I decided to let the garage do more work on my car and they were quick and had great communications throughout. Starter motor an fit. MOT Change reverse light wiring
Courteous and friendly staff, my job was dealt with promptly as I called earlier to confirm booking. Would definitely consider using again if need arise.
Great service and a quick turnaround
Will go back to have more work done
Great service, would defo recommend
Having put my job on the WhoCanFixMyCar.com platform, I decided to go with AM Repairs as they were very responsive. They answered all my queries promptly and thoroughly, and made efforts to accommodate me at short notice. The original quote for servicing my car only changed because I needed a new xenon bulb and they swiftly informed me, obtained and fitted it. After dropping off my car, I took a chance to enquire about doing my MOT, having realised it would be due end of the month. I was pleasantly surprised when Allan said that they would try and get that done for me before I returned - and did. I would have no reservations recommending AM Repairs and am certain I'll be going to them for all my car repair/service requirements now!
Great service, very easy to deal with, told me exactly what was wrong with my car even though i only paid for a service. Will definitely use in the future.
Very polite collected car call to tell me passed Mot but will need new brakes soon, was told could do that day if required so agreed. So full service Mot and new brakes £276 very good will use again and would recommend.
AM Repairs collected and return the car from my home for the diagnostics with no issues and in a timely manner. Communication was prompt and effective. Highly recommended.
Very good and fixed brakes quickly would recommend
Very happy with the work these guys have done. They've also made a few recommendations in regards to my existing car issues and are happy to do the work as soon as I can give the car away. Had to pay extra for the drop off/pick up service just because of Dartford Crossing, wish it was free... Anyway, would use these guys again!
Very good price,but garage too far from me to get my car there with a near worn out clutch .
Very good experience. I had to wait a while for the parts(OEM - btw) but other than that all OK. All very friendly, very helpful, answering all my questions. Already thinking about the next job.
Really great experience would definitely recommend 100%
Great team that's works there. They all friendly. The convo wasnt dead either.
The job was done on time and everything was expected was done and no added price
Took around 4 hours to do the Full Service + MOT. It would be nice to know what kind of oil was used and what parts have been changed for the full service as I have no information about it. Other than that - all good.
Had a service on my car. Would use again :-)
Excellent, Friendly, Spot on Job. Would reccomend.
i really recommend this garage
Work was completed at price quoted (cambelt). I asked for other work to be done at same time (brakes) as pricing seemed to be good value. Updates were provided during day, and service was efficient and professional. Happy with this garage. Would go back again.
Great service, kept up to date throughout
good and fast, thank you
Excellent service and very professional
Fantastic service, friendly, polite and helpful. Waiting room was clean and spacious with coffee making facilities and toilets. I had my wheels realigned and was in and out in 45 minutes despite it being fairly busy. Highly recommended.
Very helpful adviser job carried out to my satisfaction and very good price
Work was carried out perfectly.
Excellent work done, this is the second time I have used MobiTech. I recommend MobiTech for all vehicle repairs.
Lee was very friendly and helpful in sorting out my brakes for me. Reasonable price too. Highly recommend
Friendly mechanic got the brake pads changed very quickly which was convinent. However, after speaking with another mechanic they said that as it was only the back break pads they would of charged me less than what I paid. Would go back again but would query the price.
Very happy with the service and friendliness. I was asked to bring my car down to have it checked first and then went ahead with the work. I have booked him for another job in the next two days. I would definitely recommend.

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. If you would like to understand more we have a dedicated page for brake repairs.
