Things to consider when buying a towbar

  • Is your vehicle a Japanese import or a NZ new car?What make, model and year is your vehicle? Is your vehicle 4WD or 2WD?
  • What do you want to tow with the vehicle and what is your tow rating for the vehicle?
  • Do you require wiring for lights for your towbar? 
  • Is your car a commercial or a standard vehicle?

This depends on the vehicle type, we normally allow half a day, exact fitting times will be given when you book the vehicle in.

Can the tongue be detached?
Yes, in some models the tongue can be detached.

Can I tow more than it says in the handbook?
No, you can only tow what the load label on the towbar states as a maximum both braked and un braked.

Do you cut my bumper to fit the towbar?
On some models this is required to achieve a good result. It also allows ample ground clearance and safety. This would be discussed when you booked your car in.
