Great service and straight up person chris the owner... told me the truck will be ready in a week and end up calling me earlier saying it’s done. After taking my truck to local shops and spending a heat of money. I found A1 transmission here on Facebook and I decided to give chris a shot and I took my truck 3 hours away from home. just honest and great people to deal with.

Chris and his shop were amazing to work with. He helped my Son and I with our 1987 Bronco project. He expertly diagnosed a significant unknown issue and worked with us on other miscellaneous issues and roadblocks (none of them caused by Chris).He went above and beyond on the job, yet his final price was the same as what he quoted at the beginning. Chris answers the phone promptly and communicated with us during the rebuild. I know he had more time in this rebuild than he originally estimated (again not due to Chris).The transmission looks new and my Son was so thrilled to finally drive the project truck after over 2 years of restoration work. I followed my 16 year old home from the shop, and at a red light my Son turned around and looked at me through the back window. He had a huge smile on his face and gave me a big thumbs up. Chris helped make this possible. I will definitely use A-1 Performance Transmissions in the future.

The entire team at A1 is exactly that, A1! Super friendly, extremelly welcoming, and know what they are doing. It was a long time coming for me to get my bulletproof'd 4r100 and as Chris said, built to handle the punishment. Highly, highly recommend anyone and everyone to go to Chris and A1.

The only reason i gave Chris and the guys a 5 star rating is because 10 wasnt available. I went to Chris after my 68rfe crapped out on me. He did not try to up sell me. He asked what i used the truck for and what are my plans and he gave me his options and recommendations. I will definitely use the shop for all my transmission needs. Thanks for the great work!

Chris and his team did a great job with my 4R100 transmission. It shifts great. He explained what went wrong with mine and took me back in the shop and showed me what he installed and what it takes to build a great transmission!!

Super clean shop! Cleaned around and under truck while it was being worked on. Chris knows his stuff! Knew exactly what our issue was before examining truck, and was spot on! Workers were clean and polite. Staff nice to our kids. We were stranded with this issue, and the shop made a spot to fit us in so we could get back to our 20+ hour drive!!! Highly recommend!

I had been having trouble with my 4R100 transmission in THE TRK. (2000 F350 Power Stroke DRW 4X4 292,000 miles) I have been researching different ways to go with it for a while, but truley wanted a new transmission and torque converter. The best solution for me came down to biting the bullet and taking the truck to Chris at A1 Transmissions in Flowery Branch, GA. Just a short ways north of Atlanta and an 8 hour drive for me. From all the research I had done, Chris is the best and most honest 4R100 guy on the east coast. I made arrangements with Chris and left for GA on a Sunday morning, spent the night in a local hotel and was sitting at the door step of A1 Transmission at 8:00 AM Monday morning. Chis's crew brought my truck in by 8:10 and got to work, Six hours later, I was driving away and MAN! What a difference!!! I never knew just how badly I needed this new (Custom Built by Chris)Transmission! If I ever need transmission work done on this truck again..... Don't think I will..... I'm calling Chris first. Beleave me, it was worth the trip!!! Chris did everything he said he would do and more, at the price he quoted, explained everthing he put into the new transmission and answered all of my questions. Could not be more pleased!

After driving all the way from Reno to A1 Transmission and then up to Virginia with my freshly rebuilt 4r100...with some towing in there. I am happy to report that the transmission is awesome. The A1 crew took great care of me and even replaced the seal on my rear diff while they had my transmission pulled. The shop is surgically clean and they are meticulous in their work. Highly recommended for all your drive line needs...especially trans work.

I was driving through GA on a road trip with my family, the transmission in my 06 Cummins had a total failure. I found Chris at A1 while waiting for AAA to pick us up. As soon as I got to the shop Chris made us feel very welcomed and helped arrange a rental car back home to South Florida. Chris made sure to know exactly how I intended to use the truck as to build me the perfect transmission. During the whole build he kept me up to date with details and pictures. I had a performance transmission built for this truck previously at home, Chris was able to build me a better transmission for a much better price than my previous "bullet proof" transmission. I've dealt with a lot of shops in the past, I would gladly drive the 10+ hours to have Chris and his crew work on my truck. I get nothing but good vibes and honesty from this shop.

HONEST!!! I just picked up my 2002 Toyota Tundra. I thought the transmission was failing. Chris and his crew diagnosed the problem, Fixed it, and sent me on my way. Cost, ONLY $300. They could have rebuilt the transmission and charged me a boatload of money. I would not have known the difference. I will always recommend them to everyone. They are very good at their job and HONEST !!! Thanks guys. the way you treated me, renews my faith in my fellow man.

Had Chris install a 4r100 in the 7.3 for me as my old trans was feeling its age and work load. Totally different driving truck now compared to the old sloppy and slipping trans that felt like a hydrostatic. I highly recommend A1 for any of your transmission needs. The shop is very impressive, operating room clean and organized and that right there is a major deal in its own. His attention to detail and help is awesome and why i made the 4hr journey to have a trans built and installed by him. If you want it done right take it to A1.

I had my truck towed to A1 with a locked up engine. Chris and his crew rebuilt my transmission and then did some troubleshooting on what was keeping the engine from turning over. It turned out to be the AC compressor. I had a compressor at home and Chris put it in free of charge. He also put brake front pads free of any additional charge because he didn't want me to drive an unsafe vehicle. The transmission shifts are extra firm now and I leave tire marks everywhere I go! If you have a Ford with a sad transmission Chris and his guys will rebuild it to better than new condition. I highly recommend A1 Transmission for any high horsepower Ford application.

Chris Garrett and his crew are very professional place was clean and organized. Two weeks prior to that we discussed when he could do it how much it was going to cost what was going to be done to it and the day I picked it up it was what he said and the price nothing change. I don't know of any place that gives a three year warranty. It was worth the trip from northeastern Pennsylvania to Georgia to get this transmission I am very happy. Thank you very much Chris and your crew. Thanks Royce Belles

Chris Garrett is THE BEST 4R100 trans Man there is. He and his staff are top-notch technicians and have the best customer service I have seen in a very long time. I highly recommend a Performance Transmissions especially for Ford Lightnings and Harley truck applications

One of the shops that I can say is honest and attention to detail is top notch. Chris has gone out of his way to make sure that the job is done right even when the issue was the error of another shop. Chris does work on your vehicle like if it was his own. I can't talk enough about how much of a pleasure it is to do business with them.
By far the CLEANIST shop in Ga!! You can eat off the floor not kidding.

Chris is a very skilled trans builder and went above and beyond to get me taken care of. My 2011 F150 Raptor's trans was starting to slip, overheat, and shift rough. I decided to go all out with a precision industries converter, exedy stage 2 clutch packs, sonnax zip kit, and a deeper pan. We found out that the stock valve body was causing issues and Chris got one in very quickly to wrap up the install. He answered all my questions professionally and took great care of my truck while he had it.

His shop is completely spotless and is very well organized. I've been taught that you can trust a man that keeps his place of business clean and organized. I have no idea how he does it either, especially with the amount of business he has coming in.

I can't thank you enough Chris, the truck feels 10 times better than it did stock. I'll be back for any future trans issues I have with my vehicles!

Chris has gone out of his way to help me even though I am 600 miles away. His finished work and pride that he takes in not only the product but, customer satisfaction is simply above and beyond.

That is why I am loading yet another transmission up and bringing it to him. Well worth the added expense knowing that it is done right.

Just listening to Chris Garrett I am amazed at the importance he stresses on doing the job right the first time. Also the fact that he has the cleanest shop around. Chris is an honest guy. If he does work for you I can guarantee you will go nowhere else and you would refer your friend to his shop. No doubts at all!!!!
