The Journey Centre will provide clean serviceable equipment upon commencement of the hire period.

Due to the value of our equipment, plus your contents, they can be an easy and desirable target for thieves. We therefore only hire roof boxes on FULLY LOCKABLE roof bars. Trailers will be supplied with a coupling head lock. Please ensure you adequately insure both the value of our equipment, and all your products and contents as any theft/damage is your responsibilty and the full value* of the equipment will be charged if the items/s are not returned in original condition.


We do not hire roof bars due to the vast variation of fittings it would require. We can however confidently recommend a Thule locking system for extra security and peace of mind, which we offer for sale at DISCOUNTED PRICES for all types of vehicles. Your roof bars can also be used in the future for a variety of purposes and a wide range of Cycle Carriers, Ladder Supports, Ski and Watersport Adapters etc. are available. In most cases, the bars can be transferred to your next vehicle (or cars belonging to other family members/friends), simply by changing some of the components.


We include this in the cost of the hire, but you must already have your bars attached to your vehicle at approx 700mm apart. These must be of a suitable type to accept the box and fully lockable. If you require any advice or for us to supply and fit the bars at the same time please ensure you discuss this with us prior to collecting your roof box.

PLEASE NOTE: Hire Service is only available from the store – not mail order.

*Full value is the selling price prevailing in our store at the time of hire which may not necessarily be the MRRP.
