Tip for workshops: Routinely check car batteries – avoid problems, unlock additional revenue opportunities!

The battery test kit from GS YUASA including battery tester, smart button, point of sale material and manual.


According to the ADAC breakdown statistics from 2020, the battery is the component in the vehicle with the most frequent cause of breakdown (41.8 percent), with defects occurring mainly between the fifth and sixth year. GS YUASA’s battery test kit allows workshops to routinely check the batteries of all vehicles, significantly improve their customer service and avoid problems with failed batteries.


As long as there is no problem, vehicle batteries are rarely tested in workshops. Neither vehicle owners nor service technicians are aware of their condition. Although there are no external indications, a heavily discharged or defective battery may fail. Most customers expect their workshop to check and maintain all the functions of their car. If a battery fails shortly after a customer service or repair visit, this may raise questions about the quality of work or the reliability of the workshop. According to a judgement of the Düsseldorf High Regional Court in 2019, a workshop even had to pay compensation to the customer because he didn‘t inform him that the car needed repairing and caused damage.


By routinely checking the batteries of all vehicles coming into the workshop, you can significantly improve customer service while also avoiding problems with failed batteries. With GS YUASA’s exclusive battery test kit, workshops can easily test batteries and explain to the customer how important battery checks are.


The Test Kit includes:
  • Point-of-sale material, like counter stand and stickers.
  • GS YUASA Battery Tester for testing batteries quick and easy.
  • Smart-Button.
  • 100 Test Result Mirror Hangers for telling the customers that you have performed a battery test.
  • Manual that tells everything about testing batteries and performing battery tests in your workshop. It explains the benefits for the customer service and sales, as well as the results of the workshop field trials.
Benefits of routinely battery checking:
  • Higher profitability – increase your battery sales.
  • Improve your customers’ satisfaction and long-term loyalty.
  • Unlock new revenue potential.
  • Expand workshop’s service portfolio.
