Car and Van Battery Replacements

Your car battery is an important part of the vehicle that when fully functional ensures you hear that familiar sound when you turn your key in the ignition. A flat battery can be a massive inconvenience and is one of the top reasons for road side assistance call outs in the UK. There are two pretty broad reasons for why your battery can be flat. Firstly, if you leave something electrical on such as your lights or radio whilst you’re not using your vehicle. Another reason could be that simply something has become unserviceable to your battery and needs replacing.

On board computers and devices within your vehicle are fantastic but can slowly drain your battery even when you’re not using it. When you plan on leaving your vehicle standing for a long time it can become discharged.

Normally your car battery will last around five years but can fail within around three years depending on your vehicle usage. If you have had your vehicle for anywhere between these two periods of time you can benefit from a FREE Battery Check at the Hippo Service Centre. Fill in the form on the right hand side and we can give your vehicle a once over at our state of the art service centre.

For battery replacements we can book you in and carry out the work at a competitive price. If it is more convenient book an appointment and we can carry out the work whilst you wait.

    I have complete faith in the entire team at Hippo, and regularly leave my car in their capable hands. All is well, and I pick it up knowing that it has been serviced with care and attention and at a very reasonable price. Keep up the good work Hippo, I will spread the word.
