A1 happy to reccommend
"Helpful and timely, honest and straightforward service basically no nonsense and no silly buggers"
Great customer service
"Very happy with the service. The staff was really helpful. I have booked there because I have seen the previous review. no regrer. I recommend."
"Quick turn around for the MOT and time slot was too my convenient."
Couldn't be Better
"Staff has been very courteous and appear to be very honest ( Bearing in mind the reputation of dishonesty some Garages have) even though I cannot check the quality of work."
"Car feels brand new"
Great Service and Value
"I have used MC Autos a few times now after finding out that my latest Peugeot dealership were charging through the roof. I have continued to use them ever since."
"I decided to choose this company due to the good reviews but it seemed I had bad luck with them or they were not in the mood to service my car. Customer service needs much improvement, the mechanic gave me several quotations to write down, first of all he was giving me quotes with such speed that I was unable to write everything in one go and when I kindly asked him to repeat, he sounded quite annoyed and repeated with a rude tone. This has given me a bad impression so this is my first and last time I'll be using sovereign group and i won't recommend it to anyone either."
"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."
"Happy with the work."
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?
