Car Luggage rack: Evaluates the load and respects the road code
When you leave for a long vacation or just a relaxing weekend you have to pay attention how you charge your car. The limit is not your car rack but the rules of the Highway Code.
First of all, then, evaluate the load. Each car carrier has its own load capacity that should not be exceeded, respect it!
You must therefore, refer to the permissible weight limit that you can check on the registration of your car, check!
If you decided to carry heavy, long and wide objects, remember that there are specific articles of the Highway Code (61 and 164) that put stakes on the measures. The load cannot be fixed in such a way that it risks falling or dispersing, it must not limit the visibility and freedom of the motorist's movements. Lighting fixtures must be clearly visible to other drivers driving on the road and your vehicle must be stable. Also remember that there are certain limits on the projection of the materials you have loaded in the car, both in length and width. Another element that you should not underestimate is the wind: your car with the luggage rack has a wired trim, in the sense that the tail is higher than the muzzle. It is very easy, especially if you drive in a sustained way, that the air can slip under your car and that therefore there is a reduction in the precision of driving. So be careful
La Prealpina guarantees you with its luggage racks, safety and robustness, but you must not forget the code of the road and common sense! Have a nice trip.

Check up the car
Did you get your bags in the trunk and fixed the most on the car rack? Great! We remind you, however, that first of all, when you're about to leave, maybe at Christmas or more simply in summer holidays, you have to make a quote check up the car. It does not take long to turn a beautiful holiday from opportunities for relaxation and serenity into something much less pleasant, perhaps paying a salty sanction or waiting for the wrecker on the roadside. We recommend that you follow these directions.
Tires Go to the mechanic and make sure the tire pressure goes well and that your tires are ok.
The revision; Are you sure your review hasn't expired? Driving a car in a non-standard state can bring you serious problems not only with the police but also with your insurance.
Bring your car to the mechanic and check that it has checked some key aspects:
the engine oil, which should be replaced in case you have to grind many kilometers,
the coolant: think about how many hours you can stay in the tail with the engine on,
the brake pads, penalty the deterioration of the discs. Brake pads must be checked from time to time by checking their status with the view.

The green Insurance Card, the European form of friendly finding, sunglasses and maybe spare glasses if you have a vision problem. Remember the tickets, the money, the travel voucher and the credit cards and, perhaps, a few loose pennies always useful and convenient to pay the toll.

System the seats in the correct position and check the correct functioning of the safety belts. Fix your baggage at the bottom of the loading compartment and behind the backrest. Put in the car rack what should not be on hand during the trip, what you seem less necessary at the moment

How to distribute baggage and pets
Have you ever wondered where it is best to place your luggage? First of all you should consider the fact that objects that have more weight (such as suitcases or boxes) should be placed on the ground of your vehicle, near the axle of the wheels; Above them, you can arrange your suitcases with less weight. It would be good to be able to tie together the suitcases trying to immobilize them.
Do you always bring your tablet or phone or laptop with you? Have you ever, for example, put your mobile phone over the seat? If so, know that you made a mistake. In fact, even these objects should be placed on the ground of the car or in a safe place so that they do not become a blunt object or even lethal in case of strong braking or accident, because they could be projected in the air to a strong Speed. Objects blown up in the air can reach increasing weights in proportion to the speed of impact. Always for this reason, if you travel with children, remember to put their toys in a bag and store it in the trunk or in the car rack so as to prevent their toys from spreading on the seats
About your inseparable pets, the road code states that it is strictly forbidden to transport more than one pet and in any case to prevent or make driving unsafe. If you want to carry more pets, you must use the cages or containers or place them in the rear compartment in the driving seat divided by a network. You can then carry your only trust in the trunk or back seat if it does not hinder driving. If you have several four-legged friends you need to equip yourself with cages for cars: You can also place them in the trunk or rear seats just in case you can fix a network in the car that prevents them from disturbing you in the guide. If you use skis, in the case of a winter excursion in the mountains, you can use the car carrier for the prealpina rear enclosures; Positioned posteriorly they will be less friction and will be less exposed to the wind.
For extra baggage You can use the different models of La Prealpina car carriers: If you want your clothes and objects to remain dry and clean use the box. Its aerodynamic shape is less friction and preserves your suitcases from wind, rain and other climatic disturbances.
