Once you have purchased your kayak then you'll also need to be able to transport it!
With a dedicated Roof Rack Centre we cater for commercial and recreational applications and have a roof rack system for 99.9% of vehicles. A range of ski racks, bike racks and roof boxes is also available.

A covered fitting bay means we can install a roof rack in all weathers (usually while you wait and free of charge!*).

* a fitting charge applies to permanent mounted roofracks to cover labour
