Getting your brakes tested in Plymouth is more important than ever with the cold weather that Plymouth faces every year. Finding a garage you trust in Plymouth can be a difficult task as it can be hard to find mechanics who have your best interests at heart.

The winter period can cause many hazards on the road, especially when it’s winter. This is why Whites Autocentre recommend that you get your brakes tested in Plymouth to try and prevent any potential dangers for yourself and whoever’s in the car. Whites Autocentre in Plymouth have highly experienced mechanics who will check over your brakes. Getting your brakes checked in Plymouth is important due to the high volume of people living in Plymouth, this means there’s more traffic and more likely you’ll need to stop more often.

An inspection at Whites Autocentre will ensure your brake system is operating optimally and prevent big trouble later. Did you know that there are two types of brakes? A disc and drum. Disc brakes have a rotor that’s attached to the axle. Calipers straddle the rotor, similar to the way brakes on a bicycle work. Drum brakes in cars are more common on back wheels. Both types have pads or shoes that press against the brakes and slow the vehicle down. This ids what Whites Autocentre test when under going a brake inspection in Plymouth. Even though brake pads and shoes are made out of very tough material to withstand heat and repeated force from stopping all the, they will wear down over time, which is why we need to check that they’re in good enough condition for you. Testing brakes in Plymouth are our main priority as we want to ensure that all drivers are driving in safe cars.

If you don’t get your bakes checked in Plymouth regularly then, it can cause damage when your cars calipers grind grooves into the rotor. This means that the rotor must either be resurfaced or replaced, if this is the case then we will let you know straight away before replacing them. No work gets done without your full consent. If you don’t get your brake pads replaced in Plymouth then it can be extremely dangerous. Your vehicle won’t be able to stop as quickly, and it can be expensive to repair.

One thing to note about brakes in Plymouth is that they come in three different grades. Good, better, and best. It’s no surprise that the higher grades cost more, but the performance of the brake is better. Ultimately, you really do get what you pay for. If you decide to go with a lower grade than that’s fine, but you should never go lower than your manufacturers recommendations.
