Excellent service, the price also includes 2 part worn tyres which was a must have, very professional and polite staff. I will go here from now on.

REALLY GOOD, GREAT SERVICE WOULD USE AGAIN
Excellent customer service gives confidence that the service was done well.
Yes was good experience
Really good service for front brake pads. They rang me and informed me at all stages required. Quick and efficient ... nice garage too.
excellent service, I was kept well informed through out the day of any work that needed doing and it was completed quicker than expected, would definitely use their services again
Great price. Great work. Very happy. Total price reflected an additional £5 + vat for 2 bulb replacement which is a very fair price. Would use again
Went well, price was as quoted. I recommend this garage.
This is one of the best garages I have used in a long time. I am definitely sticking with them long-term. A very courteous gentleman picked up the car and returned it serviced at a good price as well.
Took my car in to have the air conditioning looked at. Unfortunately the technician was unable to repair the fault but all credit to him for trying. He was at it for over an hour but as it turned out, the leak was somewhere inaccessible so it looks like I'll have to take it to a main dealer. I wasn't charged for anything as the fault wasn't repaired.
Excellent job again from Jordan! Would recommend this guy to anyone and you don’t even have to take your car to a garage cheers pal
Had to ring to see if the work had been done, customer service ok but could do better, tricky parking and not we’ll sign posted.
Fabulous service a little out of the way for me but will definitely be useing again well worth the journey excellent customer service and price thanks a lot Becca
Really friendly service. Great value. Will definitely be using again. Many thanks .

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.

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.
