At one time or another, a car owner experiences this motoring disaster - a dead battery - which is cause for hair-pulling, name-calling, and head-banging frustration. Unfortunately, there is often no sign that one's car battery is about to conk out. So, for the busy professional does not have the time to do periodic checks, the car battery will usually go dead at the most inconvenient time.

Motolite eases the experience with its Express Hatid service, the very first free door-to-door automotive battery delivery service in Metro Manila. Now, when your car battery refuses to start, all you need to do is dial 843-1111.

A Motolite service representative will ask you about your specific vehicle model and recommend the appropriate automotive battery, which is then delivered to your doorstep in 30 to 45 minutes. The service representative also takes care of removing the old battery and installing the new one as you just watch and wait in comfort. Delivery and installation are absolutely free of charge; you just need to pay the cost of the new battery. The Express Hatid service also accepts major credit cards for convenient payment.

And for even greater value, Motolite not only takes away your old battery for proper disposal, it pays you for the privilege. Under the Balik-Baterya program initiated by Ramcar, Motolite's parent company, any brand of used automotive battery may be traded in for cash discounts ranging from P100 to P670, depending on the specific battery model. The customer not only receives the cash benefit but also contributes to helping rid the environment of potentially toxic materials from improperly discarded used batteries.

Motolite's Express Hatid service is currently available in Metro Manila from 7am-7pm Mondays to Fridays, 7am-5pm on Saturdays, and 8am-2pm on Sundays.
