Simple Checks to Ensure Your Breaks are Working
It is important to check your breaks often before starting a journey to guarantee they are working properly, as getting halfway through a journey and realising they aren’t working can be extremely dangerous for you and other motorists. As you first start driving, go slowly and press down on the breaks to make sure they are in working order. If they feel different to usual, (i.e. springy, stiff) then you will need your breaks tested.

Why brakes are important parts of your vehicle
Knowing that the brakes are one of the most vital parts to your car, we understand how important it is that they are working perfectly. This is why we offer brake checks and repairs at our garage. The brakes keep you in control of your vehicle so the moment you feel like the brakes aren’t working properly, give us a visit and we will make sure you’ll be driving safely as soon as possible.
The components of your vehicle's braking system include a master cylinder, servo, brake callipers, brake fluid and cylinders, discs, drums, pads and shoes. We can run a brake check on your vehicle to make sure all of these parts are working to the correct standard. If we see anything, we'll let you know what your options are before we repair them - that way you can decide what option is right for you. We won’t start any work until you’ve said you’re happy for us to do so.
Brake Repairs & Fitting
Parkside Garage can replace the brakes on any make or model of vehicle, due to our large stock of brakes, regardless of shape and size. So, if your brakes need replacing, we should be able to do it the same day so you can get back on the road as soon as possible, as we know being without a car can cause many complications throughout your busy day. The examination includes the digital measurement of wear on brake pads, discs and drums against manufacturers' specifications. The aim is to provide the best possible advice to help you restore the condition of your braking system to as near to the manufacturer's original specification as possible.
