Depending on the vehicle type, we offer a 2 or 4 year unlimited mileage guarantee for car and van batteries.

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. Checking the condition of your car battery and battery charging system is a service available at Top Tread and only takes around 5 minutes to complete.
This simple but effective test, which includes checking the charging system, voltage output and the charging rate of the battery will indicate whether a battery failure is imminent or not by comparing the test result against the manufacturer’s specification.
Using a digital display, your battery check will provide a clear indication as to the condition of the battery in a digital display. 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.
The average life expectancy of a good quality battery is 3 - 5 years, but this will depend on many factors such as the vehicle not being used for long periods or being mainly used for short journeys.

There are usually no warning signs that your battery is about to fail, but when your battery gets older you can get it checked at Top Tread. 

Why did my battery fail?

Lights have been left on
Lights being left on is the most common reason that breakdown recovery is called out!!!
Style of driving
Occasional driving or stop and start journeys mean that the battery hasn’t had sufficient time to recharge and as a result, goes flat.
Cold Weather Conditions
Cold temperatures in winter reduce the performance of your battery which, coupled with the extra work required to run heaters and lights during this season, mean that the majority of battery failures occur on cold winter mornings.
Long Hot Spells
Long hot spells are the leading cause of corrosion for car batteries which can lead to battery failure, so summer is also a time when battery failure can occur.

Why do batteries suddenly fail?
Most batteries don’t suddenly fail, they just wear out! Batteries are similar to tyres. As the tread depth reduces you can see when it’s time to get a new tyre. As the electrical performance of the battery reduces you need a machine to test the health of your battery so that it can be changed before it suddenly lets you down.

Top Tread offer a FREE Battery check for your car or van which will give you a printout of the current condition of your battery.
