Battery Express Delivery

Don't you just hate it when your car battery suddenly dies on you? Well it happened to us recently and we're glad that there's a quick and easy service that can remedy that now. Here's how it went down.

So the other day, I was going to do some grocery shopping nearby but alas the car wouldn't start and I suspected that the battery was dead. I wanted to make sure, but didn't have the tools, so I bought a battery charger complete with testers from Lazada, will write about that next time. Anyway, when my order was delivered I checked the car battery right away by charging it full, first and then revving up the engine. It worked fine but you'd hear the engine struggle before it could come alive. Anne suddenly asked me to show her how to start the car, so I turned it off to make a demonstration but it wouldn't start up again. I used the testers to check the battery and it showed that the battery was almost drained even though it was full only minutes ago. That's when we decided to get a new one.

Back in the day if find yourself in a situation like this one, it's either you'd ask a friend or relative with a car to go with you and buy the new battery or commute yourself to purchase one. Car batteries are generally heavy, so good luck with that if you're female. The good news is that you can have a new battery delivered straight to your doorstep and have the option of paying thru Cash On Delivery (which Anne loves so much) with the Motolite Express Hatid service.

I dialed their number and got connected to one of their agents right away. I was asked to provide the usual personal information one would be asked for any service that includes delivery, like your name, address, landmark, preferred payment method and contact number. Then the car information such as the model/year/make of the car, the plate number and the type of battery. It was around 4 in the afternoon when I called them and was told that their technician would arrive within the hour. I had a prior engagement that I couldn't get out of, so I asked them to reschedule the delivery around 8 in the evening instead.

Their technician arrived earlier than 8pm, he was friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and was equipped with tools needed to make the battery replacement and the necessary diagnostics. We couldn't take any pictures of how it went since it was already late and I had my 4-year-old son with me the whole time, forgive the lack of photos. Anyway, the technician took out the old battery and quickly installed the new one that we chose to purchase. We started the engine, which booted up smoothly, ran some tests and it was done. 

We opted for Cash On Delivery, paid him with the exact amount the agent told me to prepare over the phone, was given a receipt & battery warranty and he went on his way. He was in and out of our garage pretty quickly, now that is indeed hassle-free, definitely one for the books.
