"Solid no-nonsense MOT. Additionally I was sure my brake pads needed replaced, but that wasn’t the case. The guys took a photo to show me and helped me avoid extra costs. Highly recommend this garage."
"Very good service, thanks, very prompt and very polite."
"Brilliant service. Really great at explaining everything. Did everything efficiently! Would definitely recommend."
Good, honest local garage
"Well run, owner managed local garage. Genuine, honest and friendly service at a reasonable price. Hard to find these days. Much better overall value and customer experience than any main dealer or fast fit place. Much appreciated. Thanks Craig."
A problem free MOT
"I used the online booking system but I had to phone to confirm the car was booked in. I did ask for an AM appointment but the car wasn't ready until 4pm although it passed MOT first time."
"The garage kept in touch regularly to keep me updated of what was being done. Very friendly and professional. Easy to approach and good value for money."
Great Efficient Service
"Absolutely no problems. Done quickly, most definitely back next year"
Fast and reliable service
"I had an MOT and service. The work was done quickly and I was kept informed throughout the day of progress. I suspected before my car went in that the 2 front tyres needed to be replaced. The garage advised that the 2 I thought needed to be replaced were low on tread but still within reasonable limits to pass the MOT but advised that the rear tyres were damaged. They took photos of the damage to the tyres to show me on collection and explained the likely impact had I continued to drive on them. The price quoted for the tyres was very good so I opted to replace them all. Overall the full cost of the service, MOT and 4 tyres was very good and I have already booked our second car booked in for a service and MOT at Steins later this month."
Easy and Fast
"Booked online the night before, turned up the next afternoon, MOT completed and car back to me same afternoon. Very friendly staff."
"After completion of the work car purrs like the day it left the forecourt"
"Good, friendly and efficient service. Should remove some things from their website which they don't offer though e.g. Pick up and drop off."
"I had my service a couple of months ago and went back for my MOT. Great service, and gives straightforward advise and information"
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.
