"Staff very helpful will definitely use again"
Excellent quality work
"Had a couple of services done now with Delta One, and Andrew is always so helpful. The work is fairly priced and they even pick up and drop off the car too. Have no qualms in continuing to use them in the future."
"The car got collected and brought back at the requested times. Communication before and through out was brilliant. I wasn’t at the garage so unable to comment on the quality of the workmanship. The car failed it’s MOT because the headlights were dipped too low. It’s never failed on that before but apparently this can happen, to both headlights at the same time. They fixed it for 20 quid so my car could pass MOT. Apparently certain franchise garages do it for free, but that would mean I have to go back to get it retested. Unfortunately I didn’t have time as the car was due to be returned in 45 minutes, so I paid up."

They were, told me the hourly rate for labour and directed me onto their website for a rough idea of the costs. Called me to inform me of the price and broke down all the costs for me. Work was done very quickly considering everything that needed doing. Very impressed and will be a repeat customer."
"Kept us informed throughout of any repairs needed."
The brakes on your car utilise fluid pressure.
When the brake pedal is depressed, it activates a plunger in the master cylinder,
which pressurises the brake fluid in the pipes and hoses causing the brake components to move.
Brake repairs are one of the most common reasons to visit a garage; all cars need their brake discs and pads replaced at regular intervals. Some of the warning signs for brake failure are squealing or grinding noises when depressing the brakes, or the brake feeling 'spongy' when the pedals is pressed. And of course if you need to brake increasingly hard to effectively slow or stop your car, then you could well be looking at brake replacement.
There are two main types of brake systems: disc brakes and drum brakes.
Disc brake systems are comprised of two pads per wheel, which clamp down on the brake disc when the brake pedal is depressed. When the fluid becomes pressurised, it sends a plunger in the calliper forward, forcing the brake pads on either side of the brake disc to squeeze it, which results in the slowing and stopping of the car.
Drum brakes operate in the same way as disc brakes, but with a different design. They both use friction to slow and stop the car, but drum brakes use shoes, instead of pads. The shoes are inside the steel brake drum itself, which spins with the wheel. When brake pressure is applied, a component called the wheel cylinder expands, forcing the brake shoes apart and towards the inside edge of the drum. Drum brakes are usually found on older vehicles, or just on the rear brake system.
