"The staff were professional and organised, my car was done in no time at all"
Great efficient service
"Very professional & friendly service"
"Great service and great owners"
"I paid over £100 less than my dealer quoted. The work was still carried out by a main dealership rather than a back street garage. Car was collected and returned by a very nice man. I'd recommend Secret Service as long as you're prepared to not know which garage your car is going to until after you have booked it."

"Everything fine but in reception writin on paperwork wrong milage"
"I’ve taken my car here a couple of times and they’ve been amazing each time. When other garages struggled to find a part for my car they didn’t contact us and wouldn’t answer our calls, but Dellers still helped and found another solution. They also exceeded my expectations with my service, which was actually cheaper than the initial quote. They’re now my go-to and I highly recommend them."
"Great service from the team, they collected my car from RWB and dropped it off there also. Service over the phone was really friendly and they explained all findings over the phone clearly."
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.
