I thought this business was a real gem up until yesterday. I had a less than two year old battery with a 60 month warranty that crapped out and they couldn't ""find me"" in the computer. Luckily I had kept the receipt and they did honor the pro-rated warranty.
The bad thing is that after I left to go back to work, my satellite radio custom-install wouldn?t turn on - figured maybe they didn?t reconnect the power or something. When I opened up the hood to take a look the guy had left his tool sitting on my engine! Glad that didn't *@#$ anything up because when I went back to return the tool to them and ask about the satellite radio not powering up, they were about as helpful as a screen door on a submarine. 6 people sitting around doing squat and all I got was ""it's not our liability."" Little help at all - told me to check the fuse. I get it, but I won?t go back and you probably shouldn't go there either.
I bought a motorcycle battery last yearfrom these guys. It sat on my shelf, as my old battery still had some life in it. Went to switch it out, and the brand new battery wouldnt hold a charge. Took it back, and apprently I ruined it. They should let people know that a battery on a shelf needs to always be charged. Would only give me 15.00 warenty money on a battery that was never used. I have been a customer for 20 years, and refered a lot of business to these guys. It seems the bottom line is the most important thing now. I will take my business elsewhere, where a company will stand behind a product, and let you know about maintaining a battery thats being stored. I am out 100.00
Bought a battery two months ago, now that its cold it failed to start my motorcycle. Took it back to them and they said I abused it. Really? I used it to start a motorcycle until it died. Said they won't replace "abused" batteries. Typical, nobody stands behind the Chinese crap they sell.
I needed a new battery and my husband came across Shelton Battery. He called and they told him that they had a refurbished battery for my car and they would hold it for me. When I got there Brian looked for it and said that he didn't have it. Needless to say I wasn't very happy. He then said that he had a new battery. Im thinking oh great how much is that gonna be. I ended getting a brand new battery for $54 and Brian even put it in for me(I dont think they normally do that). Anyway it ended up to be a good experience. Fast, friendly, and helpful! I would recommend for anyone that needs a new battery.
I am a car dealer and often need to replace batteries. If you are looking to replace your vehicle's battery but do not wish to pay the high cost of a brand new battery, then go to Shelton Battery and get yourself a reconditioned one in the $30 range. In most instances, they will even install it for you at no extra charge. As of this day, November 7, 2012, Autozone currently charges $115.99 for their Duralast Gold and $99.99 for the standard model. Wal-mart auto batteries start at around $80. Long gone are the days of new batteries in the $50 and $60 range, so Shelton is where I go!
