Our Team will check all your vehicles lights including headlights, tail lights, indicators and brake lights.

If you need any replaced we can guide you through the replacement options suitable for your vehicle and even fit them for you*

Battery Condition Report

Battery Condition Report

With our Industry Standard tester we will check your battery to determine its current power performance against its rated performance. This gives a good indication of the general health of the battery.

Did You Know? Cold weather slows down chemical reactions inside a battery reducing its capacity. This same cold weather causes thicker engine oil, increased draw from the starter motor and higher loads from a vehicle’s electrical accessories. This places more than normal power demands on the battery leading to a higher chance of failure.

If a replacement battery is required we can recommend the right one for your car, and fit it too*. We can also recycle your old battery helping you avoid the cost and inconvenience of disposal.

Battery Condition Report

Start & Charge Report

When you’re having trouble starting your car, the battery may not actually be the problem. That’s why we also check your alternator and starter motor.

The Alternator is the component in your car that charges your battery when it has been used. If this is not operating correctly it will result in the battery going flat.

The Starter test checks the battery while the vehicle starts - the time when a battery is under maximum load. If the battery passes a test under no load but fails when placed under load, this generally indicates it has a bad cell and needs to be replaced.

Again, we can advise on the best battery option for your vehicle and fit it on the spot!

Did You Know? 98% of an automotive battery can be recycled! The components of the battery including plastic, lead and acid are re-processed and manufactured into a range of other products.
