You don't need us to tell you that brakes are a vital part of your vehicle. As they age, signs of wear and tear can start to show, impeding your safety and the safety of others. In fact, brakes are the most commonly named vehicle defect in serious UK road accidents, according to the Department of Transport.
Rain, heat and physical changes to the separate components in your braking system can impede your braking speed and accuracy, so it's important to have it checked regularly. That's where we come in. With over 40 years of experience, we like to think that we know a little about vehicle maintenance. We understand that checking brake health is an essential part of any vehicle's management plan. That's why we offer free brake checks to all our customers to identify brake issues at an early stage before they become a problem.
Signs that your brakes may be in need of repair
- The brake pedal sinks when you apply pressure
- You hear unusual noises when braking
- You feel vibration when braking
- Your brakes feel hard or spongy when applying pressure
- There is additional slack in the handbrake or difficulty removing the handbrake
- Your vehicle pulls to one side when braking
- The brake warning light is illuminated
Even if you aren't currently experiencing these problems, we recommend that you get your brakes regularly checked. All our brake checks are carried out by fully trained technicians, so you know that your vehicle is in safe hands. Every check is 100% free and we'll provide a no-obligation quote for any repairs needed. We only use high-quality parts that we would be happy to use in our own vehicles. We'll also return any replaced parts to you or dispose of them in an environmentally friendly manner.
