"I took my car for my annual car service. The check was done quickly and they rang me to inform me of work that needed doing for the near future. They kept to the rockets that had been quoted online which was good. The only thing is my air con was regassed and then went on to smell bad as my filter needed changing. I was surprised no one picked this up as I smelt the smell when I picked up my car but thought it was due to something else until I used my air con 2 days later. They quickly sorted my filter when I came back later that week but it potentially could’ve been sorted in one go. Otherwise great service all round."
Efficient and nice
"Was no need for repairs other than bulb. Was very quick and polite when booking."
"Served quickly and was consulted at every stage"
"Honest and helpful I will use them again"
"Booked one day for work to be done the next; situation changed so needed car by 3 pm; not a problem at all. A fault I didn't mention was fixed. MoT was done with sensible advisories and no "You have to have this done to pass MoT". Car was collected and delivered promptly and with great courtesy. Totally unexpectedly, car was cleaned inside and out. I cannot check the internal work and it is too early to know if everything is right but I felt happy about the work in exactly the way I felt UNhappy with a different garage the year before."

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?
This might sound like a question with an obvious answer: you need a garage that can service or repair your car quickly and at a good price. But think again and you may realise there are other factors that affect your choice of garage in London. If you need to bring your son or daughter with you when you take your car in, are there toys in the waiting room? If you’re dropping the car off between school and work, can you pick up a cup of coffee while you’re there? Might the garage even collect your car and drop it back at your house after the work is done? You can find answers to all these questions on BookMyGarage.
