Keeping your battery in good condition

Vehicle systems are constantly placing a small drain on the car’s battery, even when it is not in use. Regular driving keeps the battery active and extends its life, but if the car is sitting idle, the battery will not be receiving that regular necessary boost. This means that when a car is not used for a long period of time, the battery will eventually lose its charge unless steps are taken to prevent this.

We know that for many customers placing their vehicles into storage, one of their main concerns is whether the battery will still be functioning when they want to use their car again. You don’t want to come and collect your car only to find that the battery is flat and you are unable to drive it away. That is why we make use of state of the art battery conditioners, ensuring that all the cars we look after remain fully functioning, in top condition and ready to use when their owners return to collect them.

We use state of the art battery conditioners including the CTEK800 and CTEK MULTI XS5.0. Battery life varies greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle, the age of the battery, the climate, and many other factors; in some cases, a battery can become flat after being idle for just a couple of weeks, while others can last for months. Our chargers and conditioners can be individually set to meet the unique needs of your car, ensuring that it receives the correct level of charge.

These conditioners are equipped with voltage monitors and safety features which ensure no overcharging, so they can be connected for many months with no detrimental effects on the car battery. No matter whether you are storing your car with us for a long or short period of time, we can offer you the ideal solution to protect it from damage and deterioration.
