Towbar Fitting Costs: What You May Need to Know?

Remember adding a towbar and the electrics will give you such versatility so you can get more enjoyment out of your car.

Here at Telford Towbars, your safety is our priority. That is why we prefer you to get your towbar fitted in the hands of our specialists.

Towbar fitting costs vary; that is why all the prices are broken down for you on our website, or you can speak to one of our team members.

One of the main factors affecting the cost is the type of vehicle you have. Different manufacturers use various fixing methods, and these all add to the cost.

At Telford Towbars, we do three different types of towbar fitting, and these are:

Choose from three types of Towbars:

1. Detached

  • Suitable for vehicles with reversing sensors
  • In most instances, the system is completely invisible once the neck is removed
  • Compatible with AL-KO and other friction style stabilisers
  • Allows free access to the rear of the vehicle
  • Lockable with a set of two keys provided
  • Storage bag provided for safekeeping once next is removed

2. Flange

  • Popular in the UK
  • It can be used with accessories such as bumper guard and tow-steps
  • Tow ball height can be adjusted on some commercial vehicles
  • Capable of using accessories like some models of cycle carriers whilst towing

3. Swan Neck

  • Compatible for use with AL-KO stabiliser without the requirements of a replacement ball
  • Less likely to affect reversing sensors
  • Not compatible with common accessories such as bumper protectors or tow-steps
  • It cannot be used for a cycle carrier whilst towing at the same time
  • More aesthetically pleasing than a flange style towbar


Another essential for a towbar fitting is the electric kit.

This increases the towbar fitting cost, and we offer the best kits for reliability and endurance.

We can advise you or choose which one is the best for your use and your type of vehicle. Telford towbars will not let you leave our workshop without your electrics being legally compliant for whatever you want to use it for.

Towbar fitting costs vary according to your type of vehicle; it doesn’t always mean the bigger your car, the more expensive it will be.

Again, we always make sure that whatever your vehicle model, we are compliant with each individual manufacture and will not affect your vehicle’s warranty.

Let’s explain our Electrics:

  • 7-pin Vehicle Specific Single Electrics

When you are towing a standard trailer or have a lighting board attached and even a bike carrier, a 7-pin vehicle specific kit will enable all of your light functions for this job. A 7-pin Vehicle Specific Single Electrics kit provides all of the basic legal lighting requirements for towing and harnesses perfectly with your car. We never fit by-pass or universal electrics to your vehicle!

  • 13-pin Vehicle Specific Electrics

You will need a 13-pin Vehicle Specific Electrics kit for towing a caravan because it provides all of the legal lighting requirements for towing, as well as powering the electrics inside your caravan. Most caravans manufactured after January 2009 will have 13-pin electrics and will also connect to your reverse lights whilst providing a full power supply inside your caravan. Please note that if you have the older 12n 12s style electrics, we will still fit the latest electrics to your vehicle and simply provide a 12n 12s to 13 pin adapter.

If you are still unsure about what electrics to use for your towbar fitting, then please don’t hesitate to call us on  +44 (0)1952 608750

Booking is simple you can call us on  +44 (0)1952 608750

Excellent service fitting a detachable towbar & electrics to my Skoda Kodiaq.
Friending staff who explained the workings
Good price, quick fitting and a free loan car whilst the job was being done.
Would recommend to others looking for similar work to be done.
