The 911 feels so much better! Thanks to Transporter Werks it is so much easier to drive. The shifting is so much smoother and a joy to drive. I think this is how the shifting most have been when it built, in the first place. It just

I have intended to write this for months but we have been busy, in part, enjoying our VW camper. I want to let you know how much I appreciate all the things that TW has done to my van. Everything that was suggested:

Very Frustrating, Never Again.\r

Avoid this place, estimates and quotes do not mean anything, Only opens the bank account and will NOT get jobs completed. You will not be happy.

It is no doubt in my mind that Sean is passionate about his work. I also have no doubt that Sean is capable of doing excellent work. If one is mechanically inclined and on a budget, however, the shop may not be for you. Sean gave me

The folks at Transporter Werks have cared for my 73 VW Camper and my 74 Porsche 914 as if they owned them for over nine years. From simple valve adjustments to full frame-up restorations, I know their recommendations, parts and service

After searching for many days to find a suitable shop to take my 1956 Beetle, I decided on Transporter Werks. Sean Fraser, owner/operator, and I spent many hours searching for the best route to restore my Beetle after its rear end

My experience with Transporter Werks has been outstanding! I purchased a Westfalia in Arizona and had it shipped directly to their garage in Raleigh. Sean and his crew handled everything from getting the van unloaded from the truck to

I recently brought a friend to pick up his car that this shop repaired, I was very impressed with a sand rail that they were working on while I was there, So Impressed that I'm considering having them Install the same Fuel injection system on my VW powered dune buggy. The mechanic was very knowledgeable and informative about the work he was doing and didnt seem to mind a bit that I had 50 question, My friend was very happy with the work done to his car and the charges seemed reasonable. I'll defineatly use them in the future

i have been going to transporter werks since i first got my vw ('72 beetle) 4 years ago, and i am completely satisfied with all aspects of the service i received. Sean and his crew at transporter werks have done a range of repairs on my beetle: body work, rust repair, engine, carburetor anything i've needed. They were all straight up and very helpful. I've been in Virginia and South Carolina and still use Transporter Werks for any repairs or maintenance that i need that i can't do myself.

the bills that i've gotten over the years have always been very reasonable. before each big project, (the engine swap, floor pan rust repair, and paintjob/body work after a fender bender) Sean would give me a fair estimate of what he expected the job to take but cautioned that ya just never know what you're going to find.

after each job, sean would always tell me to give him a call if there were any hitches and that he'd take care of 'em. i never had to take him up on the offer (all his work has served me well over the years) but i'm sure if i did he would take care of it.

overall, Transporter Werks has been a true asset over the years. they are honest, fair, and extremely knowledgeable

Pros: good service, advice, and quality work

Cons: long haul from SC to raleigh

Do not go to this place for any kind of repairs. Seriously, it is a rip off and he will do it with a smug smile. Doesn't give estimates, then when you show up, he has already fixed it standing there with a bill in hand. Twice, I've been taken for. First time I let it slide believing him, but the second time was ridiculous. $750 for ball joint repair! If I can deter one person not to get ripped by him, it will be worth it. good luck!

I have worked on, owned and raced vw's all my life. I recently had shoulder surgery and could not work on my 1970 Westfalia (vw van) I converted to a watercooled motor. I wanted it fixed in time to drive to an event in the mountains. It needed a throw out bearing replaced. a simple job remove engine replace the bearing and anything we felt that it needed before reinstalling. After a few weeks sitting at the shop I started calling. I was lied too a few times, next week, tomorrow, "checked it out". They couldn't even find the key when I showed up unannounced. I found it! I know how busy it gets around a shop so after talking to Shawn I thought I could rely on his/ his shops work, he seems very knowledgable about vw's, I enjoyed talking to him. I should have listened people that have asked me to work on their cars after taking it here. I had a bill for over $4,000 when I picked my van up SHOCKED! and I was told I would have to just get in it and drive because the fuel injection was acting up, but it would clear up after driving it a short time. There was also a wining noise when I started it up. I immediately knew it was coming from the bearing and clutch that they replaced. At that point I knew I had been had. I did'nt say anything at the time because I knew I can fix it myself, a few adjustments. So I sucked it up and held my tongue, I did not want my van back in that shop I wanted it home. I was charged for fabricating work that I know now was not done. I did see some new bolts, I was also over charged for several parts and especially the labor which was most of the bill. A day later and it wouldn't even start. Since I have had to fix or tighten most of their work and even replace parts. I continue to find problems with their work the more I drive it. It makes me sick to think that I paid so much for such a crappy job from someone I thought I could trust. Don't go here for any work on your VW if the work is difficult maybe just guidance and advice.

Pros: Close to Raleigh, Knowledgable advice

Cons: Poor quality work service, a lot of cars that found their final resting place.
