Great service. Always willing to take the time to explain and show you the problem. You cannot get this kind of service at a shop and he does the work at your house! No more shuttling cars to shops and having to wait or have a friend pick you up and take you back to get your car.
Was fair and honest with the repair work and finished in just over an hour....many thanks!

Brandon is a great asset! That I would schedule a service and he would be honest enough to tell me that I didn't need that done, was a HUGE deal to me. Brandon has come out before and he's always treated us well. At this appointment he went above and beyond and saved me $180.00! We'll keep asking for Brandon for Sure! :-)
He is a nice guy was very helpful.

My first time experience was great. Frank called when was running behind schedule. He called when he arrived at my home. Very professional, very polite, very knowledgeable of the job and what he was doing in his job expertise. Check car out, told me what the issue really was, gave recommendation to keep a eye put on various things that could c as use a issue in the future. A all around wonderful person. I would recommend Frank to my friends and I will be using him again in the future. Thank you Ms Bracey

Jacob was a great help! I ordered a service much more expensive than I needed and ended up a VERY satisfied customer. / Originally, I had scheduled an oil change and front brake pad replacements. When he arrived, he informed me that my brakes were still in good working condition, but I needed a less-expensive adjustment (brake tightening, I believe). / He was able to not only make the refund process simple, but he was also able to pick up the replacement part and get the work done in no time. / In addition, he was very patient and informative with all my questions. This level of service makes me extremely likely to be a repeat customer! / Thanks, Jacob

Adjust Drum Brakes Service

What are drum brakes all about?

In older vehicles (usually ones manufactured before 1999), the rear brakes are drum brakes. The drum is a large medal cylindrical housing with brake shoes attached to it. When you press on the brake pedal, brake fluid helps the brake shoe apply pressure to the brake drum, which slows down your vehicle. Over time, the brake drum will wear thin, as constant friction with the brake shoe wears the drum away. When this happens the drum brakes will need to be adjusted to keep them close to the shoe, so that braking is still efficient.

Keep in mind:

  • Some drum brakes systems adjust automatically.
  • When adjusting the drum brakes it’s important to check the wear and tear on both the drums and the brake shoes, to see when both will need to be replaced.

How it's done:

  • Adjust the rear drum brakes

Our recommendation:

Your entire braking system should be routinely serviced. Each component of your system, including the drum brakes, should be examined during tuneups and servicing, and you should schedule regular inspections for the braking system. The braking system is the most critical safety feature on your vehicle, so you should not postpone brake-related services.

What is a common symptom indicating you need to adjust the drum brakes?

  • Softer brake pedal

How important is this service?

Older cars rely on drum brakes for the rear wheels. Drum brakes are a large, metal cylindrical housing on each wheel that are necessary to help your vehicle slow down or stop. Attached to the drum brakes are the brake shoes. When you deploy the brake pedal, brake fluid runs to the brake shoes, and helps them apply pressure to the brake drums. The friction between the drums and the shoes slows down your vehicle. This constant friction makes the drum brakes thinner over time, as the surface layer of the drum keeps wearing off. As the drums become thinner, the space between them and the shoes grows. This distance means that the shoes do not come into as strong of contact with the drums as they normally do, and the braking system will be less efficient than normal.
