Whispbar 750 series 420 litre Nordic gloss white roof box WB754B

£554.95
RRP: £625.00
Code: PRWB754W

Whispbar have released their range of boxes and they certainly live up to our expectations. This low profile box is a great option if the overall height of your car is a consideration. They are stylish and solid at the same time and the Quick Dock fittings and an Integrated Lock System makes them a pleasure to use.


What's not to like about these roof boxes! They are exceptionally well made, good looking, aerodynamic boxes, very thoughtfully designed and engineered, with a number of excellent innovations including their locking and mounting systems.

They have a "Just pull the lid down to lock the box" system, as also found in the best KAMEI and INNO boxes. "Close lid to lock" systems get around the biggest problem of all other central locking systems which is "How do you shut and lock a fully laden box, especially on a tall vehicle?" The answer is that you need to hold the front and the back of the box tightly closed - which needs two hands, held wide apart - while at the same time needing a third hand to turn the centrally located key and lock the box. It shouldn't take two people to lock a roof box!

The visible parts of the locking system are the two solid external handles - one on each side because all Whispbar boxes are dual side opening. You'll need the key to open the box, and you can't lock the box to remove the key if it's not properly closed. The lid has a small pull shelf for easy closing; there's also a detachable red lanyard on both sides of the lid which will make closing easier on tall vehicles.

As you would expect these boxes have exceptional aerodynamics and Whispbar have managed to design a box that not only looks superb but will also fit loads of gear in.

Other features and general information:

  • 230 x 94 x 29cm, with a capacity of 420 litres.
  • Box weight: 24kg, loading weight 75kg (as always, please note the weight of the box, the roof bars, and your vehicle's maximum permitted roof load).
  • Dual side opening on this wide box makes it very easy to fit to the roof bars.
  • Includes Quick Dock fittings to make fitting the box to your bars incredibly easy; simply place the roof box on the bars, twist the handle inside the box and the fittings locate securely into the T-track channels on your roof bars. It only fits T-track aluminium bars, not solid or square bars.
  • There's usually space for one roof mounted bike carrier, especially if you use aluminium roof bars which stick out beyond the roof bar feet, leaving space for a bike carrier.
  • The lid opens very wide on the double struts, making for easier loading and unloading. These struts are almost as smooth as gas struts.
  • Three point central locking on both sides of the box.
  • Comes in a smart glossy white finish.
  • TÜV approved and City Crash tested.

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, only paying a contribution to our carriage costs. 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. Not just an alternative colour.
  • 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 carriage charges, and a charge for any packaging needed for the return of the original.
  • If you want us to collect the original box, there will be a £50 carriage charge.
  • We arrange the collection, if requested.
  • 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 roof boxes 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 Standard three to five day service is £6.50 (£14.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Express Delivery (one or three days) is £9.50 (£19.50 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 (courier, usually Express Delivery).

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 Express Delivery need to be received by 4pm.

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday.

What about Next Working Day delivery? 
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express Delivery’.  Many Express Delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, but some will arrive on the second working day, or be split between these two days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can, and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, 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.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. 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.
