If you are taking your SUV or minivan on a trip with the whole family, you might need some extra room for the items people need to take along. You can use your vehicle's roof rack for more space. If you plan to use your roof rack, Lancaster County Motors Used Car Center in East Petersburg, PA wants you to use it safely.

When using a roof rack, make sure that the items you are placing on the roof are weatherproof or they are in a weatherproof container. You want to place the items within the confines of the roof rack. It is not safe to let items hang over the side. Never obstruct your view with items hanging over the roof rack.

Place the cargo box on the roof before you load your items in the box. This will prevent strain when you lift. Always tightly secure the items on your roof so that there is no shifting.
