When it comes to replacement batteries, availability takes on an even greater emphasis as nowadays it is becoming increasingly obvious that there is no way around a ‘flat’ battery.
Supplier promises of excellent availability and depth of range are easy to make, particularly when the weather is fine and the demand is low, but it is as the temperatures drop and demand increases, that the substance behind the promises is really tested.
It is not by chance that Manbat is the UK’s largest automotive and commercial vehicle battery distributor. Rather it’s the result of investment, long term planning and a customer focused business ethos that demands that service is king.
Manbat is able to support members whatever the circumstances because it has built the infrastructure that is required for that level of commitment to its customers and many members will have experienced first-hand how the company has delivered for them when it really counts and their reputation is on the line.
The practical reality of this infrastructure investment means that Manbat holds approximately 300,000 batteries in stock throughout its 13 depots, spread across the length and breadth of the county. This stock holding allows the company to cover, to all intents and purposes, 100% of the vehicle parc and therefore provides members with the solution for every conceivable battery related challenge.
In addition to having this vast battery resource in its UK warehouses, Manbat also has the means to ensure that these batteries reach their destination when and where they are needed via a fleet of almost 60 wholly owned delivery vehicles.
