Battery Clinic started in 2006 when the founder, Steve Huysamen, was searching for the right type of business to launch, viable business were hard to come by, one that could provide a sustainable income and a long term future for him. He overlooked many business opportunities and found that there was a great demand in the battery business in South Africa and saw the gap in the market. Car sales were increasing dramatically and the automotive industry was doing very well.
Battery Clinic started out small and has grown exponentially into a ‘new-generation’ battery retail outlet franchise in South Africa and we are very proud to be the first ‘one-stop battery shop’.
Battery Clinic specializes in battery fitment, testing, battery restoration and sales. We have top of the range machinery that enables us to re-new batteries, which helps to reduce manufacturing new batteries - putting our business on the ‘go-green’ map. These machines work at a productive rate; we can restore batteries to their full original strength; putting us ahead of the market. We are so confident in our restoration that we give our clients a 6 months guarantee. Our customers enjoy this option as they save up to 50% on the price of a new battery.
What makes us different?
Battery Clinic is the first registered franchise and trademarked battery franchise that offers battery restoration as well as new batteries. Our revolutionary renewing system and machinery allows us to take any scrap battery and renews it which makes it easier for customers to be able to afford to replace their batteries in this tough economical time.
Our trademarked brand and products
We have trademarked our new battery range as “Powerforce™” and our restored battery range as “Re-new™” and the range is proudly South African. We stock every product a customer may need for any battery requirement. We are the top one stop battery shop that offers the best prices. Sparky is our trademarked mascot.
We designed a mascot and we called him “Sparky” – he will be used to promote Battery Clinic and create a friendly face that people can associate with battery Clinic. He will be the branding on every Battery Clinic billboard and advertisement. Sparky will also go to all the public gatherings like school athletics days, rugby matches and all big sporting festivals. Sparky will also be manufactured in the form of soft toys and drinking bottles etc. Sparky will make Battery Clinic a front of mind reminder for any battery need.
