The Roof Box Company - about us
The Roof Box Company is the UK's largest specialist distributor of load carrying gear - particularly roof bars, roof boxes, and bike, ski and boat carriers. We also supply various other items including snowchains, car boot mats and liners, car seat covers, and bike transport boxes and bags. Other parts of the business concentrate on light commercial van racks - see www.van-racks.co.uk - and a wholesale business for e.g. straps and lashings. We also trade at the subtler end of the car styling market.
As well as selling products we have a workshop for the repair and servicing of roof boxes in particular; please e-mail as required for further information. This is offered as a service for our customers (freight charges may apply), although we tend to charge our time to competitors' customers. (On this subject, beware of the competitors whose prices are so much cheaper than the market average - some of them may well not be around this time next year, especially the ones who aren't selling at a profit! Any Tom, Dick or Harry can launch a plausible web site and sell at crazy prices, and some do.)
Within our market we're UK distributors for most of Europe's best known brand names, including Atera, B&W International, Carbox, KAMEI (all from Germany), Autoform, Fasty and Thule (Sweden), AutoSock (Norway) and Karrite and Pendle(UK). We are Thule's largest UK distributor (apart of course from Halfords!) In short, we know the European market very well - who makes good stuff and who doesn't - and we have between us very considerable experience and knowledge of the equipment we supply.
We can send you brochures and prices for all our products, but we aim to show most of the detail online.
More likely than not you're here looking for roof bars, bike carriers or a roof box. Here's our sales pitch for some of our core products, just in case you haven't thought about these things already:
Roof boxes are the answer to numerous load carrying problems, allowing you to travel in better safety, comfort and style, with minimal hassle. Families generally, especially dog owning families, are our biggest market, but boxes are often used for more 'specialist' purposes, e.g. for carrying golf clubs, sailing kit, and fishing equipment.
Our experience is that people with roof boxes will find endless good reasons for using them again and again. MPVs in particular seem to have a shortage of luggage space, and families usually want to pack more than will reasonably fit in the boot, especially if they are going camping, or have children's buggies to carry. Often it's the convenience factor that's important - just chuck it in the box and save time having to pack everything neatly into the car. (Particularly important when it's raining, and you just want to get back to base as quickly as possible...)
Most of our customers are driving off somewhere, but for those who are travelling by air, please be aware that bike boxes provide the opportunity to take your own bike with you, and to get it there safely. (Bike bags are really only appropriate for train travel, or to protect the car from the bike...)
Help to protect the value of your car, and use it as the all round work horse it should be, by fitting a quality car boot mat or liner and a set of washable car seat covers. Check out Safe Bag to really get the best from your vehicle.
