Highly recommend Lee very efficient work and came when he said he would
Nice guy, very good job.

Didn't end up using Lee for the job I requested as I found a freind who did it for free unfortunately I accepted the job which caused a fee of £30 to the mechanic he explained this to me I apologized for the inconvenience he wasn't best pleased but I wasn't aware who can fix my car take a month to refund mechanics if works not carried out point of this review do not accept work unless 100% going to have it done also to the mechanics keep being professional even if your pissed off 10% commission is a small fee for the amount of work the site gets you
Excellent service. Called when on the way, did the work while i was working. Could not fault him. Cheerful and friendly - a credit to the profession.
A new tyre was needed, unable to fix puncture
Great customer service. Very happy.
Had an MOT done on my car it failed, but they provided clear concise billing for what was needed for the MOT to be passed. The price of the MOT was as quoted earlier.
Very good- would recommend
As a time served engineer I normally do my own repairs, in this case I was unable to find the time. Knowing the cost of the parts, and how long it should take, Camerons provided a very reasonable quote, and carried out the work in a few hours. Would have no hesitation in recommending them. Many thanks guys.
Great communication. Will use again. Very reasonable rates. Professional.
Cameron's GT Auto did a fast, efficient job and communicated very well throughout. I'd happily recommend them, and use them again.
Well pleased done in good time
Excellent service and much cheaper than Honda dealer.
Gave me a price before I had the work done, and booked me in urgently. Was able to wait while the work was carried out. Very happy with the whole process.
Friendly and polite staff. Everything was explained fully.
The staff were very polite and offered me a coffee. MOT of my car was very quick. I was pleased with everything. Will use them when service is due.
Good experience. MOT identified some work that needed doing so I had that done at the same time.
Excellent service, would definitely recommend.
Had it done within 24 hours - they called to advise exactly what was happening and kept us posted throughout.
It’s not often I admit to being wrong but there’s a first time for everything. An excellent place to bring your car.
I was very pleased with the whole experience
Really impressed. Nice guy, free loan car, job done when said. Can’t ask for any more.

Excellent job by Stewart and his colleague. They were flexible with times and dates and arrived when expected and had the job done in an hour. They were well priced and fitted good quality discs and pads with minimum of fuss. I would recommend them to anyone and will certainly be using them again. Thanks Momentum Mobile Mechanics.
Excellent service will definitely recommend to others. Made things nice and easy no stress.
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.
