Battery Centre, South Africa’s most reliable battery distributor, has opened its doors at a new location in Plumstead. The outlet has moved from Mowbray under the careful stewardship of ‘The Battery Professor’, Chris Smith, who’s devoted the last decade to going above and beyond for his clients.
It’s the extensive network of Battery Centre franchises that have made it the iconic battery provider it is today. Each and every Battery Centre owner takes pride in the management of their outlet, ensuring the highest level of quality and service, no matter its size or location.
Smith is excited about the future of the new Battery Centre – though change brings with it the expected challenges. The previous outlet was the sought-after battery provider in Mowbray, with a diverse clientele who relied on Smith and his team for their expertise – both in regularly ensuring the quality and safety of their batteries, and in emergencies, when Smith would undertake call-outs to homes and businesses.
According to Smith, this level of service will remain unchanged at the new location. He’s committed to providing 24/7 service to all new and existing clients, in line with the superior service levels Battery Centre is known for.
“My clients can call me at any time. I give them advice freely and always honour warranties if necessary. Times are tough for many people, and a battery can be a big expense. If you’re purchasing a battery, you want to know it’ll last. That’s what I’ve always aimed to provide – security and peace-of-mind for the client,” explains Smith.
Smith also prides himself and his team on never fitting or replacing batteries unnecessarily. He’d rather set to work testing and checking the battery. As he sees it, not everyone has the money to replace a battery at the slightest sign of failure.
“Having a client tell me I’ve helped them or a friend or family member when they’re in trouble is always an assurance we’re doing things the right way. Life is difficult and people often need a lift. We don’t just run our business on batteries, we run it on integrity.”
