How to Shim an Aftermarket Battery

I just bought a '03 Cooper with low miles. It has an aftermarket battery which is not sitting properly in the battery compartment, thus the connections are not stable. What is the best way to shimmy and raise the battery up? Or should I just buy a new one that fits properly?
