Find A Transmission Installer Near You

A good repair shop that can diagnose and install a replacement transmission can be hard to find – especially on short notice. We can help you find a shop that does quality transmission diagnostics and installation for a fair price.

We also include a guide for fair prices for both replacement transmissions and installation labor for the most common transmission models.

What Transmission Do I Have?

How to Save Money:

We try to recommend repair shops more likely to install a remanufactured transmission that you purchase on your own for cost savings. When buying a transmission through a repair shop or dealership, you generally will pay $300 – $800 more.

When buying factory direct, you can save $300 – $800 from what the shop will add as their markup on the transmission. Get a factory direct estimate by text message + email by clicking here.

Questions to ask when calling local repair shops:

Note: Before calling, have your 17-digit VIN# number (from the vehicle dash, door or an insurance card, registration or title) handy.

Do you install transmissions? Can you quote me a price for installation?
(Check the guide table below for fair labor prices. Labor costs can differ by area.)

What is your hourly labor rate?
(Typical rates average $75 – $115 per hour)

Can I have the transmission shipped to your shop for install?
(If you are purchasing directly from a company selling a remanufactured transmission)
