At Shop 1 Auto we are a leading distributor for Thule, Rhino Rack, ProRack and Rola roof racks. We carry in stock over 500 hardware kits which makes us one of the few roof rack stores in Sydney most likely to be able to supply cross bars for your car, ute, van or 4wd from stock. For many vehicles there is often a wide choice of racks available. We can use our experience to help you select a rack that most suits your priorities whether that be function, aesthetics, budget, versatility or even colour. There is no one best rack or roof rack system for all vehicles so let us help you work out the most suitable racks for your requirements.
Some racks can be easily fitted by following the manufacturers' instructions where as others may require a permanent installation by a skilled fitter. Either way we are please to offer a roof rack fitting service by our technicians at competitive rates.

The fitting of towbars has become increasing technical over the last 5 to 10 years and tow bar fitting has in many cases become a specialist field. New vehicles can have fully integrated electronics and computer systems, multiplex wiring and LED tail lights. On many vehicles you have to be very careful where and how you make your trailer lighting connections to prevent expensive damage to the vehicle. At Shop1auto we have excellent communication channels with other tow bar installers in Australia and Europe as well as with Australian tow bar manufacturers and auto electricians so that we can continuously research electrical requirements of vehicles and find the most cost effective way of dealing with them.
Towbars themselves can range quite widely in price and rating. At Shop1auto we fit Hayman Reese standard tow bars and hitch bars. Prices range from around $375 to $1300 depending on the complexity of the bar and vehicle electrical system. But what ever the price you can be assured we have tried to make the fitting as economical as possible for you. Fitting times vary from an hour up to 5 hours for the more challenging jobs. We will give you an indication of expected time on booking or when you call for a quote. For more details on towbars and towing accessories please visit our tow bar page.
The days of the old a-frame bike carrier are numbered thanks to the amount of work done by companies like Thule and Rhino Rack to produce the ultimate in bike carrying solutions.
