I used fixter for the first time today it is a fantastic service my car was picked up on time and deliverd back to me well before the time slot I was very pleased with the service they provided for me and it was no hassle for me to go out and find a garage for my M O T I sat in my house did things ...
"I really can't rate this service high enough. Dan Johnson picked my car up at around 8.30am - he was pleasant and polite. Off it went to the garage, I got a text 20 minutes later to say it had arrived and around an hour later another text to say it was on it's way back - with a nice shiny ""Pass"...
Wow picked car up for mot half hour early and back 2 hours after excellent service and exceptionally good priced so pleased I accidently found this company and daniel the young man is courteous and polite thank you will be telling all my friends
A good company to work with, the only negative is invoice has to be done in a particular way! But they are rolling out automatic invoicing,So the negative feedback will become positive feedback.Good work guys.
Easy to book a MOT. Quick and efficient - great to have the car picked up and dropped off. Payment easily sorted online. Will recommend! Thanks
Good service and very good value!

The brake disc is a metal plate mounted on the wheel hub that is clamped between 2 rear brake pads when braking is applied; this causes friction and slows the vehicle down.
As a rough guide, your** brake discs** should last between 50k and 70k miles, but there are many variables that could affect this, including driver behaviour, the weight you carry and the speed you travel.
Nearly 20% of MOT failures are caused by faulty brakes. Incorrect brake function, damaged or excessively worn discs or pads are considered unsafe for your vehicle performance and will cause your car to fail its MOT.
Rear brake discs wear out over time from continual use. The friction applied by the brake pads, and the intense heat generated, will eventually deform the disc, causing it to become thinner and less effective when performing its job.
Extended use can also cause rear brake discs to crack, rendering them ineffective. Scars and rust on the disc can be caused by debris thrown from the road and poor weather conditions; this is also effective in reducing the operation of your brake discs.
Loud screeching or grinding noises from your brakes is an indication that there is a problem with either your brake discs or pads.
If only one brake is working correctly, it can cause your car to pull in the direction of the functioning brake.
Your brake pads or discs could be warped if the pedal vibrates when you press down on it.
Look through the wheel for a visual check—if the disc’s surface isn’t smooth, or it displays cracks, grooves, spots or a blue colourisation, then the disc is quite likely damaged.
If any of your dashboard warning lights are illuminated, the sensor that detects problems or worn out parts and components has identified an issue and activated the system.
