most tackle shops will do it. Take the rod to the shop, the tip is only attached by hot melt glue; a touch of heat from a lighter to remove it.... a bit of trying various tips for fit.... a touch of hot melt glue in the new tip, push it back on and align before the glue cools.

A decent shop will do that at no extra cost over the charge for the tip ring

Like haddock said its easy to do , take the old tip off and i put it on a twist drill bit that fits (leaving a little slack for glue ) rather than carry sections of rod around the tackle shops looking for correct type and size.
All the other info here

Hi
Maidstone Angling centre did one for me, took about ten minutes. Only charged me for the ring.
Anglers Den in Gillingham do rod repairs, don'y know if they'll do it while you wait.
Hope that's some help!
Regards
Martin
