Situated on Emmanuel Street just on the corner of Blackpool Road, in Preston many people drive past our workshop everyday without realising that they have just passed one of the largest vehicle repair workshops in the North West.

With 10 ramps, an 11,000 square foot workshop and a combined experience of over 100 years, Automatic Transmissions (Preston) are larger and better equipped than most main dealerships and we are certainly much more competitive on price.

Most garages and dealerships are unable to repair automatic gearboxes and as a result they typically charge £3000 plus for a replacement part. As a skilled engineering firm specialising in the repair of automatic gearboxes for over 40 years, we can usually strip the faulty gearbox down and repair it to such a high standard that we typically offer warranties to the same length as the main dealerships.

As you are not having to pay the vehicle manufacturers for a new transmission, the cost of our repairs can often be less than half the price of a new transmission.

Our great new waiting area has comfy seating and a clear view of the workshop. We also have customer toilets on site.

If you are looking to get a transmission repair then give us a call today on 01772 259 068 to ensure that you get the best service and value for money possible.

As you will see on the map, we are based within 10 minutes of the M6 and M55 motorways. As such, people from Manchester, Liverpool, Bolton, Wigan, Lancaster, Carlisle, Penrith and all northern cities can get to us within an hour or less. Remember, if your vehicle won’t drive we can come and collect it for a small expense.


We are the only FATE member in Preston and as such, we are the only firm to be a member of a nationally recognised body, dedicated to the science and craft of automatic gearbox repair. If your gearbox is broken, we can guarantee to fix it.



Hi Grant,

I just wanted to drop you an email to say that you for sorting out the automatic transmission. I'd be grateful if you could post the following review on your Facebook page. I'm not on Facebook so unable to post.

"Jaguar XK8

Rattle coming from rear of engine! Diagnosed in seconds. Price quoted was price paid. All staff were helpful and friendly. Photographs taken during the work and kept fully informed. Extremely pleased with the work and service would recommend this company very professional."

Kind regards,
