Mobile battery replacement at your home or work

Bring the expertise of the garage to your front door with our mobile battery replacement service.

Our contactless mobile battery replacement service

Batteries can fail for a variety of reasons, but one of the most common is a lack of regular use. With so many cars having spent the last several weeks idle or only being used for short essential journeys, it wouldn’t be surprising if you run into this problem.

Our contactless mobile garage service brings our technicians straight to your home, where they can replace your battery swiftly and safely.

The day of the appointment

  1. Our mobile technician will begin by carefully loading the necessary equipment into their clean van. They’ll then call you 15 minutes before your appointment to let you know that they’re on their way and to agree a safe place where you can leave your car keys.
  2. Before the technician arrives, make sure that your car is parked somewhere safe and accessible, and store your car keys in the agreed location.
  3. Once the technician has arrived, they’ll put on a new pair of disposable gloves before collecting your car keys from the agreed location. They’ll then fully ventilate your car and install extra protection inside including disposable seat covers and steering wheel wraps. The next step will be to carry out the necessary work to replace your car battery.
  4. When the work is complete, the technician will take your old battery for recycling and remove the disposable protection materials from your car. They’ll also update the status of the job using their online app, removing the need for any paperwork to be exchanged.
  5. Next, the technician will return the car keys to a safe location, ready for collection, and either knock on your door, call you or text you to inform you that the work is complete. If you’d like to inspect their work, then they’ll wait at a safe distance in the van until you’re finished.
  6. Finally, the technician will leave you with your fixed car and move on to help someone else. At the end of their shift, they’ll thoroughly clean their van and ensure all rubbish is disposed of in a safe, legal and environmentally-friendly manner to maximise customer and colleague safety.

How long will my battery last?

Batteries are designed to last between three and five years, however cold weather can significantly reduce your battery’s lifespan. There’re a few warning signs you can watch out for:

  • Difficulty starting the car/engine cranking more than usual
  • Loss of power for the electrics both inside and outside of the vehicle
  • Dashboard warning symbol
