Choosing The Right Car Rack For Your Move

Even if you use a moving company for your household items, you will probably still want to take a lot of smaller items in your car. An overhead carry rack can reduce over-crowding, but it's important to choose the right one for your needs.

  • Soft-case carriers: these come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit most vehicles. As the name implies, they are made from soft materials that are usually waterproof and can be zipped up to keep their contents in place.
  • Hard-shell carriers: these are a better option if you are travelling a long way, as they are not only waterproof but also lockable, meaning you can safely leave your car unattended. They are more expensive than soft case carriers, but should last the lifetime of your vehicle.

Whichever type of overhead carrier you opt for, you should have it professionally fitted and be aware of any load limits that might apply. Source:
