Car Roof Boxes: Look at Design and Materials

By: Garry Kelkar

One of the easiest ways of getting away with space problem in a car is to add roof boxes to it. Providing enough space to the car, they make room for keeping accessories of all sorts, be it something fragile and expensive or any other sort of thing. Car roof boxes can be fixed permanently or on a temporary basis. One can remove them if and when he wants or leave them on the top of the car permanently.

The trend of adding boxes to a car is rather new. Earlier various types of bars or racks were the norm. As time is passing by and people are getting fashionable, the old, outdated bars are giving way to the fashionable boxes. Nowadays, car roof boxes are available in all shapes, colours and designs. They are made as per the model of different types of cars. There may be some limitation in the colour.

While purchasing car roof boxes, one should give importance to the quality of the materials they are made of and the shape in which they are modelled. Both these things are important to be taken care of for two different reasons. The roof boxes will be there on the top of a car. This means that they will be open to some kind of rough usage. The general shaking and jerking of the car may damage the boxes.

This is the reason why car roof boxes should be made of heavy materials. Unless they are made of tough materials, they may not remain intact while facing the jerking and shaking. Secondly, if the roof boxes do not go in sync with the model of the car, they will look incongruous and hamper the look of the car. Hence, they should match with the design and model of the car to which they are to be added.
