A breakdown can occur for a number of reasons. Your old car battery fails you, you get a flat tyre or accidentally run out of fuel. Regardless of the reasons why, you can bet it happens at the worst possible time! If you’re unfortunate enough to break down, remember your Roadside Response is just a phone call away.
Used lead-acid batteries are classified as hazardous waste under the Hazardous Waste Act 1989 and should not be disposed of with the regular garbage. Each lead-acid battery contains about 2-3 litres of sulfuric acid, as well as lead, both of which are toxic. Lead is a cumulative poison in our bodies and is also harmful to the environment, particularly fish, animals and plants.

If you think the summer weather is easier on your car battery, think again.
While warmer temperatures help to increase battery capacity, making it easier to turn over the engine, they also cause an increase in the rate at which the battery deteriorates. When the temperature is warmer, the current conducting grids corrode faster, which can reduce the life of your battery.
