How much does a trailer hitch installation cost?
A trailer hitch installation at Torklift Central starts at just $250 depending on the brand of trailer hitch you choose and the style that works best for you.
Aren’t their cheaper options for tow hitch installation available?
You bet! But something you get with Torklift that you won’t get anywhere is a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty, confidence you are working with a well-established business that will be here another 45 years and expertise in wiring – you do not want to trust your trailer wiring or hitch wiring to an amateur. Trailer hitch wiring done wrong can fry your car’s electrical system. You also have confidence you are given tow hitch options that won’t hang below your bumper – you didn’t invest in your vehicle only to add a giant hunk of metal hanging off the rear-end. You also get quality after care. Need your hitch touched up after miles and miles on the road to keep it fresh? Just stop in.
Ever wondered how to install a trailer hitch?
It really depends. For cars and SUVs, typically it involves carefully removing the bumper, tail-lights and temporary detachment of the wire harnesses. Our house brand - EcoHitch line for cars and SUVs is specially designed to be as hidden as possible as opposed to other brands that tend to hang below the rear bumper of the vehicle causing a loss of ground clearance that detracts from the visual appearance of your vehicle. With the EcoHitch line you also get the highest hitch ratings for towing and carrying without the requirement of unsightly fabric support straps that run from your hitch to your trunk.
For trucks, tow hitch installation is a little more straight forward. It usually involves removing the existing hitch if there is one, following a direct bolt-on install. On the occasion that custom work is needed – no problem. As the only licensed trailer hitch manufacturer who is also an installer in the United States, we have engineers on-site to ensure the best fitting hitch is designed for your truck. We offer many trailer hitch brands but recommend our house brand SUPER HITCH® in most instances because it is a direct bolt-on install that does not result in loss of ground clearance plus it is so beefy you won’t see higher weight ratings than this coming in at 30,000 pounds towing and 3,000 tongue weight. Don’t need that much hitch? No worries – we have everything in between ranging from light duty tow hitches to heavy duty tow hitches.
Can I install a trailer hitch myself?
Yes you absolutely can! All Torklift hitches are designed for simple DIY install and we are happy to sell them directly to you at our store or online where you can have them shipped directly to you with free freight.
