Properly Using a Roof Rack

When you need additional storage for the vehicle that you drive around Saint Cloud, MN, Choice Auto can help you get a roof rack that will fit your car or truck. Start by finding the weight limit that your car can carry and choose an appropriately sized rack. Different car racks are often rated to carry more weight than the actual vehicle can take on.

When you add a rack to a car, it increases the height of the vehicle. Be aware of the extra height when entering covered parking garages or other areas with limited clearance.

If you need to carry long items, such as surfboards or canoes, be sure to secure the front and back as well as the middle. If the front isn't tied down, the wind can rip a long item off of any type of rack and cause a lot of damage.
