Drivers are becoming more savvy about protecting there equipment too. It is no longer satisfactory to throw a tarp over luggage, people want to protect their often expensive ski gear from the elements.
Melbourne, VIC (PRWEB) June 17, 2009
Aftermarket auto accessory retailer, All Vehicle Accessories (AVA), have recently stocked up on an array of storage accessories, specifically designed to make snow travel safer, easier and more comfortable for the 2009 ski season. Their range of roof top luggage solutions now caters to all manner of snow travel, from day trips to season trips.
Melissa Sangster, owner of AVA explains, "We realised at the end of the season last year that there was a definite trend towards robust snow luggage solutions. People do not just want roof racks anymore, they are thinking about comfort, style and safety too."
Safety is a real issue for snow travel on two fronts. Obviously driving safety is a major concern. "Ensuring the aero-dynamics of rooftop luggage storage does not impact the balance of the vehicle is something we continue to educate drivers about," explains Sangster. "Drivers are becoming more savvy about protecting there equipment too. It is no longer satisfactory to throw a tarp over luggage, people want to protect their often expensive ski gear from the elements." This is where roof boxes can help as they fully lock all luggage away from the harsh winter elements.
While roof boxes are great for extended trips, they can be overkill for day trips and even weekenders. The range of ski racks and snowboard racks which AVA stock are the perfect alternative for these scenarios. They allow for quick attachment of skis and snowboards to the roof and then, quick and easy detachment on arrival, when fingers are cold and the anticipation to hit the slopes is high.
Roof boxes and ski racks all require roof racks as a prerequisite. Getting the correct roof rack configuration for your vehicle and snow travel purposes is a must. Consideration must be given both to maintaining driving stability and to the style of your vehicle. Most people's vehicle is the second most valuable asset they own. In today's age, style does not need to be sacrificed for function. With the massive range of roof top storage products that AVA stock, all roof racks installed at AVA are examples where function and style do work harmoniously together.
"We have changed the way we are servicing our winter snow clients in 2009" Melissa Sangster explains when discussing preparing vehicles for the snow. "One additional benefit we offer our clients is a range of fitting alternatives. We have fitting rooms at our convenient locations as well as an onsite service, where we come to our clients and install their rooftop luggage solutions at their location. This means clients can conveniently set up their vehicles for the snow, as part of their packing preparations. Others clients drop in and have it done on the way to the mountain." Melissa explains "This really has taken the stress out of those last minute preparations for everyone, making winter 100% about the snow."
