Car Batteries

A vehicle battery is a type of rechargeable battery that supplies electric energy to an automobile.

There has never been so much strain on a car battery with hi-tech, modern gadgets becoming more popular. Alarms, immobilisers and other add-on kits take a continual load from the power supply, meaning batteries can go flat, especially if the car is not used for a while. Did you know, many vehicle manufacturers may not check the battery as part of the standard maintenance schedule. With school trips, business meetings and fun trips to make, the last thing you want is for your battery to fail resulting in your car being unable to power up. You should ensure your battery is checked regularly as part of your safety and maintenance routine.

When you bring your car to our workshop for a routine maintenance check, the auto technician will perform a comprehensive vehicle inspection. We believe, an important part of the vehicle inspection is to check the batteries performance. Using our handheld tester and expertise, we will identify any issues relating to this very important car part. On completion of this test, we will recommend the appropriate action to take, meaning you do not have to worry about your car not starting unexpectedly.

In most cases, a car battery will not deteriorate overnight. By checking the batteries performance, this will indicate if a battery is releasing the appropriate amount of amperage or not. If the battery fails to meet the minimum requirement, it may need to be replaced. Allowing us to carry out a routine battery test will help ensure that the vehicle will start each and every time you take a trip.

TIP – This test should be performed everytime your car is brought in for a service or everytime your complete 7,500 miles.
