"Very happy,good quality of service , well done"
"It wasn’t bad but it could have been better, they are not very friendly at the garage, The nearside dimlight was not working and one of the wiper was a bit worn off. & he classified these two as major fault in the car, anyhow I ask him how much he would charge me to change the light, & he goes to me “ I have no idea” as I have never change these kind of lights previously, I think they are not very experienced & finally when I went for my re testing, I waited and when he got back, I asked him, has the car passed the MOT? He goes to me I think so, & then he gave me this funny look and said the car “ the car has a bit of mileage on it “ i felt uncomfortable with those people, they are not very good with customer service and all! But the price £35 is excellent, book my garage was very good & very helpful! I will use book my garage again but may be not the same MOT centre."
"I was very happy, in addition to keeping me informed at all times they adapted the undertray as it was not original equipment so didn't fit exactly. I came back here for the interim service because I was so impressed with the MOT and the fact that Bryan was the first person, out of four garages, that was able to find a noise that had been bothering me for several months."
Great efficient service

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.
Located in the Thames Valley to the west of London, Reading in Berkshire is not too well-known as one of Britain’s must-visit towns. However, once you get there, you’ll discover a surprising amount of things to see and do. It is sometimes described as being on London’s commuter belt but the influx of daily traffic outweighs the outflow due to the large number of tech companies and international businesses which have made Reading their home.
