The questions you should ask when browsing all the roof racks offered for sale
If you have been involved in South Africa’s 4×4 community for a while, chances are you have spotted more than a few roof racks. These roof racks offer a lot of convenient storage space, and allow off-roaders to carry much more things when going on holiday than they would otherwise be able to. Other less obvious benefits that come from buying the best quality roof racks include more room in the vehicle as well, and being able to transport large goods safely and easily.
However, when it comes to choosing one of the many roof racks for sale, you need to ask the right questions. By doing so, you will receive the answers needed to make an informed buying decision. It will also steer you clear of buying cheap and low-quality roof racks, which will not only make your life more difficult on the road, but could actually put it in jeopardy. So, let us take a look at some of the questions you need answers to when standing in front of a selection of roof racks for sale.
What size roof rack do you need?
A general rule is that, the smaller the roof rack, the cheaper it is. Logically, a smaller roof rack requires less material to make, and will invariably be cheaper than a large one. Be aware of your requirements and buy the correct size of roof rack. It is pointless to save money on a small rack if it is not going to offer you enough space.
Is it designed to be as quiet as possible?
Do you mean roof racks can generate noise? Of course they can, when the wind is rushing over them on the highway. Some roof racks are designed with longitudinally slats and others with lateral slats. Obviously, slats that run laterally will generate more drag, and therefore create more wind noise, while the opposite is true for racks with longitudinal slats.
Is it user friendly?
Apart from convenient installation and ease of use, an important feature of any rack is the availability of accessories. When shopping for your next roof rack, ensure that you choose one for which there is a broad range of attachments and accessories available for sale.
