Taking the time to safely secure cargo to your roof rack is one of the important travel preparations you can do before taking off on your next road trip. We hope all drivers in Phoenix stay safe on the road by checking out these helpful roof rack tips.

The first step to safely packing a roof rack is to lift up an empty container or luggage bag onto the cross bars. Lifting it while empty will prevent injuries and back strain. Pack enough weight in the container that it is not easily blown away. Use at least two straps with cam-buckles to loop around the bars of the roof rack. The buckles can be pumped to eliminate any slack in the straps. Sit in the driver's seat to ensure that the strapped down luggage does not block your view from any direction.
