I would highly recommend Steins Garage. If, like me, you are looking for a garage that is honest, reliable and works to a high standard then this is a great place to choose. I brought my car in this week for a MOT and service. It turned out that it also needed some additional work done. Craig phoned me to explain and we discussed when I would need to collect the car (it was ready on time). It needed 2 new tyres and Craig talked through the different options both in terms of price and quality. One of his team also showed me the damaged parts that had been removed from the car so I fully understood what needed to be done. Overall, the price was very fair and the car was even thoroughly cleaned inside and out (it hasn't been this clean since I bought it!).Read More

I dropped off my Nissan Almera for a full service and MOT this morning at Steins Garage. Craig was friendly and efficient and kept me informed on his progress with the car. By 12 noon, the service was completed and the car had passed the MOT. This is the first time I used an independent garage and I will definitely be going back to Steins Garage next time. Brilliant service and very good value for money.Read More

I got my first car earlier this week with problems with the handbrake and didn't about any other problems. Tried and look for a good garage to take my car to and found Steins Garage with really good reviews so I took it here.
As the results, service is great, quick and efficient. Even though, they are supposed to be very busy this week and said that I'd get it by next week but they got my car done within one working day which is absolutely fast. Good value for money as it is a lot cheaper than going to Kwik Fit or any other garages that advertise on tele.Read More

I moved to Edinburgh for work a year ago and didn't know which garages were fair so wasted my time and money with Farmer.
This year I did a bit more research and found Steins garage very highly rated. Booked my car in a few days beforehand for MOT and major service at very fair price of £150. Unfortunately a lot of work needed done and Craig and his team were very fair with their quote. I checked with my dad who works with the car industry in Aberdeen and the big players (Arnold Clark etc) would easily have charged over £1000 for a job Craig and his team worked flat out to get finished the same day for less than half the cash.
Very impressed with Craig and his team's highly professional service and makes me even more supportive of independent, trusted garages.
Company response : Glad to be of help,like the fact,that you are supporting local independent businesses.

I have been a customer of Stein's Garage for 5 years and have had my car serviced and MOT'd throughout the period. The service that I have received has been 1st class and the quality of work extremely good. I have referred the garage to friends and colleagues with every confidence that they will receive the same high quality service that I have received. In addition to the quality of the service I have found the rates to have been more than competitive. I have no hesitation in recommending this efficient, professional and friendly garage.Read More

Used Steins Garage for a major brake repair after we had an advisory on our last MOT and the problem had since worsened. We had never visited a local garage before so the choice was mainly down to online reviews and it proved a great one. Craig explained in detail what needed to be done and only replaced what needed to be replaced, and for much less than what was quoted in one of the chain garages. Our Brakes are running perfectly now and we also had our fluids topped up for free. We'll be going back for a service and MOT in a couple of weeks.Read More
Company response : Thanks Ashram,for your kind words,see you again soon Buddy.

Hi all, I have just had my annual M O T and service at Steins Garage in Leith. I have been using this Garage for a few years now and Craig and his staff do a brilliant job. I drive a 12 year old Megane and I am sure that it is the hard work of the Steins team that it is still on the road. Look no further Quality work, reasonable prices and a well presented car at the end of it means that I will keep going back.Read More
Company response : Thanks for your kind words,as always I'm glad to be of help,see you not to soon,Kindest Regards Craig.

First used Steins on a personal recommendation after being told by another garage that they'd need to replace a full twin exhaust system at a cost in excess of £500 because some of the parts holding it onto the car had rusted. I was on a tight deadline for getting it through the MOT, so Craig was absolutely brilliant and got me booked in the next day. I'm pretty sure he worked late to help me and the existing exhaust system was made good with a couple of welds for a nominal charge. This time around I didn't hesitate to book the service and MOT with Craig and again found him and his colleagues to be everything you want from a local garage, great knowledge, friendly service, and sensible prices.Read More
Company response : As I'm sure you will know,we are very grateful for your kind comments.

Used Steins Garage for MOT and service for a few years now and always had a good experience. A few more car issues (exhaust and plastic body part) more recently and Craig has been very helpful sorting these out. Great communications and customer service and a fast, efficient and friendly service all round.
Company response : We as always looking after your pride & joy,Kindest Regards Craig.

I've been going to Craig for seven years now and always received excellent advice and service. I've just had the car in for its annual service and the extra checks carried out identified additional repairs that will save me grief and money in the future. Knowing that level of care is provided each time provides tremendous peace of mind. I continue to recommend Stein's to friends.
Company response : We like your kind comments,hope to see you again,but not to soon buddy.

My wife phoned to get my car booked for an MoT as I work away, managed to get an appointment 2 days later, which is exactly what I needed. I got home from work the night before the MoT, gave the car a once over and 3 of my headlight bulbs had gone. Took the car to Steins explained the situation to Craig and he sourced the bulbs, fitted them and then MoT'd the car all within 2 hours and for only £70.
The guys there were very friendly to deal with and honest about what needed doing and what was done on the car.
Absolutley fantastic service and I would recommend them to anyone.Read More
