Best garage EVER
"I have been going to this garage for a few years now, and even though I have moved to the other side of the city, I wouldn’t go anywhere else, after being ripped off by several garages before. All the staff are very friendly, and Stuart in reception keeps you up to date throughout the day. They also don’t start any repairs until they have consulted you and given you a price, which is always very reasonable, and I’ve never had to return to have a repair, repaired again, which has happened previously too. I honestly cannot recommend this garage highly enough"
"Good, fast and very well priced no complaints here!"
MOT Carried out
"Another perfect service from Kilgannon garage, allways use this place now, handy location and good prices."
"Was easy to book in online, Gary called from the garage to confirm my booking and drop off time, quick to check car in and confirm pick up time, car was ready as expected and all work taken confirmed / explained to me"
Friendly and helpful
"Full Service done. The cost, Labour and workmanship have been excellent. However the garage can better manage its time as I was given a time appointment on the day of the service rather than some time before."
"kept informed of repairs and costs and how long it would take."
"Very happy with the work done. Staff were very friendly and helpful"
Great Service but...
"I had a full service done. I was emailed an appointment time on the day which which was inconvenient. Woman told me to bring it in for the appointment time and she would make sure I was seen to whilst I wait however no woman was seen at the desk (appears to be offsite call centre I believe). Dropped the car off and sat around for a while, guy told me to come back for closing time which was 4 hours away. The price of the service and the quality (so far) have been excellent however they need to better manage their appointment times and advise an exact time upon booking and also advise collection times so people know whether to wait around or plan a time filler. I will be back though due to prices and quality of the workmanship."
"Usual excellent local service"
"Very happy with the service I received this time round as with every other time ive been. Always use them for my services and MOTs. Dropped car off before i went to work and by mid morning i had a text to say car was ready to collect. Went down after work and car was ready, pleasent staff, paid by card and went off on my jolly way!! For a woman in my 30s i have been in garages where they try and add things on or try and get more money from you. These guys though are completely honest and genuine and always made to feel completely comfortable. Thanks for a fab experience. Car feels great."
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.
Driving in Scotland
Motorists in Scotland come up against a range of challenges. The tourism and festival hub of Edinburgh experiences the extremes of urban congestion; but drive out into the Highlands and you may find yourself squaring up against one of the herds of long-horned Highland cattle that roam freely in some areas. BookMyGarage can compare garages the length and breadth of Scotland, whether you’re negotiating Glasgow City Centre or gazing at the expanse of Loch Ness.
