Terms & Conditions

Roof Rack Fittings:

Complimentary 3-month and annual check-up:

After your initial fitting we recommend coming back to us for a no charge check up on your roof racks. Roof racks can settle after a few weeks of use and it is the manufacturers recommendation to regularly check, maintain, and tighten components as needed.

We offer a complete wrap around service which covers you from fitting right through to changing roof racks or accessories to different vehicles and we are more than happy to run you through how to check, maintain and tighten your roof racks and accessories yourself for when you can’t make it in.

Our roof rack technicians are the best in the business and are more than happy to help with maintenance of your roof racks.

Manufacturers Extended Warranties:

Some of our manufacturers have extended warranties and these are noted on each brand information page on the website. To activate these extended warranties, you must complete the manufacturers online form or warranty card supplied with the product at the time of sale/delivery and return the card to the manufacturer as requested.
Please note that outside the normal warranties, you can still deal with the Roof Rack Centre if you have any problems with any products bought through us. We are well known for going out of our way to ensure customers get a fair deal and are looked after.
Extended warranties are issued by the manufacturer and not by the Roof Rack Centre and hence the responsibility to honour these extended warranties is up to the manufacturer alone.
