Image for Halfords Roof Box Fitting Service article

Roof boxes are the perfect solution for long road trips or even just to provide some extra storage space for bags and luggage on that trip to the campsite. Choosing the right roof box (and roof bars if you need them) is straightforward once you've used our roof box and bar selector tool and checked the details in our roof box buyer's guide, but fitting a roof box can be fiddly, especially if you've never fitted one before.

If you aren't particularly good at DIY jobs (or lack the patience!), don't forget that Halfords can also fit any roof box for you. As well as fitting your roof box to your roof bars for the first time, we can also show you how attach and detach it yourself, so you'll be able to do it easily next time.

How Do I Get My Roof Box Fitted?

Buying in-store

If you're shopping in-store, just ask a colleague about fitting, and they'll be more than happy to help. Remember that if you're not sure which roof box to go for, they'll happily explain the differences and point your in the right direction.

Buying online

If you're buying your roof box online, then simply select 'add fitting' at the online checkout. You'll then be giving an option to click and collect, so choose a suitable time and remember to head to your chosen Halfords store in the vehicle that you want to fit your new roof bars to!

Is there anything else I need to know about roof box fitting?
