Measures to take when your vehicle dies leaving you stuck on the road
Safety – The first thing that should get into your mind is safety. Are you safe from the oncoming and outgoing traffic? Is the area safe? These should be the first question in case of any emergency stop. If you are on a highway turn on the hazard lights (emergency flashers) and pull off the road into a safe area on the shoulders of the highway. If your vehicle has totally stalled down due to a dead battery or any other mechanical issue and can’t be driven to the shoulders of the highway, place a life saver immediately on the road to warn other motorists. Try to get help from other motorist to push the vehicle to the shoulders of the road where you will be safe from the speeding traffic.

Your emergency may be minor and probably you can handle it at the stop for example if it’s one of the battery terminals that had gone lose you can tighten it and continue with the journey.

I rang & within a few hours Marlon came to put a battery in my car. It’s the second time he has helped me out. He was quick, efficient & he also gave me some car care tips. Marlon provides excellent customer service & is just a lovely person. He’s honest & reliable. I’d definitely recommend him to anyone. Thanks Marlon. You’re a champion.
This service really surprised me. In a city where everyone is trying to make a quick buck, Battmobile seems, from my experience, to be genuinely trustworthy. Ken, who helped me in the office, was helpful and candid. He offered me an extremely reasonable price on a genuine AC Delco battery. Marlon, the mechanic, was amazing. He explained everything he was doing as he worked with a huge smile on his face. And he went the extra mile and cleaned my battery terminals of the acidic residue from my old dead battery. All in under 15 minutes. Truly impressive.
Great service right from the online chat down to the service. Marlon the technician came in, quickly worked on my car and got me up and running before I could even break a sweat in the Sun. Marlon tested my battery first to make sure it was actually the battery that was low, and then got cracking in changing the battery. Ali from the customer service side was quick to help me out, and very very helpful! GREAT SERVICE ALL AROUND! WILL DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!
Excellent and quick service. Serviced by a guy named Marlon who was really up to the mark in service delivery. He reached within 10 minutes of my call and did a battery change within minutes after doing all the required checkup.
I received an excellent service from the technician Marlon. He was very friendly and courteous and completed the job to perfection explaining to me the process nicely. Over all experience was great, in time and value for money. Highly recommend!
I have recently used services of Batt Mobile. I am surprised with the efficiency of this company. Marlon was the technician who turned up to fix my car. He was amazing, very polite, helpful and friendly gentleman. He fixed the battery issue in no time. Ali was also very helpful and friendly over the phone. I would highly recommend this company.
Marlon was amazing. He arrived at my house within 30mins. It was great: I'd just landed after a long break only to find car dead and we needed it for the next morning. Marlon came just after 11:30pm and was done in less than 10minutes. Fantastic service.
Very good service. I called 2 other services (battery guru and dial-a-battery) which didn't give a good answer, however Batt Mobile were very efficient. Mr Zafar arrived to my location in less than half hour and changed the battery. Thank you very much
