Vehicle Couplings, Towbars and Towballs


Every good driver understands the vital importance of always buying quality tyres as they provide the only point on contact between a car and the surface of the road. When it comes to attaching a vehicle to a caravan or trailer, the vehicle couplings that form the only point of contact between the two should be chosen with equal care.

At ATE UK, we have a wide range of vehicle couplings available to suit every type of vehicle and virtually every possible towing scenario. We pride ourselves on the expert knowledge of our customer service team and our ability to identify and provide the exact components you need each and every time.


Quality and Surability Vehicle Couplings 

When you buy vehicle souplings from ATE UK, you can be sure your components will last. We obtain all our couplings from leading manufacturers of components for the trailer industry with an unparalleled reputation for both quality and durability.

All the items in our premium range of components are manufactured to the highest possible standards, fully type approved and are rigorously tested to ensure they are capable of meeting the most towing applications, even in the harshest of environments.

Vehicle Coupling Safety

Failure to make use of the correct vehicle couplings means your trailer or caravan will not be fully secured and could represent a potential danger to both other road users and yourself every time you get behind the wheel.

With such a wide range of options available, we fully understand that it can be extremely challenging to find the right part. Our expert team is on hand to offer you guidance and information to ensure you get the precise vehicle couplings you need.

We can also match your components with our range of towbars, trailers and accessories, all of which are manufactured to the very highest standards from accredited brands such as Brink, Bosal, Witter, Towsure and PCT.

What Vehicle Coupling Options are Available?

In addition to our standard range of vehicle couplings, we offer various specialist components available to meet specific needs. If you want to learn more, you can contact us by telephone during office hours, but if you’d rather talk face-to-face, we also have a trade counter, so you’re welcome to come and visit us in person.

Height adjustable

When towing caravans or heavy trailers, it's essential that both are level. If, for example, the rear of the tow vehicle is too high, there will be insufficient weight on the rear axle, and the caravan or trailer can begin fish-tailing if a sudden correction takes place while in motion, such as swerving to avoid a pothole or wild animal.

We have a range of height-adjustable vehicle couplings that will allow you to make the necessary adjustments to ensure both your vehicle and your trailer are optimised for travel.

Shock Absorbing

Over time, the constant thuds and bumps that are part and parcel of travelling over poorly maintained roads can lead to damage to both your vehicle and your trailer. If you regularly make long journeys, this vibration can also make you more prone to driver fatigue.

The Shocklink range of vehicle couplings make use of a combination of springs and rubber cushioning to absorb up to 70% of the trailer load. This results in a far smoother ride and dramatically reduces the chances of the trailer being damaged during a journey. You’ll also arrive at your destination feeling far less tired.

Heavy-Duty Systems

Our stock of vehicle couplings includes models suitable for domestic, commercial and military vehicles and that need to travel on public roads. We also offer a range of couplings suitable for more specialist manufacturing and agricultural vehicles that follow different regulations as they do not travel on the public highways.

Can ATE Suuply Accessories?

We stock a wide range of accessories to use in conjunction with your towbar, including spacers, drop plates, spacers and protective covers for your towball.

To prevent any issues, you should check the connection between your trailer and your vehicle before the start of every trip. If you discover you have burned out bulbs, wiring problems or any other issues, we can supply you with the spares you need to get you back on the road with the minimum of delay.

With more than twenty years of experience of distributing trailers, vehicle couplings, parts and accessories all over the world and a solid reputation for offering a reliable, speedy service that is focused on the needs of our customers, we are your one-stop shop for vehicle couplings for any make or model of commercial or domestic vehicle.
