A bicycle can be placed on the roof rack, or you can purchase a bicycle accessory that lets you mount on the rear. Fasteners let you secure your goods when traveling. Avoid overloading your car as this can lead to accidents, or you can lose part of your goods.
Cargo nets help secure your cargo firmly to the roof rack. They come with hooks which you fasten on your crossbars. Cargo nets prevent small goods and bulky shaped objects from falling. Most cargo nets are made from strong polythene which is last longs. They are usually very easy to mount.

Carrying heavy goods can be risky especially when you do emergency brakes. There is the risk of the goods slipping to the front and destroying your windshield. Load stops act prevent these from happening.
Other than a cargo net you can use cargo straps to secure your goods to the vehicle. Straps vary from heavy-duty straps made of nylon to straps with locks included. The type of goods you are strapping will to determine the kind of strap that you use. Carry extra straps in case the goods become loose on the way.
You can add more bolts on the crossbars to ensure you get more space for fasteners. The steel bolts are easy to install and you can use hook fasteners on them.
When you have a closed cargo carrier, you can place locks on your carrier. This prevents theft when you travel into a public place. Locks also prevent the risk of losing your goods when you are traveling.
You can either mount your bike on the roof rack or get yourself a bicycle rack that attaches to the rear. The benefit of a bicycle rack is that you free up space for other goods, but it may hinder your visibility especially when it comes to the rear mirror.
