Free Battery Testing

At Kwik Fit we offer a free battery check at centres across the UK.

We’ll check the condition of your car battery, including your battery starting and charging systems, using the latest Bosch testing equipment. The service only takes around 5 minutes and no appointment is necessary.

This simple but effective battery test, which includes checking the voltage output and the charging rate of the battery provides a clear indication as to the condition of the battery and will indicate whether a battery failure is imminent by comparing the test results against the manufacturer’s specification.

Reasons to consider getting your battery checked

  • Your car or van battery loses its charging capability over time
  • In-car entertainment increases the demand on your battery
  • Battery failure is the number one reason for breakdowns in the UK

Your car battery is the only power source used for getting your car started and faulty batteries are one of the main reasons for breakdown calls in the UK. Industry sources say that 1 in 10 vehicle batteries are poised to fail. So it is important that you maintain a good healthy battery if you want to avoid becoming a roadside breakdown statistic. So, if you have any concerns regarding the condition or health of your car battery then we recommend you have the battery and charging system checked as soon as possible.

Kwik Fit stocks batteries to fit the vast majority of cars and light commercial vehicles should your battery fail. You can order your replacement battery online or call in to your nearest Kwik Fit centre – no appointment is necessary.
