A brake service involves a detailed inspection of the complete braking system. This requires an expert assessment of every aspect, from the physical components through to the brake fluid that’s an essential component for fully-functioning brakes. Many different parts make up the system, including brake discs (and drums, in certain cars), brake pads, brake calipers, brake fluid, the brake pedal, and the hand brake. A brake service will determine the level of wear throughout the complete braking unit and replace and/or repair any necessary elements.
A correctly functioning braking system is essential for safe motoring. Brakes are subjected to a high level of use and this causes the components to wear and degrade. If this wear is allowed to surpass that of the manufacturer’s recommendations it means the system will be unable to work as it should. This leads to reduced stopping capacity or, in the worst-case scenario, a complete failure of the braking system.
There are many reasons why brakes might wear faster than expected. These include a lot of urban stop-and-go driving, excessive hill and sharp turn driving, and poor driving habits—such as riding the brakes or heavy braking. Regular brake services will ensure that the system continues to work at its optimal level.
When seeking a provider of quality car maintenance, the gold standard is to find a good local provider. Building up a relationship leads to peace of mind that the expected high level of work is carried out and you can always trust any advice that’s provided. When it comes to brake repairs or time-critical brake servicing, utilizing a reliable, high-quality service within your neighborhood negates the need for unnecessary mileage before the work is carried out. In addition, should a situation occur whereby it’s unadvisable to continue driving, help is only a phone call away, allowing you to benefit from a speedy response. This might mean an on-the-spot repair or having transport arranged by the garage where the problem can be quickly and safely rectified.
