We have been in the battery industry for over 30 years now and have gained a reputable standing for providing only the best car batteries in Durban. Although an hour away, if clients require car batteries in Durban we do provide a delivery service. The delivery service for car batteries in Durban is done free of charge as long as the perimeter of the request is in KwaZulu Natal. Car batteries will be brought directly to your door upon confirmation of the order and will be fitted into the vehicle. Of course, the old car battery will have to be removed. The delivery service also allows for the pickup of used car batteries in Durban to be disposed of safely by Battery Man as car batteries are classified as hazardous items.

This would have to be arranged to coincide with our drivers route but is still done free of charge. Other than supplying car batteries in Durban we also have services that we provide onsite which include:
  • Check-ups of car batteries in Durban to declare them in roadworthy condition- car batteries will give years of service before they will need to be replaced. They should be inspected by a professional though to ensure that this time period can be taken to the maximum.
  • Check-ups of the alternators charging rates- an important aspect of the check-up is the detailed inspection of the charging rates of the vehicles alternator. These are required to be in optimal condition so that the car battery maintains a steady charging rate.
  • If our delivery staff do find problems with the car battery then they can do a full replacement.

Taking care of Car Batteries

Although it is a good idea to start doing yearly check-ups around the 3 year mark. Car batteries can explode and can cause some major damage to a person, so if making an attempt to do a check-up yourself then safety precautions should be taken such as
  • Not having any open flames around when working with the battery
  • Wearing safety goggles
  • Taking careful note to read the warning labels properly

Alternatively car batteries in Durban can be taken to specialists such as Battery Man (or have us come to you) where a full and expert check-up can be done. Customers will be able to rest easier knowing that their car battery has been checked out by a professional.

About Car Batteries

Car batteries are the component which gives a vehicle that initial burst of energy to start the car. They also power up items like the radio and other entertainment systems. If you are in Durban and your car battery become faulty this could leave you stranded, and waiting a while for help which can be a dangerous situation. Faulty car batteries should be checked before it gives out completely. There should be at least a little bit of energy available to start the car and get it to a safe spot

  • Car batteries are charged by the vehicles alternator which is only operational when the car is used. This energy is stored in the car battery waiting to be used up. If a vehicle remains unused for a long period of time then the battery will discharge. To avoid this vehicles should be routinely driven.
  • Car batteries in Durban can succumb to corrosion and to counter this a mixture of water and baking soda can be used to clean the battery. This simple procedure can be done around once a year. Car batteries will go through wear and tear. An example would be constant driving on gravel roads causing vibration. Car batteries can become overheated and so a vehicle should be cooled off every once in a while especially on long trip in a shaded area.
  • If a cars headlights are becoming dimmer or loses its power quickly in colder weather then the battery may need replacing.
