One-stop battery shop does a power of good

By Holly Tregenza

IT’S a miserable day and you run out to your car, soggy and wet.

You turn the key in the ignition and hear… nothing.

No hum of the engine or buzz of the heater warming up.

It’s a low level disaster - there’s nothing worse than trying to fix your car in the depths of winter.

“It’s the time of year when batteries are most likely to die. We have batteries for cars, trucks, tractors, motorbikes, golf carts, you name it,” Kyabram Hire and Batteries’ Andrew Porch said.

“We also have deep-cycle marine batteries for caravans and RVs.”

The team offers mobile or on-site battery testing, diagnostics and load testing.

“We’ve had a few people come in and say they need a new battery, we’ve hooked it up to the diagnostics and it’s been fine, so they’ve saved money,” Andrew said.

As well as free battery tests and fitting, the team offers a July-only special of $20 off a new battery when you trade in your old one.

But like it says in the name, they’re also the local destination for hire items. Marquees, dingo diggers, coolrooms, trailers, pumps and a whole lot more available right here in Ky. They’re also the local agents for BOC and Elgas.

Kyabram Hire and Batteries is at 29 McCormick Rd, or call 5852 1634.
