Halfords are offering any roofbox instore for 1/2 price when bought with ANY roofbars. I already had the roofbars and wanted the Thule 780 (480litre) which instore is £349.99, which when bought with the cheaest set of roofbars makes the price for the roofbox £174.99! The cheapest roof bars are £34.99 and can be sold/kept depending on requirements. Even if you take the total price of £209.98 this is still very cheap for a new Thule 780. Cheapest online else where that I could find was £270.

NOT ONLINE as far as I know

thats decent! much lower than cheapest online.

does this come in bits so you can get it home or do you have to fit it your roof there?

do they fit to any roof bars?

cheers

The roofbox was ready assembled and has quick mount roof bar fittings as standard it took about 3 minutes to put on my car.

I dont think there is much else for this price and quality that compares at the moment, 2nd hand ones on ebay go for nearly this much!

EDIT: Correction one sold on ebay for £216 last month second hand but not used.

Brilliant. Just what I need. Is it nationwide?

The Halfords website recommends either Thule Roof Bars 860 Aerobars or Thule Roof Bars 760. I am a complete newbie. What size roof box would be best with these? I own a Skoda Fabia...

I work in Halfords and sold the Atlantis 200 today with this deal. In store the prices are £449 (1/2 PRICE WITH ANY ROOF BARS) and the 780 was just over £530(again half that if buying roof bars)

I cant understand where/how you get the instore price at 349.99 for the atlantis 780, as even the website price quotes the instore price as £529.99 .....unless you reserved and collected it online at 339 and thge store offered you the coupon voucher?

I'm sure this wasn't procedure but fair play, as the 50% off roof box is in-store only offer

760 will do grand, as these are just square bars. you will also need a footback (crica £65) and a fitting kit (circa £30).

For a fabia, I'd recommend the halfords 340l roofbox as any bigger and it will jsut look silly on such a small hatch, plus you'll get overhang on a larger box which some european countries are picky about if travelling abroad and strictly speaking it s not recommended

Why do people always put these on their cars the wrong way round?????

halfords instore pirecs compared to online are ridiculous on these.

One more question, you wouldn't happen to know how long this deal will last do you? I may not be able to get into a Halfords store for a few weeks.

Tried Halfords in Stoke-on-Trent today......

They have not heard of the deal


Lenny63 can you elaborate on the deal?

Of course

the deal went live on Tuesday 2nd February. The offer is as follows; buy any roof bars in stores (even the cheapest of the cheapest) and get any roof box half price (of its marked price)

I only work there prt time now one day a week and I too had a customer wodnering about the deal. It invovled me doing a little dig into the promo document but it turns out there is a voucher sheet that all halfords stores should print and keep at cash desk. you sub total the bars and box, eneter in the reduction manually (under a coupon on their systems) and take off half the price of the box. then the voucher is scanned and it allows the debit at the till.

Strictly speaking, i think what the OP has done is reserve the box online at the web price (339.99) and go and pick it up in store-then has seen the offer and the store ahs then used the voucher off the web order price rather than the actualy instore price. As I said, strictly speaking this is not correct as the 50% off a roof box offer is instore only therefore in-store prices apply to the discount.

I'd say its jsut been someone who wasnt overly aware of the offer and the chances of getting the same are very small, as I myself would be on the ball about deals and ways around deals (hence UKHD) but again...it would be worth a try reserving the box onliner first and see what the store say

hope this helps

Just for info the roofbox was £349.99 instore and that is where I saw the offer not online, I did not reserve it before hand as I was only popping in to buy some other bits. The Atlantis 780 is £349.99 in Grimsby store and there was 2 left after I bought mine. The 440 litre version was £299.99 and there were several left of these too.

Update..

1st store did not have a clue about the offer.
Phoned 2nd store (3 miles away from 1st store), 'Yes sir 1/2 price box if bought with a set of roof bars', Can I reserve online and collect with the deal? 'Yes sir'.

So reserved online Atlantis 780 and went to collect.....
Asked to confirm the price with the £35 roof bars and they came back with 1/2 full store price!

Pointed out that should be the online price -50% but they said its 50% off the store price!
So I told them that I rang them the day before and confirmed the price, the assistant went away for a couple of minutes and came back scanning in a discount coupon.
She scanned in a £120 off and I said it should be £170 off, she re-scanned a 50% off coupon and the price came to £205.xx.

So if you want one then try it, if they wont honour the offer then walk away and google for a better offer........

Where do you see the Atlantis 780 online for £350?

As far as I can see it's £529.99!!:
