I was wondering upon opening the mobile website at Advanced Auto Parts if I could find a battery for my 2005 Prius and what if my car broke down. Could I tow my car to the nearest store for a battery? A good thing, there is a shopping cart tab, for auto purchases online.
The first thing that caught my eye however was the Your Vehicles tab at the top of the page. I entered my vehicle. There were Car/Truck, model, year, make and engine tabs. There were dropdown which were very easy to select my car’s specification very easy. I also would need to find the nearest store lets says my battery dies in Mentor. There was a convenient find my store button on the home page. I had trouble finding a battery price for my vehicle and if there was any in stock. On every page there is a button with the phone number. It is 9:00 on a Sunday night.
I wonder if I can get a price on a battery. within 1 minute I was able to talk to a customer service agent. He was able to quote me a price on a battery in stock and if I wanted I could drop off the car at the nearest store. If I needed to tow, this could save me money depending how close the store is, compared to my home. So in conclusion, the mobile website did not have the price and stock, but the toll free number had an agent answer online within 1 minute, I received the price and stock for the battery at an odd hour. So if your car is broken down and you need a battery, and all you have is your phone, you may want to give Advanced Auto Parts a try. You may get an answer in a few minutes, like I did. You can also get directions and you can store your car for future reference.
