Great service friendly
"Couldn't be happier with the service everything explained and best course of action it no pressure to have any of it done. All old parts kept to show what was changed and why. Would highly recommend to anyone who needs work carried out."
"Helpful staff, great value for money and great workmanship."
"They picked my car up from my house, completed a service and mot (which it passed) before dropping it back off at my house a few later! Exceptionally convenient, and for £118 for a 320d service and MOT, exceptionally good value for money too!"
"I am very happy for the quality of service received. I was able to get appointment for the same day and my vehicle was back on the road in the evening of the same day. I will definitely recommend them to other drivers."
"generally OK. They were unable to contact me to discuss repairs, although of course when they tried ringing my mobile when I was there, it did work OK. They provided a quote for repairs, at my request."
"Prompt service and excellent standard of workmanship. First time that we have used Bath Road Vehicle Services and very pleased that we have a such a good independent garage local to us."
"Very friendly and efficient"
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.
How can you save money (and the environment) while you drive?
As every garage owner will tell you, there are some tried and tested ways to cut down on your petrol costs (and consumption) while you’re out and about in Tower Hamlets or beyond. One is to shut your windows. If you can hear that wind noise in your car it’s costing you more to drive. This is because the car becomes less aerodynamic and has to work harder to motor along. Removing a roof rack will improve your fuel efficiency for the same reason. Another useful tip is to combine short trips into one; each time you drive after your car has been parked for a while the engine will be cold and need to use a lot more fuel for the first 5 miles or so. If you do one trip from school drop-off to supermarket to office you’ll use far less fuel than if you do all those trips individually.
