Note: We won’t comment on the prices of these individual garages since we simply don’t know – their batteries are sold on an individual basis in the garage.

What we will say is that we know that you’ll generally pay more in a garage for a battery than the price you can pay if you buy a battery online.

That said, some people prefer the advice of a mechanic and the assurance of knowing it’s the right battery for your car.

The above garages specialise in car battery replacement.

You can also use a car repair comparison service to find a local garage…

Online Marketplaces

We’ve done a ton of research on where to find the cheapest car batteries; and we’ve found online marketplaces, to be the lowest cost.

Why? Well, it’s the most competitive arena. It’s completely open and sellers fight on price.

Taking your battery to a garage or a mobile replacement service means they’ve pretty much got you over a barrel – giving you the choice of perhaps just a couple of batteries, and at the prices they want to charge.

Go here to ebay’s car finder. Then click the blue button with “Select Vehicle” on it. You’ll enter your vehicle make and model, or your registration. All the batteries that fit your vehicle will then pop up.

ebay is also where you can get Lion batteries, which we’ve found to be the best budget brand, by some distance. Here’s a full deep dive and review of Lion car batteries.

Car Battery Test Glasgow

The garages listed above, and pretty much every car repair centre in Glasgow will be able to test your battery for you.

Many of them offer a free battery check service, so don’t pay for that.

And make sure to ask the mechanic to show you the car battery test results. Specifically, you’ll want to check the CCA value, not the voltage. Voltage is just an indicator of the current level of charge in the battery at that moment. Whereas CCA is what measures the actual health of the battery.

Most car battery testers will show the State of Health (SoH) of the battery, normally a percentage result and with an accompanying recommendation. For example, it may say 82% (Battery Good), 68% (Battery OK) or 54% (Replace Battery).

It will also show the State of Charge (SoH), based on the current voltage.

Here’s what the car battery voltages you measure actually mean.

By the way, it’s also a good idea to get a car battery tester to keep an eye on your battery yourself. Then, you’ll know for sure when its health is starting to fail, and you can be ready and replace it before it dies completely. Here are the best 12V battery testers.
