We have delivered over 50,000 orders safely across Australia using couriers (or our own vehicles for customers who are near one of our Stores). For Deliveries during the COVID-19 period we are being especially careful to ensure that goods are sanitised and we keep a safe distance while delivering. This also applies in-store, and you may be asked to use hand sanitizer and observe social distancing rules when shopping with us. Please call us if you have any questions or concerns regarding deliveries – for example if your family is particularly at-risk. Alternatively use the notes section if you are ordering online.
Car Battery Fitting
We offer a car battery fitting service at our Stores (and to customers close to our Stores whenever possible). Our “Standard fitting” service includes a test of your vehicle charging system, plus removal of the old battery for recycling. A Standard fitting is where we can get to the battery fairly easily and replace it without having to remove too many trim items or other obstacles. The vast majority of Japanese Models are like this, and we stock the Original Equipment batteries for these vehicles from the Panasonic Range, as well as other quality batteries.
We also do much more complex fittings every day for premium makes such as Audi, BMW, VW, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, Volvo, Landrover 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.
On-Board Computer Resets
We expertly fit hundreds of car batteries every month, and the vast majority are quick and straightforward. On newer models we can use our Electronic On-Board-Computer (OBC) interface. This plugs into your vehicles OBD II (on board diagnostic) connector and then updates the computer with the details about the new battery if needed. 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.
We have approved recycling storage facilities at all Stores and can recycle your car battery free of charge. If you are fitting the battery yourself feel free to drop the old battery off to our Store afterwards and we can also check your alternator and re-set your OBC if required.
