Dead Battery?  We Can Help!

Did you know a battery can require a jump start in the hot summer months just as it would in the winter months?  Heat affects a battery’s internal chemistry just like cold does in the winter.

When you need a jump, sometimes your car battery is just drained or weak but still in good working order. Other times your car battery may not be able to maintain a charge even after a jump start. Some times a car could be parked for multiple weeks at a time where the battery has had a constant drain from the onboard electronics, or even drained by the concrete in the parking garage.

At Road Res-Q our roadside assistance technicians will run a battery strength test as well as a charging system test before providing a jump start to ensure you have the best possible information to make intelligent decisions.

Jump Start Service

A car may seem like it requires a jump start but there can be other mitigating factors that mimic a weak battery. Some of these issues could be a loose or disconnected battery clamps, corroded battery clamps, or a blown fuse. We are able to diagnose and service all of these issues including cleaning and polishing battery clamps or even replacing them in the field.

Did you know that many different makes and models of cars have their car battery located somewhere else in the car other than under the hood?  Sometime the battery is in the trunk, under a seat, or even behind one of the wheels. Road Res-Q technicians are familiar and trained to install your car battery no matter where it is located. If the car’s battery requires replacement, we have a wide range of batteries in stock so we could replace and recycle your old car battery. Most of the time you would have to drive to a garage and sit around for a few hours till they can get around to replacing your car battery. Instead of wasting time and canceling your appointments, we can bring the battery to you and install it where ever your car is located. While you are at work or at the doctors office, we could be installing your battery allowing you to get on with your day.

Did you know a diesel truck requires close to twice the amount of amperage to start verse a car? Trying to jump start a truck from a car can take an extremely long time and still may not work. Some trucks use 12 volt electrical systems and others have 24 volt electrical systems. Road Res-Q has the equipment to jump start both 12 and 24 volt systems. From light duty to heavy duty, we can Res-Q you!

I needed roadside assistance on the side of highway 95 around midnight and Road Res-Q was there in less than 20 minutes. After testing the battery, it was determined my car needed to be towed. Frank stayed with me until the tow truck arrived. He provided safety for my car and my family. It was almost 2am when we finally got towed. I highly recommend this company. Frank went above and beyond!

Great service! I was in need of roadside assistance late at night and Road Res-Q was the only service that actually answered their phone (instead of just going to voice mail). After trying to explain where I was located since I was from out of town, they completely understood my directions and were on scene within 15 minutes. They quickly changed the tire on my RV. They knew exactly what they were doing and and their price was very affordable. Will definitely keep their number for any future emergency when visiting the Nations Capital.

Came in 20 minutes to help with a flat tire, on a Sunday, in the pouring rain, fixed everything quickly and expertly, for a totally reasonable cost. Absolute life savers. Can't recommend them enough.

I have called several times over the last few days for help jump starting my car. Each time Farmers sent out a different company to help me. By far Road Res-Q was the best. The other companies were always 20-30 minutes late, got my car started and left without much follow up. Frank called me as soon as he got the call for help, gave me an arrival time and even beat it by a few minutes. Not only was he on time but he was professional, he checked the battery and told me why I was needing so many jump starts and offered to install a new battery for me. Initially I declined not because I didn't think he would do a good job but I wanted to get a second opinion. He didn't pressure me into a sale and agreed that I should get some additional quotes. Each quote was about where Frank quoted me or more so two days later I called him and had him bring me a new battery. He took the time to make sure it was done carefully and correctly. I stood over him watching him and asking questions but he was very efficient and actually very knowledgeable. He answered every question I had and made sure I was satisfied with his service. Highly recommend for service alone.

My 18 year old daughter's car got a flat tire on the Fairfax county parkway. We called AAA but due to the weather, she was looking at a 3-5 hour wait, after dark, on the side of a parkway. She was panicking and scared, never having dealt with car emergencies like this before. She and another friend tried to change it but were having issues trying to change it.I called AAA to get an updated estimate on timing, and they reminded me that I could call for an independent company and then file for reimbursement. So I called around and got voicemail after voicemail of other so-called 24/7 roadside services. Eventually I called Road Res-Q and talked to Frank. I explained the situation, where my daughter is located, and that AAA was saying 3-5 hours. He told me 25 minutes for a driver to arrive and assist her. Ridiculously, I cried a little, because I'd been super concerned but also too far away to be a real help. As much as I hope I'll never need your services again, thank you SO much Frank and Road Res-Q for taking such good care of my kid.
