Years Of Experience
FREE SAFETY CHECK
The NTTA Free Safety Check is a visual inspection only, and not a substitute for regular maintenance & servicing but will give you an overview on the general safety aspects of your trailer. If suspect items are found, they will be highlighted and you will be given the option to have them repaired.
FREE TRAILER SAFETY CHECKS
Barnsley Towbar Centre take safety very seriously!
You may not be aware that a trailer safety campaign has been launched following the death of a three-year-old boy.
Freddie Hussey suffered fatal head injuries when a two-tonne trailer towed by a Land Rover came loose, mounted a pavement and pinned him against the wall.
Shortly after, his parents launched a campaign with the DVSA for new safety guidelines following the tragedy in January 2014. The campaign is targeting anyone towing trailers, including horse trailers, caravans and boats.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) has published guidance to help drivers check that they’re towing safely and legally. The guidance includes important information on checking:
- the towball and connections
- wheels and tyres
- lights and indicators
- loads and weight limits
Goverment information on towing with a car can be found here >>>.gov.uk
You can be fined up to £2,500, be banned from driving, and get 3 penalty points for using a vehicle in a dangerous condition!

Customer feedback . . .
"Once again I’ve experienced first class service from BTC, their help,advice and service is second to none. I recommend them for any aspect of towing. After experiencing a problem with a new car, BTC offered to speak to the dealer on my behalf and resolve the issue, I can’t thank them enough. .."
"Absolutely spot on from start to finish - BTC was recommended to me by another very good tow bar centre as "best in the country" and how right they were! - they are very professional, helpful and straight forward and did a fantastic job on my Skoda Superb, very neat job and all functioning perfectly, I am very particular and could not fault them, I do not normally leave comments but feel BTC are exceptional and I must really acknowledge that - you do not get may businesses like this these days - please use them with confidence - thank you all at BTC.."
"We recently had BTC fit a towbar & electrics to our Dodge 4x4 & we couldn't be happier. I shopped all around the Yorkshire area & BTC gave me the best quote & It was on the doorstep (it pays to keep it local). I also needed a trailer for camping & they sorted me out with a good priced fully serviced used one,which saved me having to trawl round looking for one. So we drove out of there fully kitted out & ready to go!!! All the staff were so friendly,nothing was a problem,they were so helpful & I would fully RECOMMEND BTC to anyone looking for anything to do with towing..."
