Car brakes are one of the most important parts of the vehicle, and it is necessary to get them regularly serviced to ensure the safety of you, and any passengers in your car.

We are more than happy to inspect and service your brakes, and if they are in need of any replacement pieces, we can complete this too.

Brake replacement process
If we find that there is anything wrong with any of the parts of your brake, we are more than equipped to handle these replacements on site. This saves you time trying to find the correct pieces and, the hassle of installing them elsewhere. We are equipped to deal with all of the different brake parts, and diagnose the specific issues that you might be having.
Cars all have a brake disc, which is a type of brake that involves calipers squeezing brake pads onto a disc to create friction and slow the disc down. If you don’t get your brakes serviced regularly and your brake pads replaced when they wear out, they can begin to touch the sides of the disc brakes every time you put the brakes on, creating damage to the discs as well.
It is important to get your brakes checked whenever you think there is an issue, because often, if left alone, the issue will create more damage and spread to more parts of the car.
What are brake pads & how they work?
Brake pads are small pads that push down on the wheel when your car is in motion, causing the car to slow down, and stop. Because the brake pads clamp down on a moving wheel, this causes friction that wears down the brake pads. In general, you should replace your brake pads every 50,000 miles.
If they start to squeak each time you put the brakes on, you should probably get them checked out before that. When we inspect your brake pads, we check to see whether they are at least 3mm or thicker. If not, we suggest that you get them replaced.
The brake pad is not the only part of your brake that needs to be regularly checked and serviced. The brake caliper is the mechanism that squeezes the brakes onto the wheel, causing the friction that slows the car down. Often, leaking brake fluid is a sign that there is something wrong with your brake caliper, and it needs to be checked out.
It is always better to get your brakes checked regularly
It is cheaper, in the long run, to get your brakes regularly serviced, and parts replaced when they need to be. If you don’t do this as frequently as you should, your brakes will further deteriorate, not only making your car unsafe to drive in some circumstances, but also damaging more parts, resulting in expensive repairs. Brake pad replacement cost will also depend on the make and model of your car.
We only ever use the correct model of brake pads for your car, but as a result these will differ in price.
