Which Car Battery Delivery Service Did We End Up Using
Read this only if you need a car battery delivery service.
It has probably happened to you before. You go to turn your car key in the ignition (or press the start button) and nothing happens. Maybe you hear a few clicks and maybe you see your digital meter cluster trying to ‘light’ up.
Aiyo, it is a (flat) dead car battery. So how do you get your vehicle back on the road?
If you are prepared, like we are always, you already have a good set of jumper cables in your car boot ready to be used. (if you do not, then go and buy a set of quality jumper cable right after reading this article).
Please DO NOT buy hypermarket or DIY shop jumper cables as they are useless and a waste of money.
Instead please buy your jumper cables from a car spare parts shop like we did and so far it is lasted us more than a decade and we have used it probably more than 30 times in many situations for ourselves and for friends.
If the Jump-Start Fails
If the jump-start fails to start your car after a few short attempts, or if the car starts but then dies again, you have some other issues you need to address. Most batteries are rated to last 1-3 years.
If your battery is old, you may need to replace it. If the battery should be working well, you should consider other possible problems with other components, including:
• faulty alternator
• ignition switch
• starter connection
Dealing with a dead car battery is easy today with so many battery delivery services available around the country. We decided to ‘ask’ our friends on facebook for suggestion and we got dozens of suggestion and private messages for battery delivery service.
So, we decided to call a few of the popular ones. They were all the same, offering great service and great special offers right now.
We took a few minutes to run thru the prices and the suggested battery brands and we decided on an Amaron battery from a shop in Petaling Jaya New Town. Their price was not the cheapest (somewhere in the middle) but they were close to home and we could chase them if we had issues later.
The price difference was just RM15.00 between the various delivery services. They arrived on time. Took about 20 minutes. Checked my alternator. Issued a receipt. Accepted online payment and gave us a 36 month warranty.
(The battery comes with 18th month manufacturers warranty at RM340.00 and there is another 18 months shop warranty if you pay an additional RM50.00, so it is a total of just RM390.00).
