Usually most high street car battery suppliers and garages and auto-sparks buy their batteries from a local distributor. If you can find who the distributor is then you are likely to get a decent service. For instance my local motor factors is a few doors away from their main distributor. I once had to return a faulty battery to the motor factor who before accepting it back asked me to go to the distributor who done a few tests, etc. Before I left the guy at the distributors said why not buy straight from us - We won't be any cheaper but at least you're dealing with the organ grinder. Obviously the distributor was going to make a larger profit from my purchase than selling at discount prices to the motor factor.
