Boost your battery business & test all car batteries coming into the garage

VARTA brand ambassador Andy Savva talks to Matt King about Battery Maintenance during the continued Covid pandemic

The Garage Inspector Andy Savva talks to VARTA Technical Representative Matt King about how the battery is the heart of the car in modern vehicles, and why it’s essential that technicians should test the battery whenever a vehicle is in the workshop. This is especially important coming into winter, whilst many people’s cars have been used less or unused at all during the coronavirus pandemic, and after the hot summer weather; the battery has not been charged and starts degradation, leading to a weakened state.

VARTA have been highlighting as part of their Back To Better campaign, that by testing the battery and sharing the status with the customer, you are giving them peace of mind and avoid them breaking down in the cold due to a weak battery.

They also discuss the free-to-access VARTA Partner Portal and why all workshops can benefit from this online tool. The portal recommends the correct battery for every vehicle, the location of the battery within the vehicle, how long each battery change should take per model, and step-by-step replacement instructions & other helpful tips, all totally free!
