When was your last brake check-up? Get it now for FREE.


Your vehicle’s brake system is primarily composed of disc brakes in front and either disc or drum brakes in the rear. Stepping on the brake pedal pushes against a plunger in the master cylinder which in turn forces brake fluid through a series of tubes and hoses to the braking unit at each wheel.

Brake fluid (or any fluid for that matter) can’t be compressed, so it can be directed through the hoses to arrive with the exact same motion and pressure that it started with. This is mostly a secure system but time and use dictate that parts will have to be renewed and replaced so get a brake check-up now for FREE.

This is why we don’t just give you a cost quote for a brake job over the phone or online. When you bring your car, SUV or 4X4 in we perform our systematic brake evaluation to determine if repairs are required if so exactly which brake repairs are necessary. We provide you with an estimate before starting any work, so you’re in control of your repair cost and know how much you are committed to spending.
