Want to save money and get great results on your next brake service? Make sure you ask the following 4 questions before you buy.

1. What Is Included In The Brake Service Estimate?
Does the company’s brake service price include the rotors, fluid, adjustments, and so on? If it seems too good to be true, their estimate probably only covers the bare essentials.
In fact, some shops use misleading ads for low-cost brake services intentionally, just to get you in the door. What they fail to mention is that this “special price” is only for a basic brake pad service, usually a simple swap-out. More advanced brake services, like resurfacing or replacing the rotors, cost extra.
For honest, upfront pricing on a complete brake service from ASE-certified specialists, contact your local TIRECRAFT today.
2. What Is The Expected Turnaround Time?
Can they fit you in right away? If not, how soon can they get you in for your brake service, and how long will it take?
If you hear or feel cause for concern, or you’ve passed the 12-month/20,000km mark between check-ups your brake service cannot wait. At the same time, you don’t want to go without a car for long, especially during the pandemic, where public transportation and ride-sharing apps can potentially put you at risk.
To skip the hassle, look for brake service shops with sufficient capacity and same-day service guarantees on minor repairs, replacements, and maintenance. You’ll find it all at your local TIRECRAFT.
3. What Is The Quality Of The Brake System/Components Being Used?
Not all replacement parts are created equal, and cheap parts don’t pay, especially over the long term! Make sure to ask about the quality of the OEM or aftermarket parts they use.
As a national leader in brake service and automotive repair, TIRECRAFT only uses the best replacement parts and car accessories, and our selection is unparalleled, allowing us to work with just about any budget.
4. Is Your Brake Service Covered Under Any Warranty?
The best brake service providers put their money where their mouth is, which is why TIRECRAFT’s Mechanical Warranty guarantees that all repairs and services performed at any of our 220+ locations will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for 12 months or 20,000 kilometers of use, whichever comes first, measured from the date of the first repair and the odometer reading shown on the original repair order.
