During the Coronavirus outbreak and lockdown in the UK, we’ve been known to use our cars less as we stay at home more often. However, it’s important during this time to keep maintaining your vehicle so it’s ready when need to use it. Despite our cars nowadays being so technologically advanced, you may think it’s odd that the battery on your car could cause issues. Almost a third of breakdowns on the road are due to flat batteries or battery related complications. Therefore it’s sensible to keep checking and maintaining your car battery. In this article we address how to prevent a flat car battery when our cars are sat for longer periods on our driveways without use.
