A SafeTstop check can provide you with peace of mind – knowing your brakes, wheel alignment and suspension are keeping you safe.   The printed report with date and time is easy to understand and will alert you if your vehicle needs adjusting. Other TESTS miss many of these adjustments, so be sure to work with the best – just ask!

The benefits of a SafeTstop check:

Are your brakes really safe?

You never know when you will need to stop in a hurry. Most of us trust that our car’s brakes will work effectively when we really need them to, and rely on regular service inspections to check that they are in good working order. Every workshop will ‘check’ your brakes, but very few can actually ‘test’ your brakes. This is where the SafeTstop testing centres are different.

You can trust your family’s safety to a SafeTstop test. It provides an added safety check that goes beyond a general inspection and road test to scientifically test your braking capacity and ensure maximum stopping performance

Increase your tyre life and fuel efficiency

The SafeTstop test includes an electronic tyre wear check that not only adds to your car’s safety but can save you money. SafeTstop tests your wheel alignment on both front and rear axles and the actual drag from your tyres on the road surface.

Having your wheels correctly aligned ensures you have the right amount of ‘rubber on the road’ therefore reducing the wear and tear on your tyres which means you don’t have to replace them as often. Correct alignment also means better fuel consumption.

Brake and SuspensionFacts

But what does that tell you? Brakes save lives when they work correctly. Your car will NOT stop properly in an emergency if each wheel is not braking properly. Test each wheel so you KNOW your brakes are 100%. 

A car must have the front to rear and side to side brake balance correctly adjusted.

It is important that the wheels of your car travel straight on the road, otherwise tyres wear unevenly and don't last. 

Avoiding a crash usually means stopping or swerving suddenly - which depends on how well the suspension works.
