Interstate All Battery Center Demonstrates Speed of Expertise
That’s what Rob Ash of Andover, Minn., learned after a recent trip to Interstate All Battery Center in Coon Rapids, Minn.
Rob said he visited the store at 6:50 p.m. one weeknight – 10 minutes before closing time.
“My plan was to walk in, buy the battery and get out of their hair and let them close up shop,” he said.
He bought the Interstate MT7-AGM battery for his Chevrolet Suburban, and the guys at the store asked if they could install it for him right then.
“I said there’s no time,” Rob told us. “They say, ‘Sure there is – We’d be happy to do it for free.'”
Rob told them about a safety bracket over the battery and that they’d need a few extra tools. No problem, the team members replied – they’re familiar with Chevy Suburbans; they knew exactly which parts they’d need.
Safety gloves: check. Memory saver so the radio won’t lose its presets: check. Work light for tinkering under the hood after dark: check.

“When finished, he shows me where he’s putting the date stamp on my new MT7, and at 7:02, I’m driving away,” Rob said.
Rob said he has always replaced his own batteries, but the Coon Rapids store showed him the value of trusting the experts.
“Thank you for showing me what Interstate Batteries is all about,” he said. “You can bet I’ll be talking about this experience to many, many, many other people.”
