Cost of a tow bar

Can anyone enlighten me as to the approximate cost of getting a tow bar fitted to an Opel Zafira. I have no idea, CHF 200, 300, 400, 500 or more!!!

Re: Cost of a tow bar

do you already have the hook and just need it fitting? if not then there are at least 3 different (priced)ones available....

you also need to have it tested by the mfk people and added to your vehicle fzg. ausweis.

Re: Cost of a tow bar

I can't say for an Opel, but for a Renault, if you get a manufacturer fitted one (i.e. franchised garage) we have been quoted GBP 200-GBP 500 in the UK or GBP 100-GBP 200 for a third party one. In CH, we were quoted CHF 800 for a manufacturer fitted one.

Re: Cost of a tow bar

Had a new one fitted to a new Subaru Forester for my son. Cost was
Sfr 600.
This was installed as an after thought. Had already taken delivery of the car then decided to add the towbar. SFR 600 was a complete new installation .. Electrics , tow bar assembly , lights etc, etc... and was done at the garage..

Re: Cost of a tow bar

I considered this when I was looking for a bike carrier and it can work out remarkably expensive: you need the electrics wiring available on your car, tow-bar assembly, number plate with lights fitted. Of course this has to be installed by a "swiss-professional" for insurance and "safety" reasons.

I don't know the cost for your vehicle, but make sure the price you are given is the whole deal....

This does not include wiring harness and plug nor fitting and testing.

A Opel garage price should be everything inclusive, well the subaru garage price was, when we had ours fitted.
