Car Battery Jump Start Service in Montana

When a car, truck, SUV, or recreational vehicle suffers a dead or depleted battery, it changes the dynamic of your day — and not in a good way. Not being able to start your vehicle means you are stuck in what was otherwise a busy, productive, or leisurely day. The appointments, school pickups, or traveling for the weekend are not happening until you get battery jump start service.

At Hanser’s, we provide RV and car battery jump-start services in Billings, Livingston, Hardin, Columbus, Lewistown, Big Timber, and the surrounding area. Whether your engine won’t turn over at a shopping mall, office parking lot, Southern Montana campground, or on a secluded back road, our tow truck operators have the tools and equipment to promptly give you a battery boost 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Why Did My Car Battery Die?

Although vehicle owners are usually diligent about oil changes, coolant fluid, tires, and brake jobs, few consider checking the battery on a regular basis. Like other aspects of an automobile, batteries require routine service. They will also wear out just like the rubber on your tires.

When people ask: Why did my car battery die? These rank among the most common reasons they needed to make a car battery jump start service call.

Extreme Cold

Frigid temperatures have a harsh effect on automobile batteries, and Southern Montana has its fair share of sub-freezing days. The average battery functions best at approximately 80 degrees. When it gets colder outside, the internal reactions between chemicals and lead plates slow down. After the temperature falls to 32 degrees or lower, your car battery works harder to produce the charge needed to start the engine. An aging model may require a battery boost to get going in the winter.

Infrequent use

Car batteries receive a charge from the alternator when the vehicle is running. But when they sit idle for an extended period, the charge begins to wane. And when a battery falls below 12.4 volts, sulfation begins to form on the lead plates inside it. Not only does the battery not have enough power to start your vehicle, but its life expectancy is also greatly diminished. To avoid needing a car battery jump, run the engine periodically so it can maintain a reliable charge.

Failure to Keep the Battery Clean

The green corrosion that appears on the battery terminals negatively impacts the flow of energy. This acidic substance can also eat away at the cables connected to the terminals. When this perfect storm occurs, even a fully charged battery may not be able to send enough juice to start your vehicle. The good news is that the effects of terminal corrosion, infrequent use, and sub-freezing temperatures can usually be resolved with a car battery jump.

RV Jump Start Service

Passenger vehicles are not the only ones that require an occasional battery boost. Vacationers also run into low battery problems and require RV jump start service at Southern Montana city parks, campgrounds, and sometimes remote locations.

That’s largely because travel campers require an enormous amount of energy to operate internal fixtures. While many people use solar rigs and small generators to power up their electronic devices, aging batteries cannot always hold a sufficient charge. If your leisure vehicle won’t start, Hanser’s provides RV jump start service to Southern Montana’s camping facilities.
