How do you know if your car needs a new battery?
Typically, the first signs of a flat or dead battery will be warning lights on the car’s dashboard, or you may find yourself trying to start your vehicle and hearing only a ticking sound when you turn the key in the ignition.
There are all kinds of causes for a flat or dead battery. Sometimes it’s just normal wear and tear on the car and sometimes it’s an indication of something else wrong with your vehicle. Common issues with dead or flat batteries are normally associated with overuse so be careful running the lights in your vehicle if the engine isn’t on.
If the voltage is wrong or there is a problem with your alternator, typically the car batteries are the first thing to go. The good news is that Lube Mobile have a mobile mechanic near you who can attend at the scene and get you back on the road as soon as possible.
Our mobile mechanics can arrive fully equipped for services and repairs or perform diagnostics on your vehicle and offer a written quote for repairs on the spot. There’s nothing worse than finding yourself facing hidden costs so all of our mechanics will thoroughly explain your vehicle’s condition before works go ahead.
How long do car batteries last?
Car batteries will typically last between 4 to 5 years depending on the vehicle so it’s not uncommon for your car battery to need replacing without further issues with the engine. If there is a problem with the vehicle’s engine that happens to be causing your battery issue, then your mobile mechanic will be able to provide an on the spot quote for further repairs so you know what to expect. We can also check your warranty details and advise on how to proceed depending on the warranty type.
How to charge a car battery?
Your car’s battery is charged as your driving along by the vehicle’s alternator, but if there’s a problem with the alternator or you’ve run the battery down too far to start the vehicle, then a quick charge with some jumper cables should get you moving again. Our mechanics can see you on the spot wherever you have broken down and provide a quick jump to get you back on the road. Often with healthy car batteries and engines, your vehicle should be able to charge your battery back up on the drive home so there won’t be any further starting problems.
How to replace a car battery?
It’s always a good idea to have a licenced mechanic complete any vehicle repairs on your motor and that includes replacing the car battery. All of our mobile mechanics are fully licenced technicians who can provide repairs on the spot such as battery replacements or full services, including log book services on new cars.
How many volts is a car battery?
Healthy car batteries – i.e. fully charged batteries - will produce 12.6 volts and a little bit higher when the car engine is running. The easiest way to measure your car battery’s voltage is using a multimeter but, as most people don’t usually carry that kind of equipment on hand, your Lube Mobile mechanic will have everything they need to test the health of your battery on the spot.

I am grateful to your staff - they acted for service in the highest standard. Please thank them.

The repair job just ended up being a battery change however it was done swiftly and the whole process (of assessing the old battery going to buy another etc.) was explained to me in advance and to my satisfaction. Telephone staff were cheery and helpful. All round a good experience - thank you :)
