Mobile Car Battery Fitting
Car battery failure is one of the most common causes of vehicle breakdowns. It can also be one of the most inconvenient and expensive motoring problems to resolve. Although it is the heart of your vehicle, a car battery is only expected to have a life span of around five years and yet the advances in automotive technology can shorten this even further.
We increasingly rely on them to re-charge our mobile phones, iPods and anything else we can charge through the 12v lighter socket. Then there are the heated seats, electric windows, demisters, all of which enhance your driving experience, but drain the life out of your battery. Even stop-start systems, while good for the environment, are an extra drain on your battery power. That is why it is important to be aware of the age of your battery, signs that it is on its last legs and maintenance tips to ensure it doesn’t let you down.
The etyres way No call out charges, no fittings costs, just the cost of your new car battery. You'll also get even more from our mobile car battery replacement service because we'll take your old battery away and dispose of it for you.
Additionally, we only supply Platinum Batteries which meet, or exceed your vehicles original specification (O.E). You won't find us fitting cheap batteries which could let you down when you need your vehicle the most.
We don't believe in charging extra to get you back on the road, just order your battery and our mobile fitting service is now available for car batteries too, meaning if you get stranded anywhere with a flat battery we'll try come out to you the very same day. If you think your battery could do with replacing ready for winter, our batteries all have next day fitting free of charge, so you won't be waiting too long.
How to maintain your car battery
There are several simple steps you can take to get the maximum life and value out of your car battery.
1. Check the charge. Make sure your cell voltage is checked when you have your car serviced. A fully charged battery will have a charge of 12.5 to 12.6 volts. When the engine is running this should rise to 13.7 to 14.7 volts.
2. Condition. Inspect your battery every few months to make sure it is clean and secure. A dirty battery connection will weaken the charge, so remove the connectors from the terminal to clean away grease, dirt and dried acid build-up. You could even apply a layer of multi-purpose grease to protect the battery from rust and corrosion.
3. Prevention. As temperatures drop more power is needed to start the engine. In order to give your battery a helping hand, ensure all accessories are unplugged and switch off anything else that drains its power. Get into the habit of turning everything off before you leave your car.
4. Use it or lose it. Not driving your vehicle enough can lead to battery problems. Batteries will refuse to work when vehicles have been left standing idle. Equally, if your car is only used for short trips, the battery will not have enough time to recharge, which will ultimately leave it flat.
