Car batteries are an essential feature of your car, and because they play such a big role in running your car, they can go flat. The experience of turning the ignition to hear a clinking sound or complete silence is enough to make your heart sink.
Car batteries are normally recharged by the electricity generated by the car’s alternator, unfortunately, they can’t last forever. Batteries don’t tend to be very expensive, however, costs increase by how much the garage will charge for labour. Fitting batteries in more modern cars can become difficult due to the amount of electrical systems, meaning a specialist is often essential for fitting a new battery.
Depending on the quality of the battery you buy and what type of battery you need, you can expect to pay anywhere between £50-£250.
