Our Story

From the owner of GearboxesOD :

...Where you are at this very moment in time is where my sister was back in 2009 ...completely car-less !

She had a Corsa 1.3 with a severely damaged Gearbox and a local garage directed me to a friend of a friend who was about to

take advantage of an unexperienced young buyer... Not only was i charged over the going rate , I had paid cash & received only part of a Gearbox (empty shell)

I raced up there to sort this and after 3 visits got a full refund. This took a week of stress and wasted time.

I learnt a few things and realised the risky avenues needed to be avoided if I ever was to buy an a 'Used car part ' again.


It was well worth fixing my sisters Corsa as it was deemed pretty much ' Worthless ' without a working Gearbox...

This didn't need to be so stressful and in the end I had an Gearbox from an old timer who knew his stuff and taught me the best and only way to go about this.

He is now an outstanding Trusted Supplier for my company : GearboxesOD.com

A year later, after help from the Princes Trust (a dragons den style funding process) ...I set up GearboxesOD.com with many Trusted suppliers to get the job

done properly for future UK Gearbox buyers in need of a trusted source ! My team and I are now dedicated to making the whole Gearbox buying process : SAFER , EASY & MORE COST EFFECTIVE for the car-less people of today, perhaps this includes you...

All the very best ,

Mr P. Fourrier -
