My Truck Driver “Braaied” the Truck Battery

My Truck Driver “Braaied” the Truck Battery

“My driver called me and advised that the truck’s battery was badly burnt.  I thought ‘no ways, how is that possible?’ He sent photos and I couldn’t understand how a battery could be that badly damaged to the extent that the battery casing and cables had all melted. In my anger of course I said, ‘You had better have been braaing some good steak!’. 

On a serious note, this is a problem and it is important for customers to be aware that looking after the battery is a critical responsibility which falls to them. In this article I would like to point out a few things that can assist our customers to avoid similar occurrences, albeit not as disastrous as ‘braaing the battery’.

Are battery sellers pulling the wool over our eyes? Probe shares tips to put you in the driver’s seat

“I don’t trust these battery sales companies.  I bought a maintenance-free battery only find that it is dry after some time. They pull the wool over our eyes and don’t sell what they advertise!”  

 

Does this sound like you?  This is often the sentiment of dissatisfied customers, made all the worse should a dry battery occur just as the summer holidays are about to kick off.
