Get To Know BuyBrakes: Our Capabilities

At, we want you to know we are more than a reputable retailer of high-quality brake parts. We are so much more.

Beyond selling the best aftermarket brands, we can think of 6 exciting capabilities that put us above all others:

1. We Machine Brake Rotors

We have a machine shop, where we can machine brake rotors. COVID-19 caused a labor
shortage at StopTech for machining, which, unfortunately, left a product shortage almost everywhere. Because Stoptech is in such high demand, we built a program to meet the demand that is supported by the Stoptech factory, to finish their rotors from their blanks to the exact specifications as a Stoptech machined rotor.

The program allows us to take Centric “blank” brake rotors and machine them to meet StopTech specs. It’s a great solution because the same company owns Centric and StopTech. All Centric and StopTech rotors start with the same blanks. That means the quality of these rotor brands will be the same. To be more specific about our process, we finish-machine the drilled holes and slots in the Centric rotors. This converts the Centric rotors into StopTech rotors. You can find out more about our program through this COVID-19 announcement.

2. We Maintain Great Relationships With Key Manufacturers

We make a point to carry only the best brands on the market. Not only that, we also maintain great relationships with these top part manufacturers. Each brand we carry has authorized us to be a direct reseller of their products. This benefits our customers in two ways: We are able to guarantee the lowest prices online, and we offer factory-direct installation assistance.

3. We Have ASE Certified Brake Concierge Staff

Have you ever called a company, only to end up with a call center employee who doesn’t know much about the products? It’s pretty frustrating, isn’t it? You don’t have to worry about that with the team at

Our brake concierge staff knows what they’re talking about. In fact, they are all ASE certified brake technicians. Our US-based concierge staff includes:

  • Mechanics
  • Brake merchandise experts
  • Race car technicians

So if you call them with a complicated question about brake parts, you will get an accurate answer.

You can get in touch with our brake concierge service Monday through Friday, between 6am and 6pm PST. You can reach them via:

  • Phone call

4. We Study Each Product We Carry

Studying all our products helps us understand all the products we carry inside and out. Doing this also enables our brake concierge staff to help our customers in the best way possible.

To be more specific:

  • We pore over the test data and performance specs of each product
  • We write the information in layman’s terms to make it easy for our customers to understand
  • We use the information to offer useful advice to our customers

5. We Share Product Availability On Our Website

Our website has product availability in real time. This provides total transparency to our customers. If you order a part from us, you’ll know if it’s in stock.

6. We Offer Free And Fast Shipping

Because it is important for you to receive your brake parts fast, we offer only UPS full-service shipping. We do not use those cheaper options that hand your package off from carrier to carrier, just to save a few dollars. We have a great relationship with UPS and negotiated discounted shipping rates to benefit customers. In fact, these discounted rates enable us to offer free shipping on most products.
