    Looking for a good garage to get new brake pads fitted to a fiat ducato on a alko chassis


    We are working in the northeast of England and need new pads fitted to our motorhome before our winter trip and would be very grateful for any recommendations .

    Had a bit of a nightmare today with northeast vans and trucks in Billingham 8 hours for a mot and they broke the lock on the cab door so I did not let them touch the brakes of course they deny they broke the lock.

    Our van is serviced by a mobile mechanic we've known for over 25 years, Paul Barnard.

    I'm surprised at NE Truck & Van. They fixed our exhaust OK and I've bought a couple of parts there.
