Free diagnostic battery 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 near you?

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.

We are sure to stock the car battery you require, at a price you can afford so for a competitive quote, simply contact your nearest Formula One Autocentres battery specialist.

The battery you require can often depend on vehicle size. You can find the correct battery size in the owner’s manual.

  • Great service I’m the director of my company ordered two tyres for the work vehicles ordered on and a time and fitting date was agreed needed another tyre tried to make a advanced payment for both tyres in store . Was tool by the manager only one item can be paid for. Once the next tyre is in stock. I to make a return visit into store and make payment again. For second item . Can you explain why your policies work this way . The manage said I could phone head office and open a Business account. Then we could just place orders as normal no complications. Any reason for this messages it put me right out had to return back this is not the first time this has happened all I was trying to do is make a payment in advance for goods I hadn’t received but willing to make the payment to make my business run smoothly but had to go out the way back to the store to carry on using you as a company .
