There was availability for the car to be looked at within 2 days. I used the collection service which was great as i got to work and someone was there to pick the car up. Within 2 hours i had a diagnosis and 3 hours later i had paid and the car was dropped off. They made the whole experience was so easy and it was easy to trust that they knew what they were talking about and getting to work required completed.
Prompt response and quick to get booked in. Excellent service, price and staff. Free courtesy car was a big bonus too!

Nathan was brilliant. Came within 48 hours and was the first to respond to our request. He came out after normal work hours once we were home from work. Will definately use again.
clean, tidy, no work done which didn't need doing.
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.

Very happy with service, competitive price. Slight issue over reservation make sure you check the date tallys if booking via email. Would use again.
Just got the right place to go
Amazing company. Quick, efficient and friendly. Would 100% recommend using either for a quick fix or regular maintenance. I will definitely be using A & J Lawrence again.
Messed up first booking but was fine on the second. Good price. Accurate pricing.
Really great loved the job they done
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
Absolutely great service. Was really happy with the price and the guys did the work really efficiently. Would definitely recommend and use again!

Excellent service finished the job very quickly and good communication also they were very friendly would 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.
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.
