About Us

Gear Change Ltd has been repairing and Refurbishing Gearboxes , Differentials and Transfer units for over 40 years and was formed in 2018 after purchasing the trading name and locating to East Brent near Highbridge Somerset.

Our people bring the Gear Change Limited vision to life every day, maintaining our place in the market and helping us grow. Our people bring all of these things with confidence, all together, with fun and a smile. 

The community is important to us as is the environment and we ensure that all the materials we use are ethically sourced and recycled where ever possible. Therefore the re-manufacture of transmissions uses only a fraction of the energy required compared to the production of new unit

We offer services to suit your needs such as Gearbox repairs and re manufacturing, differentials, rear axles, replacement clutches, brakes and Dual Mass Flywheels for manual and automatic vehicles and pride ourselves on quality and service. Free Gearbox collection and Delivery Service up to 100 miles and collection of vehicles subject to availability.

Our Services

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.
