Wise winter storage. Smooth spring startups.
If you’re storing a vehicle over winter, your battery will need a little bit of TLC to keep it in tip top condition.
Even when your vehicle is tucked up for the winter, it’s still using power in the background, especially when it’s cold, and this can drain your battery.
So, what can you do to make sure you’re looking after your battery and that your vehicle is ready to spring into action when the weather warms up again?
Regular maintenance will keep your battery topped up and in peak condition over the winter, so the engine is ready to starts right when you are, the moment spring comes around again.
