Great, highly recommend
"Friendly staff providing confidence in the calibre of the work undertaken. While I trust they carried out the work that was agreed, I did find a slight error to suggest they may have missed checking the tyre pressures as part of the full service. Upon returning to the garage, they more than remedied the issue and the car is running perfectly as expected. Would definitely recommend their services and I intend to continue returning as a customer in the future."
"car broke down...hillclimb immediately attended to it once dropped off by recovery. identified issue, part ordered, fitted and back on the road in no time. …..and at a pleasantly suprising price!"
"Very happy, they did a good job"
"My car had a full service and the garage were communicative from start to finish. I had a printout of everything that was checked, and what was done. I liked the video of the checks they do under the car, it’s reassuring to see that my car is in good shape. Will definitely use Hillclimb again."
"I was kept well informed throughout the MOT and Service. A wrong service part had been sent and they advised I could come back and have the part (air filter) fitted the next day. Friendly staff. Definitely recommend."

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?
We all have different needs, and choosing a garage is no different. For some of us, it’s the quality of the overall service which matters most; not just the work that’s done under the bonnet, but the human interaction that comes with it. BookMyGarage allows you to compare High Wycombe garages on everything from their waiting room refreshments or whether having your toddler in tow is going to be a problem, to how clearly the staff can explain the work your car requires.
