The abovementioned vehicles when purchased new from a dealership may not have their vehicle plugs wired to Australian configurations, causing flickering LED lights on the float, no indicators or brake lights and brakes to lock up.  It is critical that before hiring the float, that you check with your dealership or auto-electrician that your European car has been wired correctly for towing.  A European vehicle converter plug is available for $25 hire charge.  Please let us know at time of booking if you have a European vehicle to ensure the converter is available.

We have certainly tried to think of everything to make our client’s lives easier when hiring our floats.

Our floats are fully comprehensively insured as hire floats. $10 million Public Liability is held.
