Van Drivers check your brakes

If you are a van driver, then make sure that you have your brakes checked at regular intervals. Van brakes can wear down much faster, and are put under much more road stress than say, the regular family car. I am not accusing van owners of neglect, but they are often pushed to the limit by their delivery schedules. I presume that the large fleets of vans, such as parcel companies, have some sort of night service scheme. Any brake problems can then would be corrected through the night, before it was loaded.
Here at Pellon Autocentre, in Halifax UK, we try to give our van driving customers a quick turn round. The only problem is that Van Brakes Require Regular Attention.

Van Drivers check your brakes at regular intervals

As a result when service times have been stretched. Then it usually means that the brakes will be in a bad way.Of course when the brakes are finally examined.
Worn brake pads lead to worn out brake discs. Hence, if they are left too long without any brake examination. Therefore, worn brake discs can then lead to seized up brake calipers. Finally, causing worn out and leaking brake cylinders. Worn out brake cylinders then lead to contaminated brake shoes . Leading to less efficient braking on your precious van.
Van drivers and car drivers should be fully aware . Thus, having dangerous and un-safe brakes. So the message is have them checked , Of course, at regular intervals.

Vans are often filled to their capacity with goods to deliver. Therefore, the brakes are used much more and faster than the average cars brakes. Worn brake pads lead to worn out brake discs. As a result you must have heard the terrible grinding noise. Hence, that comes from metal to metal. Of course, if they are left too long without any brake examination.

I always thought that the ABS system on vans and cars, was very complicated to understand. Consequently, your van may go into a skid.
As a result, the van steering control is lost. So then van continues in a straight line. Of course, the skid is also picked up by the ABS control sensor. Sending electric pulses  to  the brakes. Thus, this pulsing results in the driver being able to control the car. Hence, out of the skid.
Most vans and cars are equipped with a ABS control on each wheel. Including, an ABS anti-lock control module and an electronic control unit.

In my opinion many of our van drivers are self employed. Of course, this means that the vans are working hard . Hence, to earn a living. Subsequently, it is well advised to try make a special day for your van servicing. Including, a good brake check.
