If you own a car that doesn't have a tow bar, you may not be aware of how useful this piece of kit can be. A tow bar is a metal accessory which is attached to the rear part of your vehicle's chassis and is used to attach a range of other vehicles and trailers to your car. Below is a guide to three times when fitting a tow bar to your car will be essential.
When on a road-trip adventure
Australia has some of the most beautiful scenery and oceans in the world. If you are planning a road-trip around the country so you can explore everything it has to offer, a tow bar can be very useful. A tow bar will allow you to attach a caravan to your car. A caravan can reduce the cost of your trip as you will not need to pay for accommodation. A caravan will give you the freedom to choose where you want to stop and sleep as you make your way across the country. A caravan also allows you to bring all of the comforts of home with you when you hit the road.
When investing in a small boat
If you are planning to purchase a small boat so you can enjoy some deep sea fishing, you will need to invest in a trailer and a tow bar so you can transport it from your home to the ocean. Doing so will save you money as you will not need to pay any fees to keep it moored in the harbour. It also means you can work on your boat in the garage on your property if you wish to carry out any modifications or repairs.
When moving house
The days when an Australian family would spend their entire lives living in one property are over. These days, it isn't uncommon for a family to move house several times over a period of years as family members move follow their jobs during a relocation, to be near older relatives or to ensure their kids live in a good school district. By fitting a tow bar to your car, will be able to attach a trailer to the rear of the vehicle. A trailer is useful for moving larger items which won't fit inside the vehicle during the move.
