Just like any purchase you make, due diligence always has excellent benefits for you personally. Your mobile car battery replacement service is no exception, hence, why we provide a “Checklist” just for you.
Keep reading, and take notes before booking the right service provider. You might be surprised about considerations you might overlook that ensure “Smooth Sailing” in getting your vehicle back on the road.
When under stress, especially stranded with a dead battery, essential questions and information may not be thought of when making your inquiries. The last thing you need is a product and service that does not meet your standards, or that was initially not conversed with you.
Here Is Your Mobile Car Battery Replacement Checklist
Most automotive roadside service providers are professional, courteous and will ask you, all the information they require. In saying this, you need to keep your “Blinkers On” with all your inquiries.
- Ask if they are licensed mechanics/auto electricians and experienced in all types of vehicles.
- Do they have public liability and fully insured in the event of a mishap.
- What type of batteries do they have, where are they made and warranty cover.
- How many mobile service vehicles do they have covering the area to facilitate customers.
- Do they have the latest equipment to carry out diagnosing and new car battery management registration where required?
- Do they have Nationwide Warranty in the event the battery fails within the warranty period?
- Does the price you get quoted on include GST, or is it an addition. Surprisingly, if you do not ask this question, you might get a “Rude Shock” later.
The first thing to do when the technician arrives
- Politely ask the technician to show you the battery they are installing. Must be the correct price, make, type and specified warranty that you purchased.
- Stay in proximity to ensure the same battery you purchased is in your vehicle. Please do not disturb the technician while completing the job to ensure safety.
- Once completed, make sure you receive a Company/Business Invoice with the exact battery that you purchased. Please do not lose it for warranty issues.
“Are online reviews a good indicator?” — you ask
..Yes and No!
One question, “Do you like giving reviews?”
With most reviews, once again you must use your judgement. “Word of Mouth” is the best indicator of the reputation of a business or product. We are not saying reviews are entirely useless; unfortunately, though, they can be easily manipulated and created with Fake Profiles.
The most misrepresenting reviews are the 1 Star reviews with no comments. How do you decide if a business or product is terrible solely based on a Star? The truth is you cannot, quite laughable and suspect actually. How search engines allow this is entirely unacceptable.
It is a common problem now for businesses, as the majority of reviews do not even have original names and unable to authenticate. Our advice, don’t make assumptions solely based on reviews. Look for platforms where customers are validated to ensure they are genuine.
Go to the ACCC (Australian Competition & Consumer Commission) site to see how to manage online reviews.
Use our checklist, be positive and give them an opportunity, you might be surprised with a smile from “Ear to Ear”.

Keep These Three Battery Maintenance Tools Handy!
By regularly checking the state of your battery you will avoid getting stranded with a dead one. Ongoing inspection is the key to have years of trouble-free starting power, longevity and not having to call a roadside replacement service for a Long, Long Time.
Fact: Short distance driving and not using your vehicle enough leads to undercharged batteries which equals acid stratification and sulfation. The number one reason they fail prematurely.
1) The Matson Electronic Battery Tester with Printer will give you an Instant State of Health in the condition of your battery. This is a “Must Have Tool” if you would like to increase the Longevity and Replacement Intervals.
2) In the event the digital tester says it requires a charge the Ctek MXS 10 12V 10 Amp Smart Battery Charger (56-823) and will keep your battery in Optimum Condition at all times.
3) If you accidentally leave your Headlights or an Interior Light on you must keep a portable Matson 12 Volt Lithium Jump Starter in your Glove Box. It’s happened to most of us only to find out our battery has gone completely flat and unable to start the vehicle.
A checklist is always important when making a purchase. By doing your research, your automotive battery replacement will be a “Stress-Free” experience. That is our Goal!
