It always feels like a battle when you try to pack your car. There are a lot of things you need to bring with, but there’s a finite amount of space. Unfortunately, cars can’t stretch like suitcases, so it’s tough to figure out what to do when space runs out.

You need to find ways to maximize your cargo space, though. There are plenty of spacious vehicles out there, but how can we use that space to its maximum potential. Holiday road trips are right around the corner, so now is the time to start thinking about how to use your space.

How To Utilize Your Cargo Space

The first thing you should do is plan your trip. If you’re worried about space, then taking the time to map everything you will save a lot of time. Creative placement of different items is almost a necessary skill these days. You need to be very particular with how you pack things to get the most out of your car. More ambitious car packers will even utilize the space underneath their seats to fit even more into their cars.

Some people might need extra space that they can’t find in their car. If your car has roof racks or rails, then you can add some cargo boxes up there. This will help you carry larger items that you need to bring as well. You can also buy storage boxes that fit on the back bumper if you’re worried about the aerodynamics of your car. There are also storage containers that can fit over your headrest to give you a little bit more space on the inside.
