We all put our keys in the ignition, expecting the car to start. If your battery fails, it always seems to happen at the worst time - such as when it is cold, wet and dark outside or your in a rush to get somewhere. In the colder months this is because we tend to ask more of the battery when it is cold and wet outside due to having the heaters, lights and windscreen wipers running constantly, causing an extra strain on the battery.
There are signs that your battery may be getting weak such as dim headlights or a sluggish starter motor. Generally, most batteries tend to last for 5 years, this can vary depending on how the vehicle is used and the extra demands that are put on the vehicle (such as using the heaters and lights constantly). If you use a lot of your vehicle you are asking more of it at regular times.
So what do you do, you need a new battery but you cannot go anywhere as you cannot move the vehicle, why not give Driveway Tyres a call. We offer a mobile battery replacements service at your home or place of work. One of our friendly experienced fitters will come out to your location to supply and fit a new battery. On some occasions we will carry out an inspection prior to fitting to make sure we are sourcing the correct battery as some vehicle models may have a specific type.
Battery prices can range from around £35 plus fitting and upwards, depending on the battery you need. We will quote you a price that includes the battery, fitting and disposal of the old battery (if requested by the customer).
If you need a battery replaced, give us a call on 0800 009 6867 or send us a message and one of our friendly fitters will be in touch to arrange to come out to see you and fit your new battery.
Great service that got my out of a difficult situation on the first day of my holiday! Picked up a nasty puncture on a run flat tyre, and automatically checked the nationwide names. They couldn't provide what I needed and therefore I decided to try a local firm. Spoke to John; it was pretty late in the day and he managed to find me some tyre options and could fit that evening. He called me back when promised and kept me informed all along about arrival time. Driveway delivered great service, even checking pressures on all tyres and resetting my type pressure monitor on the car. John gave me a good price and took all the stress out of what could have been a bad start to my holiday. I totally recommend Driveway and wish them ever success. It is the customer care that makes such a difference. i hope everyone around South Wales gives them a try.SimonL-460 - 5 ★ Yell

Bit of a late review so sending my apologies! I phoned driveway tyres about two weeks ago to book an appointment to change my flat tyre I spoke to a lovely man called Mark who sorted everything for me he rang me back when he said he would and wasn’t pushy in making me choose the most expensive option etc (which puts me off as a customer) he even recommended a puncture repair but I said I’d rather a brand new one. The same day around midday (I called at 8:30am) John arrived outside my house at the exact time he said he would and within 30-45 mins he’d changed my tyre and checked the pressure on all the other ones! He even went to the lengths of showing me the cause of my flat tyre (a piece of glass had pierced through).... fab service, highly recommend, first time using driveway tyres and definitely won’t be the last!! Thank you very much Mark and John for your fab customer service couldn’t fault it ??Carys James - 5 ★ Facebook
