Great service I will be using this company for any future repairs to my car
Very friendly & efficient.
Originally the quote was only for service but I ended up asking them to do more work including aircon and brakes, thus the higher cost, which I knew would be the case. It was long overdue. Andy at the centre kept me informed at every stage and tried to save money for me. The best was yet to come as he and the team stayed back on Saturday to complete the work and hand over the car to me. I got the car keys at around 7pm on Saturday. Can't complaint about their work ethics and commitment. 5 stars and I will use them again. Thank you guys.
first class ,honest service.
Excellent service from Carl and his team Final cost was £90 less that original quote. Took the car in and it was checked straight away and the fault diagnosed. Left the vehicle overnight and Carl called me at 10am to say it was all ready and done,
Brake pads/ calipers and new tyres - Work completed timely, minor issue that we had on drive home rectified swiftly and with no fuss. The offer of interest free split payments also appreciated. Will use again.
Great price and customer service I Highly recommend
Quick, clean and excellent job !
Great service, by knowledgeable friendly guys. Glad to find the garage had members of staff who were ex BMW service department staff- this gave me great piece of mind that the car was going to be fixed to a high standard. Had a list of jobs, and this was all finished within a day- Will be returning so long as I'm stationed down in the area. Thanks guys!
PGS were fantastic. Took my daughters car in, conducted their diagnostic check, ascertained a faulty battery. Replaced the battery in super quick time. Keep us informed of the progress. Highly recommended. Thank you very much to PGS staff, you guys were great.
Excellent garage all done at short notice would recommend this garage to anyone honest and reliable
The cost of adjusting the front wheel alignment was cheaper than feared. I did have the unexpected cost of two new rear tyres that were apparently out of shape and the cause of the apparent wheel judder, not that the front tyres needed balancing. Not driven far enough to test this yet.
Went to get tracking checked and adjusted but needed to purchase new tyres first.
Excellent, efficient and chip as chips!will definitely be a returning customer!..can definitely recommend!
Professional and efficient service. A professional and efficient service.
Excellent and friendly service
Really professional.phoned to re confirm appt.I was on a tight schedule dropped her off and 2 hours later,work was completed.
Polite and friendly service. I was quoted £29.99; however the final bill was £40.00. When the increase was questioned, I was informed that they had used better equipment to complete the wheel alignment. I feel that this option should have been explained before the work commenced.
Fantastic garage looked after my Mrs excellently couldn't do enough for her would recommend this garage to all outstanding service will definitely use again

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.
