After contacting the web site, QCR services was the only garage to come back with a quote, i agreed for them to carry out the work, it was done within the time they said, thanks very much. The two chaps that worked there, were very friendly and explained the job in hand i was back at this garage a week later with a radiator problem they suggested two options i chose on the spot and once again a very big thankyou
Did full service and added advisories for quoted price. Quick and efficient.
more than quoted as had a servce done at the same time.excellent service, collected and returned the car as promised. Impressed that they also cleaned a stain off the driving seat that i had got from leaving my window open. Will be definitly be using again.friendly staff, very helpfull.
I highly recommend this garage.Fixed my car in a very short time. Job well done
Helpful team at garage Had extra work done
very good garage recommend them!!!!
Matt carried out the necessary work very quickly and without any complications and was very helpful over when we could do this as we had a limited window for the work. Very professional service.
Great Service, Matt picked the car up in the morning, carried out a full service and had it back early that afternoon. I highly recommend Matt
Excellent service and communication from start to finish! Matt managed to fit me in at the weekend after a last minute cancellation. He never hesitated to offer advice and answered all of my questions quickly. He picked my car up just before 8am on Saturday, and had it back to me before 10:30am with all of the work finished and a very tidy job done indeed. His prices are more than competative. At over half the price of the local Vauxhall dealership for new front brake discs and pads, and rear brake pads including VAT and fitting for O.E parts. I'll definately be using him again, and recommending him to friends and family without hesitation.
Matt was very helpful and efficient. His price was great.
James carried out the work in an efficient manner and also adjusted the brake cable that was not part of the original job. Great friendly service done at a time that was convenient to me. Would definitely use again.
Very helpful and accommodating people. Workshop clean and tidy. Front brake disc and pads change was completed within the quoted 1 hour.Delighted to find a garage that does a great job.
Provided genuine Aston parts myself and James fitted at my home. My concerns over using a mobile mechanic to repair a prestige car were unfounded, James is a great guy who did the job expertly with no issues and the price was extremely reasonable, will definitely use again. Highly recommended to all car owners.
Very good contact and support with arranging parts needed for a fix.
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.
