Entering the FRICTION ZONE — Aging vehicle parc ripe for car brakes sales
“Where before when a vehicle reached 10 years or 11 years, consumers were thinking of selling it, now they’re thinking of, ‘How can I keep my car going?
This is a very in depth articles about car brakes
Car brakes are very often taken for granted, in other words car owners will just pull into your garage and leave their car, because there is a banging or rattling noise coming from the front of the car.
This is usually a good indication that the car brakes have failed,or are failing, but brake jobs do follow a pattern.
The spring time is usually the time for our customers car brakes to start going wrong and needing repairing. In my opinion i think that it is because that drivers use their car brakes
much more in the winter months and therefore the brake pads and discs .
Drivers almost always wait until the last minute to have them repaired and consequently cause more damage to the brakes.
For example a simple job like a set of brake pads replacing may turn out to be more complicated and end up the car needing new discs, or a seized up brake caliper.
This will result in a larger garage invoice for the customer. The secret is to get a free brake check at your local garage. most garages here in the UK will give a car a free brake check and give the customer a quote for the required work. We are members of the Unipart Car Care Centres who also offer a nationwide guarantee throughout the UK and a free brake check on all makes and models of cars.
All this culminates as a good time of year for doing brake work, especially the many older cars that our customers are now hanging on to longer and having them repaired instead of replaced.
