As of now the best way to get Racks, Hitches, Parts and Service is to come INTO the shop to make a plan. We ARE open!

COVID-19 has impacted nearly every person and business around the world. Rack N Road is no exception. Customer demand for Racks & Trailer hitches has increased dramatically, and we're doing everything possible to assess, educate and install products on all our guests' vehicles quickly.

The supply chain is broken. Currently our manufacturers (Thule, Kuat, Yakima, CURT, etc.) pipeline is severely backlogged. Even when the product hits the road to us from our manufacturers there are massive shipping delays via the delivery providers.

We are doing our best to come up with a "plan b" based on availability and customer deadline.

This has resulted in… Being severely behind on email replies and returning voicemails. Our current response time can be up to 48-72 hours. Due to the supply line being broken every customer solution is taking 3-4 longer than normal.

But we will do everything we can to help!

On another note we as a business have a decreased staff due to COVID-19. This creates longer than usual phone, in store and email response times. We are hiring and training as fast as possible. To protect our employees and our customers, we are practicing social distancing and enhanced cleaning in our retail stores, which can further reduce our response times.

At Rack N Road, we pride ourselves on providing the best customer experience—always have, always will. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and as always, thanks for your business and loyalty!

This too shall pass, and we'll be all the stronger for it.

Awesome friendly and helpful staff. They did a great job of ordering the hitch I needed for my car, scheduling the appointment for installation, and installing the hitch. They honor their appointments and have a great sense of how long work will take. They said an hour, and meant it...

This is a very good shop. They stock a lot, so it will probably be one-stop-shopping for you. Or, if you're like me and you have a mish-mash of Yakima parts dating from 1988 to more recent acquisitions... they will keep it all going and fitting your vehicle...

They carry primarily Thule and Yakima accessories besides all of the installations they do for hitches, racks, and carriers for vehicles. I needed a Saris locking pin. I was referred here by Mike's Bikes in San Rafael. They were able to order it for me and I got a 10% Yelp check-in discount. I also picked up an extender rod for my wife's bike which will come in handy. They informed me of a 20% sale on that item which wins them points. I'm glad I know about this store in case I ever have any needs from them in the future.
