability, and ease of use, but also individuality and all round smartness - it's the KAMEI Delphin 470, priced from £314.95.

Our Runner Up is the KAMEI Corvara 475, priced from £349.95.

Families looking for boxes which are large enough but also flexible enough for the medium term, e.g. leaving roof space for a couple of bike carriers, need look no further than one of these two.

Don't forget about our 90 day exchange scheme - just in case you aren't convinced that you got the right box first time.

THE ROOF BOX COMPANY: SPECIAL OFFER - FREE ROOF BOX HOIST WITH EVERY ROOF BOX SOLD!

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).
