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.

Woke up to a flat tyre, thought I could get the spare on and get it to a garage but turns out I cant and the tyre wont budge. Quick Google and there are Driveway tyres. I'm already thinking i'm going to have to wait all day, and it's going to cost more than the garage........ how wrong was I:
I call and speak to John, who said he's got a job on but he'll buzz me back in half hour.
-10 minutes later his colleague Mike is on the phone, asking what tyre I need and what my address is.
-1 hour later, Mike is on my driveway jacking my car up, armed with a new tyre just in case its needed.
-40 mins later, my tyre has been repaired with no new tyre needed. £25 charge. All whilst having a laugh about the other cars on my driveway.
£25 and 2 hours of time and the car is as good as new. Now would that have happened if I went to a garage? NO! I'd be sat waiting my turn, only to be told the tyre is not repairable and I need a new tyre at a cost (and they probably can't get it today!)
And of course, good service is not good service if it just happens once....... so when the Mrs needed a tyre after a blowout; we call Mike and see if he can help. Yet again, within the hour he's on the drive jacking up the car with a spare tyre ready to go. We were expecting to pay over the odds given the quick & convenient service, but the tyre worked out cheaper than going to the usual garage!
Fast working, honest, funny, great at keeping you informed of ETA's AND cost competitive: I would not fail to recommend John & Mike to anybody. They are the spirit of small Welsh business and should be your go to for tyres and tyre repairs!
All the best with the business guys, Kieran and Bianca!
