Can anyone advise a reasonably priced local supplier/fitter?

Use - to take bike rack and eventually to tow a dinghy on a trailer....

The "platform" style bike racks are , to me, the best way to transport bikes. Got our towbar fitted by toomeys when we bought the car though, so cant assist there.
The racks are more expensive and are a bit more difficult to store, although Thule do do an excellent folding one

Digby trailers in Southend / Rochford. The guy who owns it lives opposite me and they have been around for many years. Think he has sold up now and only works a couple of days a week but the company is still going full time under new owners.

re Thule bike rack- I have one of these for approx 8 years . We have NEVER scratched the bikes when using this (race bikes -thin tyres, and mountain bikes- thick tyres, wide handle bars , and have never scaratched the car or had any 'moments' Its easy to store as you can simply hang it on the garage wall . It can also pivo so you can still open the boot (just) while it has bike on it
