Towbars a fitting sales opportunity, says Bosal

mounted-bosal-towbarDemand for towbars has increased significantly over the past few years, and with its narrow profit margins offers excellent upsell opportunity for garages and workshops, explains Bosal Automotive & Industrial Components.

Karl Ridings, Sales Director at Bosal Automotive & Industrial Components explains: “As a hugely growing market, there is no question that towbars present garages with an excellent growth opportunity. What we would recommend first is that all fitters are NTTA-approved, as Bosal is, in order to provide and fit fully type approved OE towbars.”

He continued: “Vehicle specific kits are now in some cases more expensive than the bar itself and will require special tools to install these on a vehicle.  There is very much a market for garages to be able to fit a towbar to an older vehicle with simple wiring and we would highly recommend they follow fitting instructions which are available in the Bosal web catalogue. Our towbars also come with a lifelong guarantee and our extensive range with more than 2,000 active towbar references means we can offer tailored solutions to optimise business for garage owners, while offering them a high level of customer support. This coupled with the fact that we are talking about a sustainable market with narrow profit margins means garages and workshops have a golden growth opportunity available to them now to help boost their sales”.
