We are able to rebuild any type of transmission in house. This enables us to offer a very flexible service to suit our customer needs and offer a full fitting service if required.We carry a large number of re manufactured manual transmissions in stock, all come with a 12 month unlimited mileage warranty and as standard we offer a free collection and delivery service on all loose units. All our units are built to the latest specification ensuring the best build possible.
Not every transmission requires a full rebuild so we offer a repair service where appropriate and can strip down your own transmission, thoroughly examine it and give you the cost of any repair. This service carries a 12 month warranty on parts changed.
