Outstanding customer service! These days I would say very few companies excel at customer service - in a time when web servers and outsourcing can do most of the work, it is rare. I called one week before I plan to go on vacation to get a particular cargo carrier that I was not able to find in any local store. I sppoke to a real human being who not only took my order, but assured me that it would be handled immediately to ensure that it got here in time. Within three hours I received an email that it was in stock and being prepared. Fifty minutes later I received an email from a different person saying it was shipped. The next day it was in Georgia. Phenomenal way to take care of your business. Great work!
Today we have a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta and well be test fitting the Curt 20 x 48 Cargo Carrier part number C18145. To mount the cargo carrier on our vehicle, well take the shank of the cargo carrier and fit it into the receiver on our hitch. Well line up the hitch pinholes and then well thread our anti-rattle bolt. Well use the inch wrench to tighten it down and secure our cargo carrier. Well use a clip on the other side of the pin to make sure the pin does not back all the way out. Make sure to keep in mind the location of the vehicle exhaust when loading the cargo carrier.
Today with our 2012 Volkswagen Jetta were going to be test fitting the Yakima Load Warrior Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part number Y07070. We already have our basket put together and now were ready to fit it up on top of our vehicle. First well take the basket and lay it up on top of our crossbars. Then well position it and make sure its even from left to right. Once weve done that we can we swing our hardware around and use the included T bolt and wing nut to tighten the clamps to our crossbars. With the clams tight, were ready to load our basket and hit the road.
Alright, today, on this 2011 Volkswagen Jetta were going to do a test fit of part #: y07070 from Yakima, the Load Warrior roof cargo basket. Okay, now our Jetta has already been equipped with a roof rack system with elliptical bars and as for a reference point our centers of the bars are going to be 27 and 9/16. Okay, were going to start off our test fit with the basket already assembled. We just got to place it on the roof rack, get it centered the way we wand and then we can go ahead and install the hardware. Once we get it roughly into position, well go ahead and loosely install the hardware and then make some final adjustments. And thats what it takes to install the basket on a roof rack.
Alright, today on this 2011 Volkswagen Jetta were going to do a test fit of the SportRack Aero XL Cargo Box, part number A90275. The car has already been equipped with a Thule Roof Rack System with the square load bars. Ok, a couple of quick notes about this cargo carrier is that it is designed to mount between crossbars or between 24 and 34 inches, and the maximum bar diameter will be 4 inches. We'll go ahead and start our test fit by taking the box and putting it on top of the cross rails. We'll take a few seconds to line up the holes and the cargo box to match the crossbars. Now you have a little bit adjustment from front to rear and of course you can move it left to right.
Today on this 2011 Volkswagen Jetta, we're going to do a test fit of part number 59504 from Rola. This is the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket. Now, our Jetta already has a roof rack installed on the vehicle with the elliptical bars and we have our roof basket already assembled according to instructions so what I'm going to do is just place it on the roof and install the hardware. We'll take a few seconds to make sure that the roof basket is centered on the roof rack and that the mounting pads are moved into position that we can easily attach the hardware. Our hardware is a clamp that goes through the bottom of the roof basket and basically a U-Bolt that goes underneath the crossbar. One down and three to go, we'll repeat the same process.
