This is a general check of your car's braking system to make sure there are no obvious issues or concerns. We also use a brake inspection to help pinpoint any issues or concerns you might have with your vehicle's brakes. This would include a visual check of the mechanical braking components, brake fluid level and test, brake hoses and pipes and a test drive to check operation.


This is a comprehensive braking system service. As well as all of the items included on an brake inspection, a brake service includes a brake strip, clean and grease, adjusting the handbrake if required , brake drum removal, cleanup and cylinder check (if applicable) handbrake cable operation check and a brake fluid change. A brake service is particularly helpful if you have a new vehicle and would like peace of mind that your vehicle's brakes are ok.
