TopFit Towbars provides a mobile fitting service for all products sold on our website. Order of any product is classed as a Mobile Booking contract.
The fitting of a towbar to your vehicle will be subject to a visual inspection of your vehicle prior to the work starting. This is to ensure you have selected the correct part specifications for your vehicle. If at any point during the fitting it becomes apparent that further parts, or work are required our fitters will advise you before proceeding further. At this point you are free to request that no further work is carried out. In this situation you would only be liable for our costs incurred by us, the remaining balance would be refunded to your card used for purchase.
