Having a flat car battery can be frustrating, and there can be various reasons behind it. It may happen when your car is not in use for an extended period or when you forget to turn off the lights. Other causes include corrosion, overcharging, and excessive vibration.

In addition, during winter, the battery's performance can decrease significantly due to the extreme cold temperatures. At 0 degrees, the strength of the battery reduces by 35%, and at -18 degrees, it can be as much as 60% weaker. Exposure to such extreme cold can also shorten the lifespan of your battery, making it more prone to regular replacements.

You can rely on our expert team to address all your car battery-related concerns. We will conduct a thorough assessment of your battery's health and battery charger to identify any underlying faults causing the drain. Based on our findings, we will either charge or replace your battery promptly to ensure that you can get back on the road with peace of mind.

We provide a quality and professional car jump-start service

We have the necessary professional equipment, as well as a team of qualified specialists who will jumpstart your car battery in a timely and quality manner.

It is definitely not a good idea to try handling the battery issue and jump-starting the car by yourself. Using cheap jump leads from the supermarket, charging car batteries with a charger of unproven origin, or swapping batteries between two vehicles can cause damage to your car.

The poor quality car-to-car power supply can lead to a number of problems that may cost you a lot of money, time, and headaches until they are resolved.

We can reach you fast no matter where you are

If you are in need of a car jumpstart, our staff is always ready to assist you in fixing the issue and getting your vehicle back on the road. If you call us for help, we will make every effort to reach you as soon as possible.

Our trained team of professionals will check the condition of your car's battery and determine the problem that led to its drainage. We'll inspect it to see if there's any odour, if the battery is bulging, if there's corrosion, or if the caps have moved.

If there are no issues and the battery is in good condition, we will charge it and jumpstart your car right away. In the event of corrosion or a faulty alternator, we will install a new car battery so that you can safely continue your trip.

How does our car jumpstart service work?

If you have any problem with your vehicle's battery, contact us, and we will make sure to be with you as soon as we can. In order to get you back on the road, our professionals will test your battery first and then charge it, or replace it if needed.

Here is what our car battery jump start service includes.

Detailed battery testing

The first thing we will do when we arrive at your location is to perform a battery test and check your car's charging system. Thanks to the innovative equipment we have, we can get the results of the inspection right away.

After performing a thorough inspection and receiving the test results, we will be able to determine whether your battery can be recharged or if it needs to be replaced.

Battery charging or replacement

In case you simply forgot to switch off your lights and ended up with a dead battery, then there is a good chance that it can be recharged. It is usually a simple and straightforward process. Our well-equipped team can charge the battery and jump start your car in no time.

However, if your car battery is old and fails suddenly in cold weather, it is possible that it will need to be replaced. In such cases, our experienced technicians will install a new battery and safely jump start your car. Typically, it doesn't take too much time. The only disadvantage is that replacing a car battery is more expensive than recharging it.

Professional tips and advice

Aside from repairing, our qualified response team can provide you with free tips and advice on how to avoid having a flat car battery.

Frequently asked questions

How to jump-start a car?

Here is how you can jump-start your car with the help of another vehicle that has a good car battery.
Switch off all electrical systems in your car.

  1. The second vehicle should be parked close to your car so that the jump leads can easily reach from one battery to another.
  2. Be sure that your car engine and that of the other vehicle are switched off. Additionally, both of you must turn off all electrical components and remove the ignition keys.
  3. Connect the RED jump lead to your flat battery's positive terminal. Afterwards, attach the red jump lead to the positive terminal of the second vehicle's battery.
  4. Connect one end of the BLACK jump lead to the - negative terminal of the other car battery. Then, find a good earth point on your car (ideally, a solid metal part of your engine) and connect the other end of the black jump lead to it.
  5. Start the engine of the other vehicle and then try to jump-start your car.
  6. You can also jump start your car by using a portable battery pack. The principle of charging is similar. Just make sure you check the owner's manual and manufacturer instructions first.

Is it safe to jump-start a car by yourself?

Jumpstarting cars and vans may seem like a simple task, but if done incorrectly, it can damage the vehicle and cause personal injury. It is best not to charge your own car battery or allow anyone without the necessary knowledge to do so for you. If you simply use the wrong voltage, you can permanently damage the on-board computer. Not to mention that car batteries are inflammable, and even a small spark can run the risk of a car battery exploding and firing. In order to avoid battery explosion and other accidents, it is important to allow only skilled technicians to service your car.

How long do car batteries last?

The battery on some cars can last five or six years, while on others it may be necessary to replace it after just two. Typically, you will need to replace your car's battery after three to four years. Car batteries need to be replaced regularly as part of routine maintenance.

What are the most common reasons a car won't start?

Your car may not start for many reasons. Some of the most common ones include a flat battery, bad alternator, broken distributor cap, fuel pump faults and others.
