Took to long to fix car
Ade was good. Price was reasonable but guess it could have been better. The only problem was with the time commitment. It was not delivered when it was initially promised and I feel they could have given a longer timeframe and delivered quickly than promising a shorter delivery time and taking longer.
Job well done with a very competitive price. Good to have a reliable local garage I could go to!
An amazing service, very thorough and explains very clearly for a very reasonable price.
Did everything that was asked, no problems.
Did an excellent job, Lukasz is very creative as a mechanic and I would happily use him again.
Fantastic! The guys from yourmobilegarage were brilliant! Arrived at a convenient time, completed the job efficiently and I have had no problems in almost a year. Fabulous value and great service- delighted!
Good knowledgeable mechanic. Diagnostic a bit expensive but work that required doing after was up to a good standard and good labour cost along with the sourcing of the parts. Would recommend.
I had parking sensors fitted to my Vauxhall Zafira car. Lucas came on time, was very friendly and professional. His standard of work is very good and he explains clearly what he is doing. He definitely does not cut corners and is very honest and reliable. His finishing is very good and neat and he does look after your car very well. Once the sensors were fitted he double checked everything to make sure it works ok. In conclusion Lucas is very reliable, good value and i would highly recommend people reading this review to go ahead and book him. 10 out of 10! Thanks Abdul

Experienced garage who dealt with a number of separate issues very well, including ordering in specialist parts. Returning to find the car washed and vacuumed was a nice touch. 8 stars rather than 10 purely for the fact that I was informed they would need to keep the car overnight and it was only when I put my foot down that the job was finished on the day. Normally I'd accept that but I had dropped the car off at 7am so clearly had hoped to be first in the queue!
Very good on the whole, the mechanic was able to fix the problem within half an hour. Branko very helpful and honest. Will definitely go again. They are a little pricey compared to the other estimates I received but you are guaranteed a very top service.
They were great, really nice people, very quick, would use again.
Very happy with service, done a decent job, would use again.
Pleased with the work done, would use again.

One of the best - will recommend anytime - I will definitely go there again to get my car serviced and for further work - They completed the work as promised and also done few other minor repair... Very friendly staff members... Thanks You.......
Big appreciation to the folks from G.M.L, all work have been done for the upfront agreed amount. They even fixed a loose heat shield at no coast! Nina was very kind and helpful, the kind of service where people still matter! Shortly said: Great service at Fair prices.
Prompt, outstanding service - Fabio goes above and beyond. With dealership level capabilities he is able to offer a superior diagnostic and repair service of a dealer with the personal touch of a small business. Highly recommended.

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.
