There are plenty of amazing things that a custom service body from CVS can do to improve the performance of your Ute. For instance, if you use your Ute for recreational purposes, then your service body could provide a safe place for your pooch to sit while you’re driving around Australia. On the other hand, if you’re a Ute driver as part of a fleet, or you use your vehicle to help you run your business, a custom service body protects your investment from damage.
One of the most impressive aspects of getting a custom service body with CVS is the fact that we can deliver a range of unique fit-outs that will help you to customise your Ute to your specific needs. For instance, you might install aluminium shelving and drawers to help you organise your workspace, or a camera and sensor to make parking easier. Here, we’re going to cover one of the most common fit-outs – the roof rack, and what you should know about yours!
An aluminium roof rack can be placed on top of your service body to help provide you with extra storage space, besides the additional space that a service body provides. These unique accessories can be helpful when you need to carry larger items, from luggage to big containers. Because roof racks don’t come standard on a Ute, they’re something that’s frequently considered by hard-working Australians looking to upgrade their vehicle.
If you already have your Ute, then you’ll need to discuss your needs regarding a custom roof rack with the experts here at CVS when you’re coming up with a plan for your custom service body. We’ll be able to give you some guidance on how large your roof-rack should be, and how much you should expect it to carry in any given situation.
For most people considering fit-outs for their custom service body, the benefits of a roof rack are pretty obvious. For instance, your roof rack will help you to increase the storage space of your vehicle – something which is often a concern for people who are considering service bodies in the first place. A roof rack might allow you to increase the leg room in your vehicle by allowing you to store equipment elsewhere. Additionally, these racks offer a solid platform for you to use when transporting equipment.
It’s important to make sure that if you’re ever planning on carrying awkward equipment or large crates with your Ute, you have the right resources available. If you don’t secure large items to your Ute properly, then you could end up presenting a severe safety hazard to the people around you on the road, and yourself.
The majority of roof racks will come with a number of components, which include mounts, rails, and towers. The mounts hold the entire rack onto or service body in question. The towers attach to the rails to give you more opportunities for holding equipment. To make sure that you secure your items properly on the roof rack, make sure that you always tie your equipment down with four distinct points of connection.
Doing this will make sure that you have as much stability as possible on the road. Remember, when tying your equipment down, you should take steps to keep the straps as tight as you can, so you don’t have to worry about tying a too many knots. Carefully wrap the straps around the load multiple times for extra security.
