Quickly Change Category Structure

I’m wondering if there is an easy/quick way to change categories and their structure.  See, we want to change the way we currently have products categorized BUT we have over 5000 products… so obviously going through them manually is the last option we have.

Is there an easy way to change the structure of categories?

For example this is how we currently have it:

Offroad
|_ Air Compressors
|_ Bumpers
....|_ Heavy Duty Front Bumpers
....|_ Heavy Duty Rear Bumpers
|_ Drivetrain Components
....|_ Etc.
....|_ Etc.
|_ Etc.
....|_ Etc.
|_ Etc.
|_ Etc.

Performance
|_ Etc.
....|_ Etc.
|_ Etc.
|_ Etc.

We would like to have it:
Car Brand One
|_ Interior
|_ Exterior
....|_ Front Bumpers
....|_ Rear Bumpers
|_ Drivetrain
|_ Etc.
....|_ Etc.
|_ Etc.
|_ Etc.

Car Brand Two
|_ Interior
|_ Exterior
....|_ Front Bumpers
....|_ Rear Bumpers
|_ Drivetrain
|_ Etc.
....|_ Etc.
|_ Etc.
|_ Etc.
