Roof Racks

Hi. Does anyone know of a good roof rack fitting company local to Nantwich - happy to travel further if necessary? I'm looking for an easy load roof rack or similar. Many thanks.

The Thule roofracks are the most common and are great for standard racks. Manchester Canoes in Warrington can supply these and I'm sure would help with any fitting.
Thule have a lift-assist rack, but I'm not aware of anyone that uses it. Manchester Canoes also have a "RUK" assist rack that looks like a simple extension bar system - much cheaper that the full assist systems.

The most common lift-assist type rack is by Kari-Tek http://www.karitek.co.uk - but you'd have to contact them to see if there are any local suppliers.

Good luck!

Thank you for your help. Much appreciated. I have contacted Karitek, but will also try and call in at Manchester Canoes over the weekend.

I have a Kari-Tek on my campervan it's very easy to load our sea boats. I got mine direct from kari-tek and had it fitted by Vamoose camper conventions, but any garage or handy man/woman could fit it.

Thank you. I have been in touch with Kari-Tek who have been most helpful. I need to get roof bars now on my car for their system to fit, but will look at Vamoose and other options for fitting. Many thanks, again.
