Mobile Car Battery Repair Near You

If your car has a flat battery, you probably won't be able to take it to a local garage for an appointment. That's where a mobile mechanic near you can help. They come and complete the work at a time and place that best suits your schedule.

Here are some of the ways a mobile car battery replacement can benefit you:

 

Convenience - Rather than having to find time to take your car to a garage and then trying to keep your life on track without it, you can have your car service completed at a location that works best for you. This could be your driveway or a car park at work during your normal day. This helps you avoid disruption.

Flexibility - You may be able to book a mobile car service on a weekend, evening or even overnight, depending on the mobile mechanics in your area. If your schedule doesn’t really accommodate maintenance at a traditional garage, this can make your life easier.

Transparency - You get to see what is happening during your mobile car service at all times. This makes it easier to trust the quality of the work and gives you the peace of mind that all the checks have been completed to the highest standard.

Cheaper - A mobile car service involves less overhead costs and expenses, so they are often at least competitively priced against, if not cheaper than most local garages.

What is a car battery?

A car's battery, which is rechargeable, is one of those components that must be fully-functional for a car to start. This is because its main purpose is to feed electricity to the starter, which starts the engine. Once the engine is running, power for the car's electrical systems is supplied by the alternator, which takes around 20 minutes to fully recharge a car battery.

 

How long does a car battery last?

 

  • As with all batteries, its strength will diminish over a period of time, rechargeable or not.
  • Although some batteries need to be maintained, most motorists opt for a maintenance-free version.
  • Car batteries are designed and built to last between 3-5 years.
  • One should buy a 5-year car battery if the car will be driven in harsh weather or on frequent, short car journeys.

 

What are the possible signs that a car needs a new battery?

 

  • The “charge” indicator on a car’s dashboard lights up.
  • Headlights are dim or don’t come on at all.
  • The engine does not, or takes a while, to start.
  • Some electrical components in the car are not working correctly.
  • Corrosion on the terminals.
  • The car backfires.

 

How do I avoid running down a car battery?

 

  • Frequently check that the terminals aren’t corroded and that everything is connected properly.
  • Its life can also be curtailed if used to power non-automobile electronic devices, such as a television.
  • Use the car at least once a week.
  • Don’t sit in the car with engine off, but the radio or lights on, for an extended period of time.

 

How long does it take to change a car battery?

 

  • Even though car batteries are heavy, it is usually a straightforward job to replace one.
  • If you don’t want to do it yourself then a garage can do it for you for a minimal charge.
  • They will often do it for free if you buy it from them.

 

How much does a new car battery cost?

 

  • Up to £100, depending on the car, the quality and the length of time stated on it that it is expected to last.
