Everyone at this garage was extremely helpful from the lovely ladies on reception to the owner of the garage who answered an out of hours call - I would recommend them for their brilliant customer service and repairs to anyone
BMW Mini front control arm bushes replaced. Good service, quick, good job done. No problems. Price was higher than first quoted, but this was agreed after my clarification of exact parts needing replacing, and before any work started.
Would recomed to others
I couldn’t believe my luck that my car had come up yet again with the same fault egr valve. The garage contacted me and had to arrange pick up of my car as it wasn’t drivable but the garage sorted this for me and due to having no car the garage even gave me a courtesy car while mine was in for repair. When the garage looked at car they told me that the intake manifold was blocked so needed cleaning out which to me was music to my ears as it was a new egr valve on the car. They kept me informed on everything that was happening to my car and even rang to tell me that someone had put the wrong fuel in to which is why my car wasn’t drivable. The guys at the garage drained my tank and cleaned the fuel from the engine. After I picked my car up there was a slight issue but after ringing the garage they sent me the courtesy car back and took my car away to be looked at which I was impressed with as they did this within 30 mins of me calling. They are friendly and polite and will always keep you up to date with everything that they do. These guys do a great job. I would recommend this garage as from now on if I have any issues with my car again I know where to go. Well done guys and thank you
Highly Recommended!! Cannot rate this garage enough! Great price, excellent service and they went above and beyond to help and put up with all my stupid questions. I have spent a lot of years dealing with garages and am so pleased to have now found this one for future work. Thank you Dexter and team, you have been amazing! :-)
Helpful and pleased with the work that was carried out
Great customer service, friendly and courteous staff, comes highly recommended.
Great customer service from Dexter who came to pick my car, dropped it off end of day. MOT fail at a different extortionist garage just before Christmas travelling and Dexter saved the day sorting out all fail items and advisories for a very reasonable quote well below the others including re-MOT. Would definitely recommend.
Love, friendly family business. Reliable and reasonably priced.
Carl was brilliant, cost was as per the quote and car is running well. Would recommend
Outstanding service from Carl at CB Auto. What a great experience, not having the car break down - that was stressful - but the knowledgeable and swift help from CB Auto. Carl knew instantly which part had failed just from listening to the engine. I'm an instant fan. Carl and CB Auto will be taking care of my vehicles in future.
Excellent service. Quick response to advent, arranged a convenient time to visit. Very professional, all work carried out to a high standard. Will definately use Carl again. Good honest reliable mechanic.
Excellent service. The gentleman was very thorough and cheked every nook and cranny for my car issues. Only issue was he was very late picking up and dropping off my car... but his manners, skills, and quality of service was exceptional, which more than made up for it.
Carl is an excellent mechanic, reliable and very reasonably priced. Has done work for me before and will be using him again in the future. All round decent guy, friendly and no nonsense. Highly recommend! Cheers Carl!
Great service, knowledgeable team, will be back!
Fantastic customer service. My car (honda civic). Garage checked damage to my car after driving through a very deep pot hole in the rain. Damage was O2 sensor and shocks. Also gave advice about wear on front discs and pads. All work done in a half day without appointment. Also checked on line that all the work completed was a better price (cheaper) than other on line garage.
A great company friendly staff speedy work and good prices. I cant thank them enough what they've done for me, Would highly recommend toe to everyone
Good communication, thorough mot test, thankfully passed!! Best price in the area, nice surroundings and a live feed so u can watch the test being carried out, would highly recommend.
It was good
Highly recommended! Rick got in touch and gave me a quote, he got the parts I needed and was at my home within two hours!! All front brake pads changed and I got him to change the disks too as they were badly worn. (hence increase in quote price) All changed and back on the road in less than an hour. Fantastic guy, brilliant service will definitely use again thanks!
Very good, quick and easy
The mechanic was very friendly arrived on time and carried out the work to a high standard
Rick arrived as expected, he was very pleasant and courteous. Completed the job efficiently and I'm completely happy with the work carried out. As the work was carried out at my home it takes the hassle out of dropping it off at a garage and having to wait or having to rely on someone to drop me off to collect. I would definitely recomend Rick and will be using again in a couple of weeks for a service. Thank you.
Awesome Service, price as quoted and additional work explained and actioned.

extremely happy with the service they provided, would highly recommend them to others and should i have any other issues i will definitely be going back. The lady is lovely and they offer a excellent service, they put the customers mind at rest.
Nigel and his team are a very friendly and conscientious bunch. They go out of their way to ensure your experience is quick, simple and fuss-free. My car was picked up and dropped off at work and payment was convenient through their portable card machine. We were given a fair price and were very happy with the work done. A lot of garages could learn a thing or two from Nigel about how to run a professional and reputable business.
Highly recommended. Needed my car for a certain time and it was returned 10 mins early. They explained everything that was done and was cheaper than the garage I was originally going to take it to.

A brake, or brake pad is a system that safely enables a car to stop. Brakes get rid of the kinetic energy that helps the car move, which is done by using force of friction to convert this motion of energy into heat. Your car's braking system is made up of the following components: Brake discs, which spin with your car's wheels, Brake Pads, which push on the discs to slow the car, Brake Calipers which hold, and push, the pads, Brake Lines (or 'Hoses') which carry Brake Fluid, and your Brake Master Cylinder and Servo, which work to amplify the effort you use when pushing the brake pedal. Wear or failure of any one of these components will cause braking problems, requiring repair.
Modern cars have brakes on all four wheels which are operated by a hydraulic system and are made up of several components all of which are subject to stress which could result in breakage.
The front brakes in a car are typically the ones which play the greater part in bringing a car to stop as the weight of the car is thrown forward every time the vehicle comes to a stop.
There are different systems used for braking from one car to the next which suits the needs of the vehicle size and function.
The common hydraulic system uses fluid to apply pressure to pistons in the car close to its wheels to bring the car to a halt.
Some cars also have power brake assistance which helps to reduce the amount of effort required to apply stopping power.
If you need to have your brakes repaired there are several issues that could have caused the problem and several things that could be affected.
If you suspect you need your brakes repaired but your car is still drivable, there are some symptoms which could give you clues as to what the problem is.
The brakes are often the noisiest part of a car if there is an issue which means you should be able to hear a problem which cannot be said of many other broken car parts. Therefore, noticing the need for a car brake repair should be obvious. But you can check faulty brake symptoms here.
Brake pads are a critical component of a car and a vehicle cannot come to a halt without them functioning properly. Brake pads are fitted to the brake calipers which push the pads into the brake discs which are fitted to a car wheel. When a car is moving, the pads grip the discs to slow down the wheel and thus slow the car down.
A high amount of heat energy is created from the resulting friction as explained above and over time, this will wear brake pads down.
Brake pad replacement is a common job, the work to remove a worn-down-set is not complex so if you require a brake pad replacement, the repair will not be a lengthy one.
If you would like to understand how to tell when your brakes need servicing read our dedicated guide.
Brake discs are fitted to the car wheel itself and they are gripped by the brake pads.
Brake discs replacement is more expensive; the parts are more expensive than pads. Often pads are placed at the same time the discs are replaced.
If a mechanic advises you to replace your brake discs, they will likely suggest replacing the pads at the same time due to a the low cost of the part and the little extra labour time needed.
The cost of brake pad replacement may vary depending on the car make and model. This is because there are different sizes of brake pads and the cost increases as they get bigger. For example, a Land Rover will require a bigger set of brake pads as opposed to a Fiat Punto.
We have written a brake price comparison guide if you want to learn more.
If you want a good brake pad deal, you can compare quotes from garages near you by entering you details at the top of the page.
If you specifically require brake disc replacement, the work will take a similar amount of time to a brake pad replacement.
However, as highlighted above, the cost will be more expensive that pads due to the parts pricing.
Brake pads are changed by removing the wheel and unscrewing the bolts which hold the part in place. The part is then simply taken off the brake caliper and a new brake pad is fitted. The same process will be applied for each of the pads that need to be replaced.
There are many other common issues which can arise with the braking system which are not connected to brake pads and discs issues. The brake lines are susceptible to leakage as brake fluid can leak from the system if rust is untreated. The master cylinder is also a part of the braking system which can become faulty. If you would like to understand more we have a dedicated page for brake repairs.
