Safe speed control depends on two components - your brakes and your tyres. Symptoms to watch out for include under or over steering, pulling or vibration in the steering column, excessive movement in the pedal and whistling, rattling or grinding noises.
The cost of looking after them is less than the cost of not looking after them, so regular tyre and brake inspection is essential. Catching issues early can also prevent premature wear, reducing your long-term motoring costs. A preliminary brake inspection is free of charge, so never ignore symptoms that could be due to a problem with your brakes.
A thorough brake inspection should be part of your annual servicing routine. Many motorists choose one of our service packages immediately before their annual MOT. A thorough brake inspection usually requires the wheels to be removed so it is also an ideal opportunity to inspect your tyres, wheel bearings and couplings at the same time. You can choose a date and time for your free check, full brake inspection or a service package using our online contact form.
