Requested a service for my car. Garage came straight back to me very promptly on a day and time that suited. Eventually found the unit - it's a big business park. I was told it would take approx 3hrs. 2hrs later I was phoned to say it would be ready by the time I walked back to the garage. All the guys were helpful. Pleased with the service and price.
Very friendly, fast, efficient and cheap. They seemed to have a lot of accolades with regards to clutches (specialist certificates etc.) so would definitely recommend and use again for any clutch trouble!
This garage has good, helpful, professional people. Based on my experience I would duly recommend.
Looked after from the moment I arrived. Car was looked at immediately with a fast prognosis and price. Work was then carried out swiftly and professionally and was complete within 2 hours. Highly recommended.
Would recommend Parkside Garage to anyone! Quick and easy to fit in my service, with quick replies! I got my car in a service and was done within around an hour! I didn't not have my service book and left it at home, so they provided me with their own service book until i got it. I noticed after i back from the service that they had put an incorrect common meaning my millage was more than it was, with a quick call they reprinted everything off and i came back in the next morning, with my actual service book as well which they happily filled out! Will be back in future! Great, friendly people!
Great service received and fantastic price loads cheaper than anywhere else plus he fit me in last minute for a full service and tyre change! I will definitely be returning and have already recommended to friends!! Thank you!!
Very friendly and caring service
Great service all round and a very fair price on new tyres
Friendly professional service from Andy, fitted my car in quickly, done a great job at a great price, excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend, and I will have no hesitation in using them again in the future, very trustworthy.
The garage managed to fit my daughters car in at short notice even though busy and she found them to be very helpful and pleasant - A problem arose with parts for the clutch which was sorted soon as possible and they gave her a car overnight til the job was completed next day. All seems good with the work done.
Brilliant work throughout. Paid the price I was quoted, and the job was started as soon as I arrived. Will definitely be using again, thanks again!
Absolutely first class service from start to finish. All at Parkside were a pleasure to deal with and explained things clearly. Much much better than my local VW dealership. Thanks for the great service.
I had the rear discs and pads replaced for 135 as quoted and then I asked for the front pads replacing which was 60. Very friendly fast and a great service. I will be using this garage again.
Very friendly,good quality garage and fair price.Well 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.

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.
