Loading cargo, furniture or valuables into the back of a trailer can be tricky. They can move about quite a lot and are not protected if the weather suddenly changes.

Using bungee cords on roof racks
Strapping luggage to the top of your car shouldn’t be a hassle, and with bungee cords it isn’t at all. Load up your roof rack as you usually would, and over the top, strap on a few bungee cords. Having these clipped or hooked over your roof rack provides extra support and ensures that you won’t be losing any belongings along the way. Bungee straps will be useful for your roof rack in addition to bungee cords or by themselves. If you’re looking for more info on tying things down to your roof rack, check out our blog here.
