We understand how inconvenient it can be when an issue arises with your vehicle, it always occurs when you are least expecting it and need to be somewhere important, so we have a car battery fitting service in place that couldn’t be any easier for you.
We have two different fitting options available which are garage and mobile that apply to members and non-members. Read the subsequent sections for further details.
Garage fitting service
We work with thousands of independent garages around the UK which have all been fully vetted to ensure that their operations meet the industry standards. We guarantee that your vehicle will be left in the hands of an experienced and trusted mechanic.
If you order before 5PM, you will be able to get the battery fitted the next day.
Mobile fitting service
Our mobile fitting service is for those of you who can’t get to a garage.
One of our professional patrols will be able to come and fit the car battery that same day regardless of where you are, whether it being at home, at the roadside or at work.
You simply need to choose the patrol fitted option after you have found your desired battery, then you can choose your preferred time and date.
If you order a RAC001-009 battery before 5pm or any other battery before 3pm, you can get it fitted the same day.
What do you get with the RAC fitting service?
We have thoroughly developed our service to ensure that it is completely convenient for all of our customers. See below for further details regarding the service and our batteries:

You can quickly get back on the road with our car batteries via our all-inclusive fitting service.
We guarantee that you will get the best car battery for your vehicles specific make and model and we have a “correct fit guarantee” in place. If you choose the wrong battery by accident, the patrol will let you know then help you source an alternative.
