It goes without saying that, brakes are an essential component when it comes to safe driving. 

We have highly trained technicians that will carry out a  FREE no obligation brake inspection along with a quotation if we find your vehicle does require new brake discs and/or pads.

If you decide to have any of your braking system repaired or replaced at one of our branches you can be assured that we only use parts of the highest quality and they will only be fitted by experienced technicians.

 

Did you know?

Front brakes normally wear out before rear brakes because they handle a higher percentage of the braking load.

Brake pads should be replaced if the pad has worn down to a thickness of 3mm.

Brake disc thickness should be measured and replaced if they measure at or below the manufacturers safe minimum thickness specification.

When new parts are fitted, it's vital to drive gently and carefully until they 'bed in' which takes approximately 200miles.

Excessive braking action on new parts will potentially damage them leading to loss of braking efficiency and performance.
