"Collected car from my home and delivered it back. Service carried out on time and let me know when it was on way back."
"I was happy thanks."
"Initially booked full service, with car to be collected and returned. The day came and the car wasn’t collected. Called to enquire and was told there must have been an issue with the book in and that collection was unavailable. The lady resolved this by collecting my car personally and returning it the following day (going above and beyond - really appreciate that). She also mentioned that my car would be fine having a part service, as opposed to the full service, which was a cheaper option. Was kept well informed, with the video health check sent through. Very pleased with the service and will use again in future."

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.
The capital of Wales since only 1955, Cardiff has emerged in recent decades as a lively, stylish, self-assured and cosmopolitan city offering culture, history and nightlife as well as the beauty and tranquillity of nearby coastal and rural areas.
