You can try eBay but I think that finding a Buyer at any price will be difficult. Particularly as a replacement battery will cost, not far short of, £100.00.

p.s. Are you sure that you have that number correct as that Serial number does not come up on any of the battery Sites that I visited.

Have a look on Ebay for similar machines and you will get a rough idea of the expected price.

thanks for the advice, cant find similar machines but got the battery serial number (vgp-bps13/b) and the battery costs around £50. would it be better for me to purchase this and sell or just sell on its own? and how much do you think I should aim for?

Buy a new battery and give it to your Mum, you'll get better value that way.
