Buying Wholesale Transmissions Can Save You Money

by | Feb 11, 2014 | Auto Body Parts

Buying a transmission can be a costly repair, but there are ways that you can get a very high quality wholesale transmission at a fraction of the new price. These are rebuilt or remanufactured transmissions, but it does matter who is doing the work on the transmission.

You may also be able to find a used transmission in a wreck or parts lot that will allow your mechanic to switch your existing transmission for a new one. This is usually only a good idea if your options are limited or you have a vehicle where other options are not available.

Rebuilt or Remanufactured

A rebuilt transmission is literally checked from the interior through to the exterior. It is carefully examined and evaluated by a professional transmission specialist and all worn or defective parts are replaced with Original Equipment Manufacturer or OEM parts. However, the specialist also has the benefit of reading any TSBs or Technical Service Bulletins that may have come out about specific transmissions.

This means that any issues with a transmission sold in a new vehicle can be addressed and corrected at the time of the rebuild, actually leaving you with a higher quality wholesale transmission when compared to what it was when it was new.

A remanufactured wholesale transmission is basically the same as a rebuilt transmission other than the service is done by a factory, rather than in a privately owned shop. Both are good options and both will provide you with a low cost option to what will be sold as a brand new transmission.

A Used Transmission

While all wholesale transmissions will typically be used to some degree, you may be able to find a transmission at a parts yard or pick-a-part lot that can be dropped into your current vehicle. This is perhaps the most risky option as there is not a warranty or guaranteed on the condition of the transmission or how long it will run. It is really a “as is” option that may end up costing you more than a rebuilt or a remanufactured in the long run.

Wholesale transmissions are a good idea for virtually all vehicles. Deciding between a rebuilt or a remanufactured transmission is largely a personal choice and one that you can discuss with your transmission service and repair shop. Just make sure you understand the difference and take into consideration any warranties or guarantees that may be different between those two options.
