Towbar Fitting and Towbar Installation in Melbourne & Dandenong
Choosing The Right Towbar Installation in Melbourne
Towbar Installation Cost
The cost of your towbar installation will depend on a few factors, one of which is the brand of the towbar. We supply Hayman Reese, Redback, and Boronia towbars, which can cost anywhere between $300 to $1,500. Thus, the installation price will depend on the brand and the towing capacity. Towbars can support light, medium, and heavy loads, ranging from 1,000kg to 2,000kg capacity.
Frequently Asked Towbar Installation Questions
Can I legally fit my own towbar?
Yes, you can. We advised that you seek professional installation services; however, if you purchase a 2nd hand towbar, we will not be able to fit it for you, as there is no way to be sure of the history and condition.
Can a towbar go on any car?
No, they can only be fitted on cars that are designed to carry loads.
Do you need a certificate for a towbar?
No, you do not need a certificate.
Do you need electrics on a towbar?
Not usually. You will need electrics for nighttime use if your license plate isn’t visible.
How long does it take to fit a towbar?
It depends. Generally it should take one days work, therefore, if you drop off your car in the morning we’ll have it fitted same day. However, this is dependant on whether the towbar you need is available, if not, it will need to be ordered in.
Do I need to tell my insurance about a towbar?
You should call your insurance company to discuss your new towbar, as we often get asked whether it will affect the warranty. Thus, this usually depends on your policy, so it’s best to ensure.
Standard Duty – Class 2
Standard towbars have a bolt-on tongue and are typically used for ‘Standard Duty’ towing up to 1250 kg. All towbars have to comply with Australian Design Rules ADR63.
Heavy Duty – Class 4
Heavy Duty Towbars, also known as Hitch Receivers, are suitable for ‘Heavy Duty’ towing and have a square hole to accommodate either a removable tow ball or weight distribution hitch. Heavy Duty towbars have a towing capacity of 1500kg to 4000kg.
Weight Distribution Hitches
Weight distribution hitches evenly distribute weight over the entire towing vehicle and trailer area, resulting in a more controlled and stable drive.
We offer a comprehensive range of towbar accessories. These include tow balls, sway controllers, electronic brake controllers, wiring adaptors and sockets, hitch receiver plugs, and security locking options.
