Did you know that according to the Queensland National Code of Practice for Light Vehicle Construction and Modification (NCOP), the addition of roof racks are classed as a minor modification to a vehicle? Provided the addition of the roof racks continues to meet the vehicle standards, roof racks don’t require approval from the Department of Transport and Main Roads to be installed.
Having your roof racks installed by a professional installer ensures your vehicle remains compliant with the government’s minor modification rules. Having a professional install your roof racks also ensures you don’t damage your car. If improperly fitted roof racks become loose, not only could they cause hundreds of dollars worth of damage to your vehicle or someone else’s, they could also cause a significant safety issue.
You may not be aware, if damage or an accident occurs as a result of your improperly fitted roof racks, you are legally liable for all damages and deaths as a result! We’ve all seen a motorist whose load has shifted from the roof racks, causing traffic mayhem as drivers dodge and weave through a trail of items being strewn all over the road. A very dangerous situation indeed!
Don’t put yourself in a situation where you could be held responsible for a serious accident or worse a death because you didn’t get your roof racks professionally installed.
