Brake performance is vital for vehicle safety. As all brake components wear and deteriorate over time, it’s essential that you get your brakes checked regularly. We offer free brake safety inspections in all our branches, ensuring you and your passengers remain safe on the road.

So how do you know if you need a brake inspection?
There are a few tell tale signs to look out for:
- Grinding sensation/noise
- Squeaking brakes
- Pulsating or Juddering brakes
- Your vehicle pulls to one side when you’re braking
- Sponginess in the brake pedal
- Simply that your brakes don’t feel as responsive
If you experience any of these signs or simply feel that something “isn’t quite right” then it’s always best to book in for a brake check – even if you just need the peace of mind that everything is OK. Whilst our branches will always try and get a technician to check your brakes as quickly as possible, we do need a ramp to do this as the wheels have to be removed, therefore we would always recommend booking an appointment at your local branch. It’s also worth noting that as the wheels need to be removed, you will need to bring your Locking Wheel Nut Key with you or know where it’s kept in your vehicle.
Getting your brakes checked early, when you first notice a slight difference in your vehicle performance not only ensures maximum safety, it can also save you a more costly repair bill and preserve the health of brake components not yet in need of replacement.
