You already know that we offer a first-class caravan accessory fitting service, but did you know that we also provide a high-quality car accessory fitting service?

From roof racks and roof bars to bike racks and roof boxes, we can fit a huge selection of car accessories onsite, in our Plymouth based service centre. As approved and award-winning Thule dealers, we carry an extensive selection of car accessories at highly competitive prices.


Roof racks and roof bars are a great way to increase your vehicle’s carrying capacity and enable you to safely and securely transport large items like surfboards or canoes.

We stock a selection of Thule roof racks and we’ve got a dedicated area for roof racks and load carriers, with lots of options to suit most needs.

When you’re buying a roof rack , there are a few things you should bear in mind:

  1. It must fit your car perfectly, without leaving scratches and marks
  2. For the safety of yourself and other road users, it must stay securely attached during use
  3. It should be easy to assemble and fit

The type of vehicle you have will also impact on the type of roof rack you choose. Before you purchase, it’s essential to establish which of the following categories your vehicle falls in:

  • Cars with a ‘normal’ roof: Whilst you may argue that all car roofs are ‘normal’, this term is used to describe any car roof that doesn’t have in-built roof rails or fixpoints. This means that the roof rack will grip around the edge of the roof.
  • Cars with built-in fixpoints: Many cars are fitted with pre-installed attachments for roof racks and load carriers, known as fixpoints.
  • Cars with rain gutters: If your vehicle has in-built rain gutters or a raised roof, there are a range of suitable Thule roof racks available.
  • Cars with roof rails: If your vehicle has roof rails, there are several options available to you. Thule have roof racks to suit vehicles with normal sized, integrated or extreme roof rails.
  • Cars with T-tracks: If your vehicle has factory fitted T-tracks on the roof, you can still benefit from a Thule roof rack. Simply mount the fitting kit onto the T-tracks and then you can easily click the load carrier on and off.

To learn more about the right roof rack for your vehicle, please visit our Plymouth shop to chat with a member of the TCC team and find out more about our car accessory fitting service, or use Thule’s interactive roof rack guide to find out what your options are.


The ideal solution for family holidays, hobbies and generally boosting the carrying capacity of your vehicle, roof boxes provide a great solution for transporting your luggage or equipment wherever you need to go without taking up valuable space inside your vehicle.

As an exclusive Thule stockist, we have a range of high-performance roof boxes available to purchase from our Plymouth shop. With ingenious design, innovative features and robust construction, Thule roof boxes are simple to fit and easy to load. Whether you’re looking for a roof box that can be folded down when not in use, a long and thin roof box to secure skiing equipment in or a large and roomy box for regular use, we’ve got something to suit all needs. 

Our car accessory fitting service means that we can install any of our roof boxes for you quickly and easily, taking the stress away from you! What’s more, if you’re making a one-off trip or don’t want to invest in buying a roof box, we offer a roof box hire service. Please call us on 01752 341133 to learn more and book in your rental.
