Top Car Battery Replacement related questions

Hiring a Tasker lets you devote your time to more critical tasks. You can relax while they remove the old battery, install the new one and dispose of the old battery. You spare yourself from doing the dirty work by using our platform. It doesn’t take much to find the right person for the job. You release payment after the job is done. For a better idea of how to do it with Airtasker, read this guide.

You are not obliged to provide any tool or piece of equipment to your hired Tasker to perform the service. Taskers can bring their own tools, and they already know what works best for doing the job. But you are free to lend them any tools or equipment you have that you think can make the job go smoother and quicker.

The time it takes can vary from Tasker to Tasker, but overall the whole process should take less than two hours. You may have to allow more time if you ask the Tasker to buy the new battery for you. Not to mention if they need to clean the terminals and battery clamps. Consider the distance from the shop to your address and traffic conditions to add to the time needed if you make them buy the battery.  

Taskers can assist you, but it would be better to let them do 100% of the work. After all, that’s why you hired them! Your Tasker is more than capable of doing all the work, from disconnecting the battery terminals and cleaning the clamps and terminals. They can also take the old battery to a recycling facility. Some Taskers may even offer to buy the battery for you if you don’t have one already.  

The standard practice is to replace your car’s battery every three years, as car batteries are almost sure to have reliability issues by then. Should you neglect to do this, your car’s battery will be worn down and less efficient in recharging itself via the alternator. And take note that the more electronics your car has, such as power door locks, power windows, sunroof, rear windscreen wipers, reversing camera and other accessories, the quicker your battery drains.

A car battery needs to be changed when your headlights become dim, your electronics aren’t activating, or worse, your car doesn’t start. Dim headlights are usually the earliest sign, but these can also be due to a defective alternator or starter motor. Should an inspection made by an auto electrician find nothing wrong with them, then the battery needs replacing. Even if these signs don’t turn up, replace your battery every three years (don’t wait until your car doesn’t start).

What do Car Battery Replacement services include?

Car battery replacement services usually include several steps. First, your car is towed to the garage. Mechanics then remove the old, damaged or non-working car battery. They then install the new car battery. If you haven’t bought the new battery yet, most hired mechanics or specialists can make the purchase for you, if their garage doesn’t have the right battery for your car in stock.

Note that this service is for replacing batteries of conventional engines instead of electric cars. This service also does not imply replacing the batteries in car key fobs.

Towing or transporting your car

Since you won’t be able to start your car, you’ll need a way to transport your car to the garage to get serviced. Some mechanics may offer a towing or transport service to get your car to their garage. Mechanics can attach your car to a tow truck, or place it on a flatbed truck. Your chosen mechanic should be able to tow or transport your car without damaging it.

Replacement service: removing the dead car battery

Your mechanic removes the old battery from your car, regardless of its make, model, and brand. Whether it is a Nissan, Ford, Mazda, BMW, Volvo or other car brands, they can remove the old battery. Mechanics disconnect the terminals to ensure its safe removal. The old battery is placed on a stack of old newspapers or cloth to catch any leaking liquids. Mechanics use safety gloves, and a mask and goggles as batteries contain dangerous substances like acid.  

New battery installation

Mechanics can put in your new battery while following best practices. Once the old battery is removed, they clean the battery terminals and clamps to prevent grounding, decreased conductivity or other issues. The mechanic uses a wire brush, baking soda and water to clean out the terminals and clamps, removing dirt, corrosion, or residue. After installing the new battery, the mechanic tests it by starting up your car, activating the wipers, radio, or other electronic accessories.

Old battery disposal

This is another service that your mechanic can do for you, as you cannot toss old car batteries in the rubbish bin. Old batteries have dangerous chemicals that pose a serious health hazard. The mechanic can take your old battery to a recycling centre or treatment facility. Be sure to list this as part of your service, unless you already have a recycling centre or garage in mind to take the old battery.

Car battery purchase

If you don’t have a replacement battery ready and the garage doesn’t stock the right one, some mechanics may offer this service for a small fee. Be sure to provide the mechanic with the money to buy the new car battery for you. Your mechanic can go to the shop, get the right battery then return to the garage to install the new battery straight away.
