Get your car going again with mobile cold start service

Bring the expertise of the garage to your front door with our mobile cold start service.

About our cold start service

In the winter months, there’s a high probability that you’ll wake up to a freezing morning or two. Unfortunately, this can sometimes make starting your vehicle very difficult. While we can’t cast any magic spells to wake your vehicle up after a cold snap, we can come and carry out our cold start service to get it going again.

Cold start or battery replacement service

We know its hard to determine whether your vehicle can be started or whether it needs a new battery without one of our expert technicians taking a look. At Halfords Tyres On The Drive we offer a cold start or battery replacement service to ensure if your vehicle can’t be started, we have a battery with us to replace right then and there to get you back on the road without delay!

How it works:

  1. Place an order for a replacement battery on our website
  2. Take a note of your Order number and give us a call on 0333 016 6550 to request the cold start to be added to the order.
  3. Our advisor will ensure our technician knows to bring the correct equipment to carry out a cold start.
  4. Once our technician has checked over your existing battery at the appointment, if a cold start is all that’s needed then we’ll carry out the work, we’ll take the battery back and refund you the difference in price.

What’s included?

The technician will:

  • Test your battery
  • Check your car is charging correctly
  • Check for a fault that could be leading to your battery being drained

Get your battery charged If during the cold start a fault is found, our technician will provide full details of the recommended work before any repairs are carried out.
