"First time use of this website. Booked MOT and service on a Thursday via the website to take place on the following Tuesday morning. Didn't get any phone call from the garage until 12pm on the Tuesday (i.e. after the booked appointment). Because this garage hadn't called me on Friday or Saturday I arranged with an another garage instead (but not via the website) and had the work done on the Monday. The website implies that the garage will ring you to confirm the appointment and not to rely just on the website booking system but this garage seemed to be relying on the website as communication to customers. All very confusing. Will just book garage direct next time."
"I was advised that the service was complete and there was extra work that was needed. No work was carried out till an full explanation and pricing of work before anything was done. There was no bullying into the work being done like at some other garages you find. Very friendly manager who QC'ed the extra work before being rung to be told it was completed."
"Staff very helpful, work clearly done in a timely and competent manner"
"I booked at short notice after another provider falling through and was contacted almost immediately to organise a time first thing the next day. Left my car with the guys and was all sorted swiftly and with no fuss. Came highly recommended, evidently for good reason. No issues and will definitely use again."
"From reception to collecting the car a pain free experience of real quality, no repairs necessary hence 1 score"
"When I arrived, the garage didn’t have a record of my booking but instead of turning me away the colleague made some calls and managed to fit me in. Very professional."
"Great customer service and very friendly staff. They informed me of a puncture in one of my tyres and offered to repair it for me. Would definitely return !! :)"
"They fit me in at late notice and were very friendly and professional. He was done in the time he said he would be and it was all round a really great experience. A little hard to find so maybe the addition of a sign in the car park would be a good idea."
"Brilliant staff, very friendly and honest. been going there for couple of years now"
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.
Located around the shores of the River Avon and the Severn Estuary, Bristol is a culturally diverse, socially abuzz, alternative and independent city. Small wonder that in 2014 The Times named it the best city in the UK to live. It’s also one of the sunniest.
Bristol is famous for Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, which is well worth a visit if you don’t happen to drive across it on your way into the city. There is a small toll on this Grade I listed structure which forms part of the B3129. But if you suffer from vertigo don’t look down, the deep drop to the River Avon and Gorge is spectacular and changes with the tide.
