Alvie is a great Guy. I have known Him since I worked for The Parts House Years ago. He has also done transmission work for me on 3 occasions...Never had a problem and the price was always fair...Thanks Alvie. Jason H Wood
Alvie is the most honest guy and does GREAT WORK on transmissions and now has a great mechanic working for him now on other automobile repairs. If you are looking for a great repair company I have to say he is the fairest and honest one I have dealt with, And his price are fair and he stands behind ALL WORK HE DOES. - Frank Heatwole of Yulee, FL
I was told by other large repair franchises in town that I needed a new radiator and transmission to which I was obviously suspect. In my search for quality mechanic's in town I found Alvie's based on the other reviews and then talked with him on the phone. He listened to what I wanted and didn't just try to sell me stuff. In the end he found I did not need either a transmission or radiator but just some leaks that needed repair. Been a month and running great! Thanks Alvie! - Nate Dickinson, July 17, 2015 Birdseye 5 Star Review
"Thank you for the great review and bringing us your business." Alvie
Alvie's has a customer for life! I was referred to Alvie's Transmission Service Unlimited Repair from another shop that I trust and respect and was not left disappointed. My issue was resolved quickly and respectfully with no hassles and 100% honesty. The guys did a great job with diagnosing and troubleshooting my issue with the utmost respect. If I am ever in need of automotive repairs I will look towards Alvie's from this point forward. Alvie's is proof that good mechanic shops still exist! Thanks, Alvie! - Michael Roach 5 Star Review on Birdseye 2-5-15
"It's good people like you who keep my doors open, thank you for letting me help you." Alvie's
By far the BEST experience I have had with any transmission shop or automotive tech in general was with Alvie's Transmission Service Unlimited Repair Service in Jacksonville Florida. Alvie has a passion for his craft and takes the time to make sure you know what's going on, how and why. Not only did I get a great JASPER remanufactured transmission unit from Alvie for a great price, but I came out of the experience far more informed about the details of automatic transmissions than I had before. Follow up support was top notch and I felt like I mattered as a client. I have recommended Alvie a number of times and my friends have come away with the same great experience as I did. I will be back the next time I need transmission work, without a doubt. Huge thanks goes out to Alvie, Matthew and the whole shop (which by the way is clean and very well organized too). You can't go wrong with Alvie's! - Keith, Birdeye Review 5 Stars
*TOP NOTCH** I am new to the Jacksonville area as I just moved here from Atlanta where it is extremely difficult to find a trustworthy mechanic. But Alvie, his wife, and the other mechanic Kevin are GREAT people and very knowledgeable. Although I only came in for a standard "oil change", they made me feel CONFIDENT & COMFORTABLE bringing my vehicle to them for any type of service. I am proud to say that Alvie's Transmission Service Unlimited Service is now my "GO TO AUTO-SHOP" ;-) - Leon
Alvie helped us so much last Dec. when our transmission died! He is very knowledgeable & answered all of our questions. His service was quick & made our Van run like new! Great Customer service and follow-up. - Heather
Want to express my sincere thanks to Alvie at Alvie's Transmission Service Unlimited Repair in Jacksonville Florida. I took my Dodge truck into him and from the moment I walked into his shop and saw it...I knew I wanted this man working on my vehicle Extremely well organized with every tool, part and piece of equipment immaculate and in it's own place...you could literally eat off his floors...I am not a mechanic by any stretch of the imagination...Alvie told me right off it may be a minor problem and he would check it out...as it turned out it was not...my Transmission was shot (had almost 180,000 miles on it). He then advised me I could go in one of two directions...I could replace it with a used transmission or a new JASPER re-manufactured transmission...he advised me based on his over 30+ years of experience...that if I put a used one in, I might get a good one that would last or I might get one that would go out in a very short time and they are risky (no warranty). He told me if he were I, he would opt for the new JASPER transmission with a three year warranty...I said Alvie, I am going to rely on your judgement and your experience and I'm going to opt for the new JASPER transmission...I know you wouldn't steer me wrong...to which he replied, "No, I would not...not intentionally anyway".
He then installed the new transmission in my truck and I have had it back now for over a month and it is running like new! I highly recommend Alvie and Alvie's Transmission Service Unlimited Repair Service, if you want to put your vehicle in the hands of a experienced professional and a good, decent, and honest man, take it to Alvie. Rest assured, it is in good hands.Go by and see his shop and say Hi. Tell him Dino sent you! - Dino Cox, Jacksonville Florida as stated on our Facebook Page!
Thank you for the kind words Dino, Alvie

- John Jackson
Thank you so much Alvie for the outstanding work you did on my Hummer. I have never been to a place that has such great customer service with a clean and comfortable environment and you fixed my truck in a timely manner, I am so happy I came to your shop. Thanks again!!
- Kenyata Hayes
Alvie has the best transmission shop in this city and stands by his work!
- Melinda Richards-Kirkland
We were passing through with an RV and the AC went. We found Alvie's, and they fixed us right up, no trouble. The thing that makes me rate them so highly is how refreshingly honest and down to earth Alvie and the mechanic were. They found the issue, we were able to get the part (a valve), and they let us bring the overheated dogs out to the hose for a cool down. Highly recommend, if you want someone you can trust who won't overcharge. Lovely people. - Testimonial by: Sarah W. of Oakville, Canada on Yelp, 05/12/2015
Very impressive and a AAA+++ rating in my book! First thing you notice is how clean Alvie's shop is....you could literally eat off of the floor! And if a man pays that much attention to the details of his shop....well that was selling point number one for me. Number 2, Alvie was very honest and upfront with me. He could have sold me on the idea that I came to him with and made a ton of money, but it wouldn't have been the best way to go in the long run. Because of his suggestions and forethinking, I now have my transmission back! He is fast, he is detailed, he has many years of professional knowledge and I will... hands down... go back to him with any vehicle I have that requires transmission work. Hats off to you Alvie!

Alvie, "Thank you Mr Langdon for allowing me to help you with your transmission concerns. We at Alvie's wish for you many years of Smooth Shifting."
Our transmission failed outside of Jacksonville Florida Christmas Eve as we were driving down I-95 from out of state. Alvie could not have been any more accommodating, waiting for our tow and keeping his shop open until we could secure a last-minute rental car. The warranty company got him the replacement transmission late New Year's Eve, and he called me at noon on New Year's Day to let me know that we were good to return home. He literally had worked through the night and next morning (New Year's Day I remind you) to get me and my family back on the road.
He even called to make sure that we made it home safely. We owe him a debt of gratitude for his kindness and dedication. I can't even imagine how the ordeal would have turned out had we not had the "fortune" of breaking down a few miles from Alvie's shop. - Scott Gordon
Alvie Rock's! Alvie has done multiple transmissions for me over the years. Never a problem with any of them. Reasonable rate for top notch work! - Lance Semones
Had Alvie built a 700R and a Turbo 400 for me both are working up to my expectations , The 400 is behind a 525 cubic in in a 69 Chevelle SS. I have sent may jobs to Alvie and they were all satisfied. - Donnie Effler of Jacksonville Florida
My wife's KIA Spectra had some serious issues with the transmission shifting erratically and very hard, and no overdrive. Found several recommendations on the Internet regarding Alvie's, so decided to take it to him. He said he didn't work on KIA's but would try and run some diagnostics and see if he could help us determine if it was a very expensive issue or a cheaper issue.
He called us back soon and told us it appeared to be an electrical issue, and should not be extremely expensive to fix. He also recommended another shop to us and told us they were very good and trustworthy. We took it to the shop he recommended and total out the door cost for repairs was $577.00 (wow...saved us a couple of grand!)
Transmission now works perfect and we are very happy and thankful. Alvie really helped us with his diagnostics and referral. This man is one very good and honest person, and we will recommend him to anyone who has transmission problems. On a scale of 1 to 10...he's a 100 plus! - Robert Young of Jacksonville Florida
