Turn around times start from when calipers are received by us NOT when they are sent.

Turnaround times do not include weekends or published holiday periods (i.e. Christmas) and are based on averages on common brake calipers. We don't recommend you use these turnaround times for rare or classic vehicles or for booking work at garages etc.

Parts

While we stock most parts for most calipers, there are calipers which have rare parts which we have to source on demand and the turnaround times are affected by the speediness of the 3rd parties we rely on for sourcing some parts. We will inform you as soon as we are aware of any issues, while this is relatively rare, it is worth considering asking us if we have issues with your calipers before sending them into us if i.e. you have a track day or holiday booked shortly after you hope to have your calipers back. If you have a rare or classic vehicle, we will only assume that parts are available and we cannot be held responsible if we are unable to source parts or if we are waiting on backorder parts from manufacturers. So if your car is classic or rare, the turnaround time guidelines shown here may not be relevant to your vehicle. Please understand that there are tens of thousands of parts which are required running our business.

Additional Engineering Work

Please also be aware that not all calipers arrive needing only the work quoted, we frequently find snapped bolts, sheered brackets and all sorts of other issues. For some jobs we outsource to our local engineer (30 years exp) who can deal with anything that can't be dealt with in our workshop. This will also add time to your job, while this is relatively rare, it is worth considering asking us if we have issues with your calipers before sending them into us if i.e. you have a track day or holiday booked shortly after you hope to have your calipers back. In the rare event you aren't happy with an updated invoice price, please note there will be an assessment charge to cover the cost of the work already performed.

Re-use of Parts

Our complete refurbishment service involves the replacement of all parts where required. We don't quote for pistons to be replaced as standard as these are often in good working order, rather than push the average price of our services up and replace all pistons as standard, we think it is fair that they are only paid for where required. Our function warranty on a full refurb ranges from 4 years to 10 years, so we have to be sure that they will at least last duration. Where we have quoted for rubber parts to be replaced, some are reused, but go through a refurbishment process themselves. We believe that refurbishing brake calipers is an environmental friendly option and as such, don't believe in filling land fill with perfectly good parts that would have outlasted our warranty. This occurs around 1 in 10 times.

Turnaround Times

Turnaround times are based on averages and are guidelines, not promises and they are not set in stone, they vary from week to week depending on how busy we are. Sometimes we are much faster and frequently turn what should have been a 7 day job around in 2 days, although rare the same type of 7 day job can take longer than expected, although this is usually due to additional work or waiting for parts, this can cause very rare delays of up to 3 months if we are waiting on backorder parts. Please do not take this guide literally or make appointments with garages etc based on the turnaround times described here as sometimes work can take longer or our quality control measures pick up the occasional fault which can require rework.

Priority Turnaround Times

Choosing the PRIORITY service will add a surcharge to your invoice. If we do not complete the work within 2 days of quoted time, you will receive a full refund on the additional cost paid to us.

Depending on the value of your invoice or how often you use us, we may provide Priority at no additional cost. In this case, where priority failures occur, you will not be entitled to any refunds. We will not be held liable for any expense incurred for car hire, missed holidays, MOT slots, track time/events or any other thing that may be considered similar.

PRIORITY is only available where parts are easily accessible, so we would not offer this to a customer with a set of calipers where data is limited, i.e imports or where parts have to be sourced from USA etc. Please do not assume you can have the PRIORITY service without speaking with us first.

Pricing

We cannot guarantee that your invoice will match your estimate, sometimes customers require additional engineering work or to custom make parts not available. Potential additional charges include engineering work including bolt extractions, re-threads, helicoils, making inserts to name a few. Charges can range from £15 to £120 per job depending on the level of work required. While these kinds of additional costs are relatively infrequent, we are obliged to inform you of any such potential charges.

Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance

All our work is fully insured with up to £5,000,000 for Products and Professional Services Indemnity and £10,000,000 for Public Liability. A copy of our certificates can be emailed to you at your request. There have been no claims in the history of our company and we have QA and QC systems and processes in place to ensure this remains the case. As a company that specialises in only brake calipers, our insurers regard us as a high risk trade and as a result, such cover comes at a considerable cost to the business, although we would never be without it. We have high regard for our own peace of mind and yours.

Quality Assurance

We operate a Lean Six Sigma process that ensures we are constantly improving. Our systems and processes, coatings, software and communication methods are regularly scrutinised. We ask all customers for feedback via an automated questionnaire (ensuring we never forget to ask your opinion), we believe that you are the best judges of our products and services and all the Six Sigma in the world won't be able to deliver our 'current state' as well as you can.

As mentioned above, our trade is high-risk for insurers. Without measures in place, there is a lot that can go wrong in our business and the stakes are high. Thankfully, we are a company who puts customers before profit and never cut corners, our ever improving systems and processes ensure we maintain our very high standards and we make sure our customers have the best stopping power in the world. Our insurance company also demands that certain standards are met in order to remain in cover, this includes a specific industry proven method of pressure testing brake calipers. In all, we hope that we are the best caliper refurbishment company in the world, as it is certainly our aim.

Returns & Re-Work

Mistakes rarely happen, while this is very rare, we accidentally ship calipers back to our customers with minor faults.

Should you make us aware of any faults either before or during fittment, we will arrange shipping with our carrier and at our expense both ways. We will not be held liable for shipping expenses where you have paid retail prices for shipping. We will only refund a maximum of £10 for any shipping transactions you have made without our approval.

We are require at least one opportunity to rectify any defects or faults with our work. No refunds will be provided unless a second attempt to rectify any faults is unsuccesful. Due to the nature of some brake calipers, certain operational checks cannot be completed unless the caliper is fitted to the vehicle, in particular handbrake mechanism faults under no-pedal pressure.
