most modern towbars now just simply bolt on anyway mate ,and at worst depending which make may need a little cutout from rear bumper to accomodate !!!!!!!!

would it not be easier to fit yourself ???... also the wiring isnt too difficult to do either ..

if not am sure most garages will do this for the cost of an hour or so,s labour

Fitting one to the Santa Fe is pretty straightforward, and you shouldn't need to make any cutouts in the bumper.

Last one that I did was simple enough, removable swan neck so it's not stuck out of the back all the time (you can still see the receptor when the neck is removed).

Electrics are either plug in or splice and should take about half an hour, however I'm not a fan of scotch locks and prefer the joins to be soldered, and as it's an MoT testable item now I wanted it doing properly. Port Sunlight Trailers (in New Ferry) charged me 20 which I thought was extremely reasonable for a professional job.
