This company is a pleasure to deal with. The staff I spoke to could not have been more helpful, they gave me good advice and a great deal on the kit I wanted. The roof box, bars and bags I ordered were at my door by lunchtime the next day. What more could you ask for? Highly recommended, will definitely be ordering from them again. (read more)

The sevice we received was brilliant We needed a part for a roof rack in a hurry and Roofbox was one of the few suppliers who had it in stock. We phoned at 3.30 pm on Thursday and the postman delivered it at 9.00 am the next morning....fantastic service, especially as we live near Inverness in the north of Scotland. Thanks guys for taking the time to make sure it was the right part for the job and then for getting it to us so efficiently. (read more)

Originally tried to order a B&W waterproof case online. Unfortunatly it wasn't in stock - but they offered an older similar case for a special reduced price. Soon after ordered a smaller B&W case. Later decided to go to padded divider inserts instead of the 'pick' &'puck' foam. Used the online chat on the roofbox website - wanted to know if the padded dividers were available for the older case. They would have to check. Emailed me later with a suitable divider with a link on the... (read more)

I ordered two dog related items from The Roof Box Company, one of which was a dog guard. The delivery was first rate, the items arriving before midday on the day following my purchase. Unfortunately there wa a very minor part missing from the dog guard and so I had cause to e-mail the company informing them of this. The following day I received not only one replacement for the missing part, but an additional supply of these parts for future use. To say I am impressed with the level of... (read more)

I ordered a roof box for my Micra using the website. This was a painless experience and I received the various kits within a couple of days. Unfortunately I had not read the website guidelines on selecting a roof box for a 'short roof' car very carefully and found that the mounting kit would not work with my car and the chosen box. The Roof Box Company responded within hours and came up with a plan to exchange the mounting kit with a suitable one. The replacement was executed in 24... (read more)

I ordered my roof bars and bike rack from the web site and was very pleased that it held my hand throughout telling me which rack worked with which bars on which car. The bars are brilliant, solid and very good value. When I was a little mystified with the bike rack fitting The Roof Box Company bent over backwards to help me solve my problem. They were never less than friendly, concerned and helpful. Their customer service is exemplary and when my children get older and I need more bike... (read more)

I have been so impressed by The Roofbox Company.I had a few difficulties attaching my roof bars to the car but their customer services were amazing. They went out of their way to try and assist. I even sent them photos so they could look into detail with the issue I was having. If you have a query, their email response time is also very quick. I cannot fault them and will certainly be buying from their website the future. (read more)

Roofbox.com delivered my roofbars and 3 x bike rack order promptly at an advantageous price. I had some annoying issues getting the Atera bike racks to lock to the Atera steel roof bars. Roofbox responded immediately to email requests for help with relevant (but sadly ineffective) tech information. I called them to report what I saw as a manufacturing fault and fearing the worst for getting much real support at all, let alone in time to get ready for our holiday just 3 days off. Roofbox...

The roofbox company/John Jordan provided me with one-to-one care until my issues were resolved. I found them very accommodating. It isn’t what you expect from an Internet company. If you want a roof rack system for several different purposes – in my case carrying bikes and/or roof box and/or windsurfer, it can be tricky to find the best fit. Make sure you ask their advice before purchasing. When original system didn’t work out, they let us change the bars for an alternative. They also... (read more)

Purchased aluminium roof bars after reading the information on their site. Unfortunately one of the bars was a poor fit so I contacted the company by phone. They were very polite and requested I send photographs by email which I did the same day. Two weeks later, having not received a reply I emailed again. This resulted in a phone call and an apology for not having replied. Following an exchange of emails which appeared to be going nowhere I decided to give up and just live with the... (read more)

After much deliberation I decided to go for the Thule Ranger 90 and Cruz bars set from The Roof Box Company. I will say there were a couple of issues: - The web price didn't initially match what was charged. - The wrong locks were sent. However what turned this into a positive experience was the quick turn around and superb service. As I spotted the price difference I was offered an upgraded package which I happily accepted. The second issue of the wrong locks was a simple picking error... (read more)

I have to say what an outstanding service I have just received. Having bought Altera bars from you for my previous car I got what I expected and wanted - robust carriers for a roof box and kayak. However, the icing on the cake was the turnaround time - web ordered Wednesday at 1605, delivered on the south coast at 1030 Thursday and the driver put them in the garage so my wife didn't have to touch them.
Please take a well deserved pat on the back!

I agree with some of the other reviews here, we really should give this company a chance. My items took longer than desired to arrive but the product was well worth the wait.
