Request An Installation

All of our soft and hard tonneau covers come with a comprehensive set of fitting instructions so that you are able to fit the cover yourself, however if you would prefer someone to fit the cover for you we also offer a full fitting service at our Kilsyth facility in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

1. Soft Tonneau Cover Installation for Utes fitted with Tubs:
For installation of our soft tonneau covers a booking is required. In order to make a booking we require the following vehicle information from you: Make, Model, Year of Manufacture and the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). We also require photos of the inside of your tub and the back of your vehicle. The information can be submitted to us using the form at the top of this page. Once we receive all the requested information, we will get in touch with you, confirm the price of the tonneau cover and organise a date and time with you for the installation. The installation can be paid for after the cover has been fitted, but the tonneau cover must be paid for at the time of booking.

If you have already purchased a tonneau cover from Ute Covers Direct and would just like us to fit it for you we still require all of the information mentioned above, plus your order number.

In addition to the cost of the cover, there is a charge of $180 for the installation of our soft tonneau covers. To carry out the installation we will require your Ute for about 3 to 4 hours and you will need to ensure that on arrival your tub is empty and clean so that installation can proceed. Please let us know beforehand if you have anything (such as drawers or toolboxes) that can't be removed.

Our available booking times are between 9am to 12pm & 1pm to 4pm Wednesdays and Thursdays.

If your Ute has previously had a hard lid, fiberglass lid or similar fitted, then all of the associated fittings will need to need to have been removed prior to the installation of our tonneau cover.

Please Note:

We are not able to fit our Sports Bar variant tonneau covers if your vehicle has Non-factory Sports Bars fitted or the Factory Sports bars are not still in the factory fitted location.

We do however offer installations for custom Bunji and Stretch Rope tonneau covers where we can cut the cover to fit around Non-factory Sports Bars, Factory Sports Bars that are fitted in Non-factory locations or to accommodate Ladder Racks. However, this additional work is charged out at $60 per custom bar cut in addition the installation costs. Please note: Due to the COVID-19 we are doing less custom work than usual. We will be handling these on a one by one case, so please submit the form and we will let you know as soon as possible whether or not we can complete your custom installation at this time. 


If you have previously had a Bunji or Stretch Rope tonneau cover fitted to your vehicle then the existing buttons on the side and rear of your Ute tub may not match up with the Bunji Loops / Stretch Rope fitted to our tonneau covers. In such cases we can make up a blank version of the cover and then attach the Bunji Loops / Eyelets for the Stretch Rope so that they line up with your existing buttons.

2. Soft Tonneau Cover Installation for Utes fitted with Trays:
We can make you a tonneau cover to suit your Aluminium or Steel dropside tray but we will need you to provide us with the following information: Internal Tray Length, Internal Tray Width and the Tray Wall Thickness.
