SEAT Ireland launches roof box rental service

SEAT Ireland has launched a roof box rental service, available to SEAT customers across its 23-retailer network, writes Trish Whelan.

The service provides the brand’s customers with a roof box and roof rails which will be fitted at their local retailer and offers SEAT customers a convenient travel solution that is ideal for those planning a staycation in Ireland this summer.

A qualified SEAT technician will fit the roof box in under half an hour while the customer waits. The roof box can be fitted on all SEAT models and offers customers up to 460 litres of storage in addition to their boot space. It’s designed with simple loading and unloading in mind; with the roof box being able to be opened on both sides. Customers can also be reassured that it comes with a central locking system that locks the box securely in three places.

SEAT Ireland say the purpose of the campaign is to make their customers’ staycations in Ireland more affordable. For example, the seven-seater SUV SEAT Tarraco roof box and bars normally retail at €1,087 but are now available to rent for a fraction of the price.

John Cunningham, Head of Aftersales at SEAT Ireland says roof boxes are often used once or twice a year for staycations and are difficult to store, hence their solution for customers to avail of a rental service. They can be used for holidays at home or abroad with installation as part of the rental.
