Batteries

We supply and fit batteries for all makes and models of car, van, 4×4 and light commercial.

If we don’t have your battery in stock the majority of orders will be delivered the next working day. We will price match within the Buxton area so you always get the best batteries at the best possible price.

If you’re not sure if your battery needs replacing we can quickly test the condition of your battery, to ensure that it is performing as expected.

A battery in poor condition can affect your vehicle’s performance and if the battery doesn’t hold its charge you won’t be able to start your vehicle.

Flat battery?

The battery is one of the most important items under the bonnet, which is why it is important to keep it in good condition.

A faulty or old battery may cause you problems starting the engine, which could leave you and your family stranded at the roadside.

There are three important checks you should carry out, especially if you’re having any problems.

 

1. Low fluid level

If your battery has removable covers you can inspect the level of electrolyte fluid inside the cells. You will see metal plates inside (side on from top). Fluid should be higher than the plate. Top up with distilled water (de-ionised).

 

2. Poor charging from alternator

A simple way to test if your alternator is charging is to start your car and put all your lights on full beam. When you rev your engine you should just be able to see the lights going brighter and then dimmer when you stop revving. If the car stalls when you put your lights on then the problem is probably with the alternator.

 

3. Incorrect battery fitted

Your battery needs the correct amp/hour ratings for your vehicle or your engine may stall or have trouble starting. Our staff can advise on the correct battery for your car.

If you’re not sure if your battery needs replacing we can quickly test the condition of your battery, to ensure that it is performing as expected.

A battery in poor condition can affect your vehicle’s performance and if the battery doesn’t hold its charge you won’t be able to start your vehicle.

If you have any concerns about your battery don’t hesitate to book your vehicle in, so we can carry out a range of tests on your battery and electrical system.
