How to make more space in my car

Optimizing car storage space with car racks and cargo boxes can greatly enhance your ability to transport bulky items and maximize your car's interior space. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you:

  1. Assess your storage needs: Determine the types and sizes of items you need to transport regularly. This will help you choose the appropriate car rack and cargo box sizes.

  2. Choose the right car rack: Select a car rack system that fits your vehicle and is compatible with the items you plan to transport. Consider factors like weight capacity, ease of installation, and security features. At Ital E Concepts we have a variety of customized car rack solutions for your car that are easy to instal and safe. 

  3. Install the car rack: Follow the manufacturer's instructions to securely install the car rack on your vehicle. Make sure it is properly aligned and tightened to ensure stability and safety.

  4. Select a cargo box: Depending on your needs, choose a cargo box that fits your car rack and offers sufficient storage capacity. Consider factors like size, aerodynamics, durability, and security features (locking mechanisms).

  5. Load items strategically: When loading items into the cargo box, follow these tips:

    • Place heavier items on the bottom and distribute the weight evenly.
    • Utilize the available space efficiently by stacking items appropriately.
    • Place fragile or delicate items in the center, surrounded by softer or sturdier items for protection.
    • Avoid overloading the cargo box or exceeding the weight capacity specified by the manufacturer.
  6. Secure the cargo: Use tie-down straps or cargo nets to secure the items inside the cargo box and prevent them from shifting during transit. This will ensure safety and prevent damage to both the cargo and your vehicle.

  7. Consider additional storage options: If you require extra storage, consider using additional accessories like rooftop bags, bike racks, or kayak mounts to accommodate specific items.

  8. Regular maintenance: Inspect your car rack and cargo box periodically to ensure they are in good condition. Check for any loose bolts, cracks, or signs of wear. Clean and dry the cargo box when needed to maintain its longevity.

Remember to always follow the manufacturer's instructions for the car rack and cargo box you choose, as each product may have specific guidelines and recommendations. Additionally, be mindful of your vehicle's weight limits and any local regulations regarding external storage on vehicles.
