"Easy and polite service and very quick"
"Really helpful and friendly. Rearranged appointment for following day after I was unable to get to them on the arranged day or let them know until late afternoon. Quality of work and value is only 3 stars because i can’t honestly rate these when it’s only been 1 day and just over 1 mile of driving since work was done. I never give 5 stars in reviews. 5 is reserved for perfection."
"Very happy with their service"
Good Honest Garage
"Was kept updated every single step of the way in regard to getting my car through its MOT. The fault diagnosis could easily have been something very expensive if in the hands of other dishonest places. Will always recommend - been using Sovereign for three years now and will never hesitate to go back."

"Not happy with bookmygarage as When I called garage they advised me that nothing was shown booked online and this could have cost me a wasted trip had I not called them first."
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? BookMyGarage allows you to search for local garages which offer this facility, and compare their prices, all in one session.
