  • Where do you ship to?

    We ship all over North America. Standard shipping rates for the continental US is $199. For delivery to Canada and Alaska (or Mexico and Hawaii), please contact us for more details.

  • Do you offer custom paint jobs for the boxes?

    Yes, we offer custom paint jobs through a local trusted paint shop. Send us your color code, VIN or creative suggestion and we will take care of the rest!

  • How close to the roof does the box sit?

    The Touring model has tunnels in the lower half for the crossbars to pass through. For these models the box sits about 2'' (5cm) below the crossbars. The distance between the car roof and the box is subsequently determined by the crossbars used.

    The Sport models have open section cut-outs and will sit at the same height, or slightly below, the crossbars. 

  • How fast can I drive with a box on the roof?

    We recommend staying below 75 mph. However, the answer depends on the type of crossbars used and how strong they are. The recommended top speed might seem low, but keep in mind that the impact on your car's handling and driving characteristics increases non-linearly with increased speeds.

  • Can I use the same box on more than one car?

    Yes, in most cases the same box will fit other cars. Contact us today to learn more.

  • Can I drive through the cars wash with the box installed?

    The answer is: maybe. In some cases the car wash recognizes accessories such as roof boxes and bike racks. However, some do not!

    Please ask the attendant to find out.

  • What do I do if I lose my keys?

    Reach out to us and we will gladly get you a new set of keys.

  • What do I do with the box when it's not in use?

    If you have a garage or car port we recommend the Skiguard's own ceiling mounted box lift. If you don't have a garage you can lean the box against a wall, sitting on the rear end with the lid closed. Make sure to put something soft and non-scratching under it.
