Hey Dale Sims does out standing work on rebuilding transmissions. He will also stand by his prices I should know after asking around and talking to other shops price shopping here in shreveport, I took my truck straight into Joe Rachals and let Dale Sims do the work after my truck was fixed the price stayed the same as he quoted. You got to meet him he is awsome at what he does. Thanks Kevin B.

I took my car by Joe Rachal Transmissions after my transmission quit on me. Mr Sims rebuilt my transmission and gave me a fair price, being a singal mom off two boys price is really what matters. Thanks Mr Sims and thank you for helping me out when my transmission went out.
