Proper Use of Vehicle Roof Racks

When you need to carry cargo on the roof of your car or truck, Wheels in Motion Auto Sales can help you select the right roof rack for your needs. Whether you need to carry passenger luggage across Tempe or want to take sporting equipment out for the weekend, there are rack accessories to suit your needs.

Racks, boxes, and large items on the roof of your car will increase the height of your vehicle. This can cause issues when trying to get into spaces with limited height clearance, such as parking garages. Having a box or other item on the roof can also force you to decrease your speed. Respect the maximum speed ratings on any accessory.

If you're hauling long items, such as lumber or canoes, make sure the front and rear are securely fastened. You can use the towing eyes of your vehicle to do this.
