Very helpful, quick and price was what was quoted!
quick response and availability to change my rear brake pads. however the price did not include sensors which my car actually needs. so i had to provide them myself. i was told it would take an hour, but ended up taking over 4 hours to do due to a sticking piston in the caliper. however they did not charge any extra so was happy over all
Car was repaired the day I dropped it off! Nice guys and decent price. Would recommend!
I asked to open the bonnet, that's what they've done. I also asked to replace the release cable, they've done that too after agreeing on some reasonable extra cost. Very pleased I've used their service.
Brilliant service and price was what was quoted. Finished to a high standard. They took the car in the same day and completed the works within 2 days.
Great Service, Engineer attending my location and sorted the issue as discussed very happy.
Problem was LOCATED
Highly recommended. This guy is good!!!!
Highly professional, arrived within an hour and had the car running beautifully the same day. Explained everything in full detail, showed me all parts old and new, couldn't be grateful enough. Thank you Adam, you went above and beyond, I will definitely be in touch in the future should we need it.
An outstanding service from this garage. We were unable to go to them so they offered us a mobile service. Nathan was extremely professional, friendly and honest. The price ended up being cheaper than quoted as Nathan advised us that it was less of a job. We have recommended him to friends and family and we will only ever use this garage in future. Fantastic service all round!
I should just like to say how pleased I was with the work carried out on my LandRover Freelander on Friday 18/05/2018. My car wouldn't start so contacted your firm, when the mechanic arrived he discovered that I needed a new starter motor. When I explained that I was booked on a ferry to the Isle of Wight on Saturday morning, the next day, and that I was desperate to have the work done. The mechanic said he would drive to Canterbury and collect the part, drive back and fit it so that I was on the road in time for my holiday. I was so pleased with the mechanic's work ethic and willingness to help me out. Very well done him. Thank you so much. I shall recommend your firm to family and friends and will definitely use your services in the future. Thank you so much. Regards, Bill Packman.

Paul was very professional very friendly and very helpful would definitely go back if needed for anything else 5 * from methanks guys
Yeah I would recommend, nice, easy & quick.
Paul was excellent. I'm always a bit wary with new garages, but was put at ease immediately and felt that he was going to do a good job which was to change the cambelt and replace the starter motor. and at last minute, put in a brand new battery due to me not telling an important piece of information, which explains the final price and happily paid for an excellent job and customer service. I would definitely use this garage for all future jobs. Thank you, Paul!

Brilliant. Would recommend to others and would use Adam again for sure.
I used Adam's service one year ago and nothing changed. He did the job very quick at a good price. Very friendly and he knows well what is he doing. I will use his service again and recommend it to everyone. Thank you Adam!

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.
