"Went here after the garage we had used for many years closed. Found on-line. Went for routine service and MOT on 10 year old Ford Focus. Work done on time and price as agreed. Polite and professional."
"Great to finally find a decent garage"
"Just one thing I have to say. When you do the booking online, you have the option to tick if you need Free drop from service to home and back. I did tick only the first one but they couldn't do it for the same reason that you find it everywhere. "Short of staff" In rest...all amazing"
"Happy with the service"
Good and Friendly Service
"When it came to the service and MOT in general, it was fine. They found a few problems as you would expect. The car makes a horrible noise when it starts which you would expect them to have a look at or inform you additional investigation is required. I informed them of an issue with the acceleration when touching the clutch. They said they don't know what it could be and would have to look into it more. They never asked thay can look deeper at X cost. This is a single person findings outside the usual services and not the overall service which was very good."

"Great service and fair price"
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.
What do you need from your garage?
You may live within walking distance of a garage which offers most of the services you need. However, by sticking with the nearest garage in Croydon you could be missing out on a better deal. What if a garage with a collection / drop off service or courtesy car could do the same job at a good price, without the inconvenience of losing your car for the duration of the repair?
