Car Battery Fitting
We offer a car battery fitting service at our Stores (and to customers close to our Stores when possible). Our "Standard fitting" service includes a test of your alternator and charging system, plus removal of the old battery for recycling. Note that this is for a Standard fitting only - where we can get to the battery and remove it quite quickly.
We do complex fittings every day for premium makes such as Audi, BMW, VW, Mercedes Benz, Porsche etc., and we can supply the Original Battery for these vehicles at big savings over dealer prices. Our Varta supplied batteries are made in Germany and are ideal for these models.
Batteries for Models fitted with "Idle Stop-Start" systems
Many modern vehicles are fitted with systems to stop the engine in traffic or at the lights. These systems NEED special "Stop-Start"Batteries - which we carry in Stock. Give us a call to find the right battery for your car.
On-Board Computer Resets
We expertly fit hundreds of car batteries every month, and the vast majority are quick and straightforward. On newer models (2004 for European cars) we can use our Electronic On-Board-Computer (OBC) interface. This plugs into your vehicles OBC (on board Computer) connector and then updates the computer with the details about the new battery. If fitting your battery we will also try and keep some battery power connected (using a small auxiliary battery) while we swap out your old battery for the new one. This is to avoid loss of power to the Radio (which may have a key-code), plus the alarm system etc. If your old battery was faulty, flat or had previously been disconnected then loss of power may already have taken place, in which case radio key-codes can often be obtained from the owners manual or your local dealer.
