Calix Nordic Loader roof box, gloss white, no. 1-NL-GW-QG

This is a handsome roof box. Calix developed the Nordic Loader with a focus on quality, design, stiffness, safety and user friendliness and have certainly got it right.

As well as being a really practical shape it's also been designed to look great on the car. Recesses on the base of the box accommodate the roof bars and bring the box closer to the car. The low, streamlined design follows the car’s contours and creates the impression of an integrated roof box and car.

It's a particularly low profile, aerodynamic box. At just 28cm deep it would be a great choice if you are looking for a box that you can fit in your garage, or if you need to keep under a height limit for a ferry etc.

The Calix Nordic Loader has been designed to maximise load carrying and look as good as possible on the car. This box is very easy on the eye from any angle and there are recesses in the base to accommodate the bars and bring the box closer to the vehicle, It's even got a funnel at the back to accommodate an aerial. The tapered nose section provides exceptional aerodynamics without reducing capacity (there’s obviously not much space in the nose of the box, so it follows that most of the 430 litres is elsewhere!). These all help to minimise wind noise.

It has a double shell made from ABS plastic. This results in exceptional strength and stability. It also gives the box much cleaner lines as you can't see any of the external rivets. It's even got a unique 'safety nose' to make your load as secure as possible.

The clever 'Quick Grip' fittings are among the best we have seen. Just tighten the ratchet until they are secure on your bars. Flip the cover over - it won't shut properly unless you've fastened it tight enough. The fittings are particularly low profile and take up very little space in the box.

Other features:

  • Made from a double skin ABS plastic
  • Maximum load limit: 75kg
  • Dual side opening - to make fitting and using the box easier
  • Three central locking points, three super strong hinges
  • Strong spring struts for wide and easy opening
  • Comes with 'Quick Grip' fittings that take up very little space in the box - they fit around all the bars we well sell
  • Easy to load: includes an integrated handle and low load edges
  • Includes an LED interior light to make loading easier when the light isn't great
  • 5 year guarantee
  • Also available in gloss black

Very few customers know much about the roof box market before they visit our site. We have a lot of information about the things to think about before buying, and the “real world usefulness" of various roof box features, but you’ll be buying sight unseen, and you probably won’t have used a roof box before, so there is inevitably some luck in getting a box that you’ll be happy with.

We want to remove the risks of buying these large and often expensive items, perhaps from brands which almost every other roof box retailer doesn’t stock, and so we have a unique “90 day Exchange Scheme” for roof boxes.

This allows you to use a roof box and, with the benefit of experience, to exchange it for a new one within 90 days of invoice date. Most exchanges are from a shorter box to a longer one, or from a wider box to a narrower one.

These are the rules of the Exchange Scheme:

  • You are allowed one exchange only.
  • The original box must be in "as new" condition, subject only to fair wear and tear.
  • The replacement box must be a different model.
  • The replacement box must not be part of a package deal or be from our Bargains section.
  • Roof bars are never part of the Exchange Scheme.

This is how the exchange scheme works:

  • We charge in full for the replacement box, including the appropriate carriage charge and a charge for any packaging needed for the return of the original.
  • We arrange the collection and pay the return carriage costs.
  • When the original box arrives back here we refund you for the invoice value of the original box, but you won't get back more than the invoice value of the replacement box. In other words, if the replacement is cheaper than the original we won't be giving you "extra cash back".

Please note: we can only collect items from mainland UK.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is £5.50 (£9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is £8.50 (£12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.

There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.

We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.

No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.
