We have a limited number of these boxes available for £25 less than the normal price of a Motion XT XL. These boxes have some scuffs around the lip of the base of the box. These scuffs are fairly minor and you won't be able to see them when the box is closed. A lot of boxes will eventually get this a few small scuffs here after they have been opened and closed a number of times. Because of high standards for the quality control of roof boxes they can't be sold 'as new' - grab a bargain while stocks last!

The Motion XT is stylish and spacious. It's TÜV approved for loads to 75kg and comes with a glossy black lid on a matt black base. It is designed to have a forward position on the car roof, looking neat and leaving more room at the rear of the vehicle to open the tailgate.

Key features and specifications:

  • Dual Side opening with lid handles so you can choose to use it on either side of the vehicle, and to make for easier fitting and removal.
  • There’s a Thule 'One Key System' compatible central locking system on each side of the box.
  • Easy to open and close in all conditions thanks to grip-friendly handles and supporting 'lid-lifter' struts.
  • 'SlideLock' locking system automatically locks the lid in place and red indicator tabs let you know that the box is securely closed.
  • "Power-Click" box to bar fittings. You just turn each wheel to draw the fitting claws around the roof bars, making this box easy to fit to both standard steel and wider aluminium roof bars – maximum dimensions 90mm wide by 30mm deep - they fit all the bars we sell. These fittings also make it easier to fit boxes to unusual shaped manufacturers’ “own brand” bars, but these bars must be symmetrical in shape for the Power Clicks to work properly.
  • If you're using aerobars, and want to maximise the space in the box, we recommend that you remove these fittings (they lift out very easily) and instead use Thule’s T-track aerobar adapters (listed below) which provide an invisible box to bar fitting as well as allowing you to make full use of the box capacity.
  • Box weight 23.5kg. Before loading the box, check your vehicle's maximum permitted loading limit, taking into account the weight of the roof bars, the weight of the box, and the weight of the contents.
  • Dimensions: External 215cm x 95cm x 44cm. Internal 80.5cm wide x TBAcm (it depends on what you pack, and where, and whether you use Power Clicks or aerobar adapters).
  • Carrying skis? The Motion XT XL will hold 5 to 7 pairs of skis, maximum length 200cm. There’s a ski carrier accessory available separately, shown below (this only works with the original PowerClick fittings, not the optional T-track aerobar adapters).
  • Roof bar geometry: The maximum distance between roof bar centres is 93cm, the minimum distance 56cm.
  • Guarantee: 5 years

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.

Thule Motion XT roof box - how to fit Thule Motion XT roof box Lifestyle

Fitting Tips
A box is generally easier to load and unload if it's fitted towards the edge of a vehicle; you'll probably always be stretching if you fit it centrally. If you want to keep your Motion in pristine condition, don’t place or store it on tarmac, gravel or concrete.
Packing Tips
Our general advice on packing roof boxes is that bags / grips are much easier than suitcases. And if you can’t get your child’s buggy in the box, which is probably what you’d hoped for, and why you purchased a particular box, put the buggy in the boot and the luggage in the box. “I’ve bought the biggest box and my buggy doesn’t fit” is a frequent complaint!”

We offer our existing customers a full "Next Day if possible" spares service, and will cannibalise new stock as required to find you the parts you need.

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.

Payment options:

We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".
