Great service. Picked up on a few other things that need sorting out. Thanks.
Excellent service. Very friendly and efficient, with a fast turnaround. Would highly recommend to anyone.
Very easy to get information back quickly about the initial quote, guarantee on the work and progress as the job was being done. My daughters Fiat 500 needed a new gearbox and Anees was a similar price to others I had quote but committed to do the work within the timescales I wanted. When i picked the car up, he took me through the repairs and showed me all the parts taken off so I knew all the work was done as specified. I would definitely recommend if you need anything doing on your car.
good service done it the day i wanted , no problems
Good quickly job. Highly recommended to anyone who need car repairs. Ralph
Had to have bodywork repair & indicator light replaced. Sam was very helpful and on collecting my car 3days after, I was very impressed., not only with the repair but my car was polished & hoovered inside as well as washed outside, tyres were also cleaned & polushed. They even put a car fresh on my rear view mirror. They weren't the cheapest quote as the cheapest was a distance away & had no reviews re. bodywork whereas Kingston Motors were near to me & had 2 positive reviews re. bodywork. Was worth paying the difference of £30. I would use them again. You just need to call them, they don't have a Receptionist so I wouldn't depend on them getting in touch.... Not a problem, after all they're busy.
Fast response and work carried out to a good standard. Initial issue was found to be wrong and full work completed. Reasonably priced in comparison to others looked at. Job well done.
I was very pleased with this garage and would certainly recommend and use them again. I found them to be honest and competitively priced. They were also polite, friendly and not in the least pushy. Two small problems occurred and not only were these resolved extremely promptly but l also received some money off my bill. I left them thinking l would trust them completely.
We arrived at 08.30 with our Ford c-max for a new clutch we were told it would be ready for 5pm very reasonable price as per quote and a good job done car ready on time will use this garage again thanks guys
Excellent garage. I will recommend them for their good service, communication, and time management. Well done MNM
Great personal service. Definitely use again
Fast service, genuinely honest mechanic Only does the job you ask for Not hidden charges, charged what I was quoted
Really good service
Great work and communication
Once booked in, I dropped of my car just after 9am, and got a call at 11.30am to advise it was all done and ready for collection. It was a relatively simple job, but the main dealer did not want to do it as the model/car was 'too new' for their technicians (Ford Mustang 2015), but smallbills garage took on the job for a reasonable price and I am more than happy with the end result. The new lamps look great and there is nothing to suggest an after market fit. Thanks for a great job at a reasonable price.
Perfect results on the paintwork, easy doing business, and a great price. Highly recommended
Own an e46 with a few issues and the guys did what I asked for quickly and perfectly. Will be using them again. Thanks a lot
Price quoted included VAT, however actual price added this on according to customer.
Good efficient and friendly service. A good job and I will use again and highly recommend.
Great communication, superb service!!! Came on Sunday, fixed the car. Makes us very happy!!! Would recommend to everyone and definitely will use the service again !!!
He was on time. Finished the work quickly. Helpful to fix other issues I had. I recommend him and will use his services in future.
Came to my home and replaced the whole light and completed the job in less then 15 min. Efficient and good service. Will definitely use this garage again. So much easier then taking your car to the garage.
Great service, really pleased. Mark had no issues with me hovering and asking questions, nice and easy to talk to and explained things that i didnt know about. Also was the best price and was kind enough to sort out a brake light too. Definitely recommend and will definitely use again.
Very efficient and friendly service
Very good customer service
Brilliant service provided. Air con broke down on a Saturday afternoon. They were happy for me to come down just before 4pm and had me out within an hour. Perfect!
Good customer service and communication during the MOT process. Recommended a couple of additional items based on the cars service history which led to the cost increase. Rung for authorisation prior to any additional work and would highly recommend.
These guys were great. i'll definitely be using them again. so easy, they picked up my car and dropped it back at the end of the day.
Louis was a great guy and knowledgeable and polite. Unfortunately car needed more work than expected therefore cancelled the job and he did not charge anything for call out. I was only charged for the brake fluid. Thank you
Perfect example of a high-quality neighbourhood garage. Efficient, friendly, value for money service delivered as promised. I'll definitely return to Anees for future work.
Very easy to get in contact with and they were flexible with making an appointment. I had to cancel on the day I was meant to bring it in and they were very accommodating and said I could bring it in the next day instead. When I got there they were polite and professional, and got the work done straight away. I had new front brake pads and discs fitted within 45 minutes, and at an excellent price. Would highly recommend, and I will definitely go back to them if I needed something fixed.

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.
