CRUZ rear carrier system: Apex 400 litre box no. 940-540

Code: CR940540

A great option if your roof is taken up with skis or bikes, or you have bulky gear that's difficult to fit in a roof box. The platform is the ideal height for easy loading so it's great for items that are too heavy or awkward to fit in a roof box. It's also an ideal solution if you need to keep the height of your car to a minimum, e.g. height barriers on the ferries or Eurostar.

Only suitable for use with the CRUZ Tailo platform 940-544 (or its predecessor the CRUZ Rear Cargo platform 940-535). The CRUZ Tailo platform tilts to allow access to the tailgate (but it's not suitable for vans, either with twin rear doors or with top-hinged tailgates, because you can’t tilt the Tailo carrier far enough to open the doors or tailgate).

Features include:

  • Dimensions (LxWxH): 131 x 63 x 70cm
  • Volume: 400 litres
  • Load capacity: 50kg (tow bar nose weight dependent)
  • Weight: 12kg
  • Made from ABS plastic
  • Lockable (two-point central locking)
  • Includes two interior straps to secure the load

Can only be used in conjunction with the CRUZ Tailo system base platform.

Delivery FAQs

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 (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

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’. Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next or second working day, but some will arrive on the second or third working day, or be split between these 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.
