Roadside Response Australia – When You Need A Holden Car Battery

The Holden brand of cars is synonymous with Australia. In fact, it is considered as the soul of the Aussies. The model has dominated the car market for many decades and still continues to do so. This is evidenced from the ever growing car sales and related accessories such as Holden car battery. It offers a wide range of cars to suit everyday needs. This includes sedans, sports cars, Ute (pickups), station wagon and much more. The brand is renowned for its agility, good performance, adequate power supply and trendiness. Various models are available for sporting, hauling loads, leisure or general use.

In 1852, an immigrant from Walsall, England, James Alexander Holden moved to South Australia. In 1856, he started J.A. Holden & Company in Adelaide,Australia. The company specialised in making saddles.Henry Frederick Frost joined the saddler maker as a junior partner in 1885.The Company was then renamed Holden & Frost Ltd. In 1905, Edward Holden, the grandson to James, joined the company. He initiated several partnerships that saw the company start manufacturing sidecar bodies for motorcycles. the company renamed to Holden’s Motor Builders Limited(HMBB) in 1919. Restrictions caused by War led to the company manufacturing car body shells on a full-scale. By 1923, HMBB was manufacturing about 12,000 annually.

The Holden Commodore SS V Redline, 2014 is currently causing waves in the motoring scene. The newly launched model has taken performance and refinement a notch higher.

I just want to thank you for getting to my house so fast. The car didn’t want to start this morning and I needed to get to work. The guy who changed the battery was real friendly and I was able to get to work almost on time (only 12 minutes late).

Keero was really helpful over the phone. He asked a couple of questions and we figured out straight away that the problem was most likely a dead battery. Phil was in the area and arrived in less than 40 minutes. Got a new battery and I was back up and running again. Thanks guys.
