The most common issue? Not being 100% sure on which style of roof-fitting your car has – there are photos of the options below to help you. Try & avoid simply guessing but if you do know please include the info rather than putting “unsure” as it will help speed your quotation through!
Fitting: We include fitting of all items as standard – no additional cost.
Demonstration: you’ll be given a comprehensive demonstration of how to get the best out of the equipment hired.
Timing: Please note that we cannot necessarily guarantee an early or late fitting appointment and it is the case that they can be anytime during our working day. Therefore if you have time critical travel plans such as a ferry or channel crossing, please make us aware in the comments field and also consider adding a day either side of your hire to ensure we don’t impinge upon your arrangements.
Bank Holidays: we tend not to be open on these weekends. Please make us aware of any special requirements.
Some Examples of Style Of Roof Fitting
- Raised roofrails – these run front to back on the car and you can place your fingers between the bottom of the bar and the top of the car.
- Flush/Solid Roofrails – again these front to back on the roof however it is NOT possible to place your hand underneath the rail.
- Fixed Points? What you will normally see on your car’s roof are 4 plastic covers that when lifted/slipped to one side reveal a fixing point. Often this is a threaded recess, sometimes not.
- T-Profile/T-Track basically a metal gully that runs front to back. example
- Normal – basically, this means that there is nothing on the top of the roof asides from possibly a plastic trim. People often confuse this with a flush rail 🙂
