The Best Brake Service
in Red Deer, AB

Brake Issues? Our Technicians are Heavy Duty Brake Experts.

We're well versed with modern braking systems, including air brakes, and our repair shop in Red Deer, Alberta, is fully qualified to inspect, service, and even repair your heavy-duty brakes.

Why is it important to keep my brakes in good working condition?

Unlike standard vehicles, heavy trucks are fitted with air brakes, meaning they depend on air rather than fluids for braking. Even with such a reliable and efficient braking system, the design and weight of a heavy truck alone place an enormous amount of strain on individual braking components. This translates to an even greater danger on the road in case the brakes fail. Regular heavy-duty brake service ensures that your braking system remains in tip-top condition, hence preventing issues that can bring danger to you and others on the road.

How do I know that my truck needs brake service?

If you feel your brakes aren't performing correctly, you shouldn't wait—have your heavy-duty brakes inspected at our repair shop in Red Deer today.

Signs that your heavy truck needs brake inspection include:

  • Pulling: Feeling your vehicle pull to the left or right can indicate issues with the air brake hoses, brake pots, tires or truck alignment
  • High-pitched squealing: If you hear this kind of noise, its a clear indicator that your brake shoes need a replacement ASAP!
  • Vibrations: Do you experience consistent vibrations even when braking normally? It could be a sign that your drums are experiencing warping.
  • Grinding when applying the brakes: If you feel or hear a grinding sound while braking, it is a tell tale sign that your brake shoe pads are work out beyond repair. Salvage your brake pots and drums while you still can, by bringing in your heavy truck in for an inspection at our shop today.

My radiator blew a hole on a Saturday evening; Paddy let me have it towed that night to his shop and went in on a Sunday for a full diagnosis. He was professional, efficient and did a fantastic job taking care of the repairs I ended up needing, in a timely manner. I recommend Paddy and OTR for everyone's automotive needs.

Went in for an oil change, found out that the oil pan was cracked and also there was damage to other parts of the car and so it turned out to be a very expensive repair. Took some extra time but was able to get all the needed parts in and car is now working great. Friendly service and quality job.

Super Happy I found a great HD mechanic in Red Deer!! Paddy @ OTR was first class in his attention to detail and finding a quick solution to get us back on the Road. We are out of Edmonton and go back and forth to calgary a lot, So having a great mechanic in the middle is perfect for those “just in case” scenarios.
