James Coyle Motor Engineers can supply you with batteries for cars and light commercials. We carry a limited stock of batteries in our garage but if we do not have the type of battery you need, we can usually have it here within 24 hours.
As a motorist, we must check our van or car batteries on a regularly, which will help prepare you for your battery failing. Car and van batteries are usually changed every 5 years but this can vary depending on your vehicle and the type of battery it uses. It is always recommended that batteries are replaced according to the manufacturer’s advice. Batteries that start to come to the end of their life (ie dead cells etc) can keep you going for a while but the will need replaced eventually in the not too distant future and you will need to carry a set of jump leads or booster pack to ensure that you can survive your journey, although it is not advised to travel when batteries are in this stage of their life and should be replaced as early as possible.
In Scotland, battery failure is the number one reason why motorists call for breakdown services.
