Towbar & Towing Electrics Warranties

Lifetime Warranty

Towbars that we supply have a manufacturers lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects. This guarantee covers the fixed parts of the towbar assembly, and not moving parts such as detachable necks, or other accessories. In the unlikely event that your towbar develops a fault caused by a manufacturing defect, please contact us and we will liase with the towbar manufacturer on your behalf.

This guarantee applies only to the vehicle that the towbar was originally fitted and is not transferable between owners.

Please note that while your towbar will be finished in a protective paint/powder coat that is designed to protect it from corrosion. Due to the exposed position of a towbar on the rear of your vehicle, the towbar is subject to an extremely harsh environment due to it being located 'under body'. Due to the high potential of stone chips, exhaust fume build-up etc; we cannot offer any guarantee on how long the towbar will remain free from rust. The protective finish needs to be checked and regularly maintained to prevent corrosion.

The lifetime guarnantee does not cover towballs which are considered a wear and tear item, and may need to be replaced from time to time.

12 Month Warranty

When we fit your towbar we offer a 12-month guarantee on the installation of your towbar, electrics and other parts that are not covered by the manufacturer's warranty. We shall free of charge repair any faults that appear, and you report to us during this time.

Our fitter will test your towbar installation at the time of installation. However, in the unlikely event that you discover a fault with your towbar or towbar wiring, you should inform us immediately. We will arrange for our fitter to call out at the earliest available time. Please note that if we discover that any fault is not related to our installation, there is a £65 + vat call out fee. This fee is simply to cover our costs in coming out to you

You should allow at least three working days for us to arrange a call out. We do not offer a same day service under any circumstances. For this reason, it is important that you thoroughly test the compatibility of your trailer or caravan with your towbar installation before planning a holiday or trip away.

 If you choose to have work carried out by another company, we will not pay any charges from any 3rd party unless we agree on them in advance. If we agree to pay any costs, we will only pay for like for like replacement of any parts.

In respect of all goods manufactured and supplied to us by third parties we will pass on to you (in so far as possible) the benefit of any warranty given to us by such third parties. We will (on request) supply to you details of the terms and conditions of such warranty and copies of any relevant product information sheets, technical data sheets or product leaflets issued by third parties and you shall be solely responsible to the entire exclusion of us for complying with all of these.

Our liability under this Condition shall be to the exclusion of all other liability to you whether contractual, tortious or otherwise for defects in the goods and/or cost of labour or for any loss or damage to or caused by the goods and all other conditions, warranties, stipulations or other statements whatsoever concerning the goods, whether express or implied, by statute, at common law or otherwise howsoever, are hereby excluded in particular (but without limitation of the foregoing) we grant no warranties regarding the fitness for purpose, performance, use, nature or merchantable quality of the goods, whether express or implied, by statute at common law or otherwise howsoever.

Extended Warranties

Outside of the initial 12 month warranty period, we will still call out to repair any faults that may occur. However, we charge a £65+vat call out fee, and also, the cost of any parts that need to be replaced.

When booking online, we offer two and three year extended warranties that you can purchase. If you purchase the extended warranty, we will call out and repair any faults and replace any parts free of charge within the extended warranty period in the same way as we would for the 12 month warranty outlined above.

Please note that extended warraties can only be purchased at the time of ordering, or at the time of towbar fitting. They can not be added after the date that the towbar is fitted.

Warranty Exclusions

Any of our warranties do not cover faults or damage caused by improper use or wear and tear from normal use.

You should be careful not to overload your towbar, as this is the most common cause of damage.

Detachable Towbar Necks

We get phone calls nearly every day from people who think their detachable towbar neck is faulty. It is very rare that these necks have a fault, it's just that the neck wasn't released from the car properly last time it was used. It simply needs to be reset, and you can view a video guide here: https://www.towbarexpress.co.uk/reset-a-detachable-neck/

Statutory Rights

This Guarantee does not confer any rights other than those expressly set out above and does not cover any claim for indirect or consequential loss or damage. Nothing in this Guarantee in intended to limit or exclude the liability of Towbar Express for anything which it is not permitted to exclude or limit under English law.

This Guarantee is offered as an extra benefit to and does not affect your statutory rights.
