Car Battery Replacement & Installation Service

Car Battery Replacement Newbury - Station Tyres

We all take our car batteries for granted, we put the key in the ignition, turn it and expect an instant start.

But what happens when your car battery fails, when it refuses to turn your engine over, your car is stuck outside your home or workplace and you're going nowhere?  

Cold days and nights especially during the winter months puts an additional strain on car batteries, because the car engine needs more power to get them started. Then there is the fact that lights, heaters, windscreen heaters, seat warmers and windscreen wipers are all putting extra demands on the battery as well. A car battery usually only has a lifespan of around five years, but even relatively new ones can go wrong.

Car & Van Batteries Thatcham & Newbury

At Station Tyres and Service Centre, we can supply and fit a wide range of car, van and 4x4 batteries. Our battery prices are more competitive than some of the leading high street motorist shops – with the added convenience of fitting by fully trained technicians at our garage. We can supply and fit batteries to any passenger car or light commercial vehicle.


Having a Station Tyres & Service Centre technician carry out a Battery Diagnostic Service, especially before a big trip, is a quick, easy way to long-lasting peace of mind. It takes just minutes to inspect and test your battery and charging system components on a machine that lets you know with a high degree of confidence how much life is left in it. If it’s fine, we’ll give you the good news. If it’s not, we’ll let you know that too and recommend the right replacement battery.  


If our mechanics at Station Tyres and Service Centre determine that your vehicle battery isn’t performing within the manufacturer’s recommendations, we’ll replace it with a new one. And to help make sure you can have a worry free journey, we’ll test the new battery and starting and charging system components prior to installation and retest the vehicle battery and starting and charging components after installation.
