Default Hitches for a honda civic?

I am wanting to rent a tailer to hook onto the back of my honda civic. I dont have a hitch. Is there any company that would install it for me and have the trailer included in the price? I was told that uhaul would install a hitch for me for free if I rent a trailer but I dont think that is an option anymore.

Are you kidding? You can't tow anything with one of those cars. Honda doesn't recommend, so nobody will install a hitch because it would be an insurance risk.

The Honda civic is not designed to tow anything. It can, or course, be towed.If you look here http://trailmanor.com/WebDocs/Campin...FQO2FQodHzLzFQ under Honda, you will notice the civic isn't even listed.Or the official web page for Honda, which says:Tow Capacity (Standard)Towing Not Recommended Tow Capacity (Maximum)Towing Not Recommendedhttp://autos.yahoo.com/honda_civic_h...v-specs/?p=all

I think a civic can only tow like 1000 lbs, and a small trailer would be like 750lbs... so its not really worth it. dont put the stress on your car. I have a hitch on my acura but the previous owner put it on to tow a little sail boat.
