"First time using Book my Garage for Barnside Motors. Have been going to Barnside for about 5 years for tyre fitting, MOT and service. Always happy with the service they provide. Small point but they didn't complete and stamp the service book - probably because I wasn't present to remind them."
Quick and great service
"Quick and was kept informed of issues. Good collection and drop off service as well. Car came back nice and clean too"
"It was the first time that I had to pass an mot to my car in England , so I was a bit confused with all the offers that you can find on Internet... I was about to go for stopservicing.... But when I had a look to their reviews I felt a bit suspicious about the garages.... I was wondering if they will try to ask me to do unnecessary works !!! But with barnside motors that wasn't the case before to go there I was expecting to fail on the mot because I knew that I had issues with my suspension and brakes.... And that's exactly what they said so I didn't had any surprise and they were honest also as they told me that my brakes issue won't compromise my mot but they suggest me to fix it. At the end I just did the work on the suspension and I passed my mot ... I didn't do the work on the brakes for financial reasons but as soon as.... I will come back to them I'm very happy about the service and the work done and I will surely do all my coming servicing there"
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 Maidenhead. 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.
