A faulty car battery is one of the most common causes of roadside assistance callouts.

Here at Auto Super Shoppe Albany, we are an authorised Century Car Battery stockist, and we look after you by only stocking the highest quality car batteries – saving money on a cheap car battery will cost you more in the long run, it’s just not worth the hassle.

In fact, all our batteries come with a three year warranty! This is because our batteries contain more lead plates to conduct the charge and ensure a longer life span.

We have battery-trained technicians who will help you decide what it the correct battery choice is for your vehicle.

If you’re not sure about the state of your car battery, particularly if you’re looking to purchase a new vehicle, we can provide a free battery inspection service with a computerised printout from our digital car battery tester.

There are a few warning signs that your battery needs to be checked.

  • Your car is slow to start
  • Using electrical components of your vehicle (such as the radio or CD player) while the car isn’t running causes the battery to go flat quickly.

Auto Super Shoppe Albany also offer a roadside rescue service anywhere in New Zealand, so you can call on us if you’re ever stuck on the side of the road with a flat battery, or any other mechanical fault which stops you moving. Ask about our 6 month or 12 month options the next time you come in and see us.

Tips: If your current battery is a lead-acid variety, it requires you to monitor the water level regularly. Water is lost via electrolysis during each charging cycle and needs to be replaced with distilled water (not straight from the tap) to keep working.
