5 Car Battery Delivery & Installation Options Detailed

When your car’s battery dies, it can be convenient to get a new battery delivered to you, especially if you don’t have a reliable method of transportation to the store. While this service isn’t widely available, a few companies offer it, and some will even install the new battery for you. Below, we have more details about these services.

What We Recommend

Your Mechanic and AAA are the most widely-avaiable options for mobile car battery delivery and installation. Both operate throughout the U.S., though AAA’s service is for members only. If you feel comfortable installing the battery yourself, Advance Auto Parts and AutoZone both offer home delivery for batteries. Neither store will install the battery at your home at the time of delivery, but both install batteries at retail locations.

Alternative Options

If none of the companies on our list are in your area or they aren’t able to meet your needs, keep in mind that you may be able to find a local company that will deliver and install car batteries in your area. For example, Mobile Battery Squad offers delivery, and installation services in Texas and Dugger Services serves customers in New Mexico and Arizona.

Amazon is also in the process of rolling out Amazon Home Services, which includes car battery installation. It is currently only offered in select cities, but has plans to expand. With this service, you place an order with a local professional who will come to you to install a new battery and dispose of the old one.[6]

Note that popular delivery services like Instacart, Postmates, and Shipt primarily deliver food and other essentials (such as over-the-counter pharmacy items). They do not currently offer auto parts delivery.[7][8][9]
