Free diagnostic battery health check

The colder winter months can seriously compromise the effectiveness of your car battery - that's why we offer a free diagnostic battery check at all of our centres.

Your battery is one of the most important components of your car, and it is often during cold spells that you can first experience problems. This can be at the very least inconvenient, or, if you find yourself stranded in extreme conditions, potentially dangerous.

With your comfort and safety in mind, we would recommend that you take advantage of our free diagnostic health check, which provides you with a printed report of the condition of your battery.


Looking to buy a car battery locally?

The battery is the source of all electricity in your car. It powers the starter and ignition; it supplies extra power when needed and ensures a smooth flow of electrical energy. To ensure your car battery performs reliably at all times, it is essential to maintain it properly.

Unlimited mileage guarantee

For added peace of mind, all Formula One Autocentres batteries are covered by a 3 year unlimited mileage guarantee.

What people are saying about us...

  • Phillip on the front desk was very helpful as always. Scott who carried out the master service on my car was very professional and meticulous. A job very well done. Very happy customer.

    - Fred, Strood - Sep 10, 2017
  • I was very pleased with the service I was given. I dropped my car off and asked if the brakes could also be checked, within an hour I had a phone call to explain issue with my brakes and they were able to sort them out within the original time frame given when I dropped the car off.

    - Michelle, Northampton (Gambrel Road) - Sep 1, 2017
  • Very good as usual. I have been using them for my vans and cars for years. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
