delivery and installation is the hard part, you'll pay through the nose for something like that. But any self respecting helpful type man will be able to fit a car battery. I would initially suggest trying your local breakers/scrap yard for a replacement battery, they will be the cheapest.

However if fitting really is an issue any halfords will supply and fit a new one.

I realise that if you do not have a car to get to halfords, this may be a problem, however I think you can order from their website, but again you will have a fitting issue.

fitting is a ten minute job and is as easy as can be , you will need a couple of spanners thats all

recovery may cost you 100+ quid so why not simply phone your local mechanic up and ask him to pop over and install a new battery , should cost 50 quid all in , a cheap battery will be 30 quid and 20 quid for his time , dont forget to mention a cash job to entice him to do it out of hours

cheers peeps, will phone local scrapyards up now thanks again

i wouldnt bother with a scrapyard to be honest, for the sake of a few extra pound you may aswell buy new.

somethings are best replaced with new imo and a car batery is one. tyres are another.

If your buying new I can recommend Varta batteries over your standard Halfords ones, your local motor factors (yell.co.uk) should stock them :)
