The garage knows Women are professional shoppers who can be demanding on occasion. Yet despite the undoubted value of their business few females enjoy their garage visits, because they worry about being baffled by jargon, patronised for being female or being overcharged. This leads to many women postponing their visits to garages until they have to and can be overly assertive when they do, for fear off being ripped off. This is not good for business nor is it a good basis for a long term customer relationship something Steins Garage are actively doing. Steins Garage have proved the garage is female friendly through the reviews section alone.
Steins Garage, have noticed that in today's economy, more women than ever before, are enquiring to us, to get their car fixed, keep up the good work ladies and please don't let problems, with your pride and joy progress.

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.

Efficient friendly service and quality work at a competitive price.
Company response : This customer of ours been coming to us for 10 years + when her old proton packed in & since she wasn't that knowledgeable on cars,she looked to me for advice, I went out my way searching for a decent car for her,it also needed to be an automatic,found an excellent focus with 50,000 miles,(from my trusted car garages I use)for a good price! It also got checked by us,we are happy with car Needless to say that she is delighted with her pride & joy & all the help we gave our customer.

Due to past experiences I am quite wary about independent garages but decided to give Steins garage a try due to the positive reviews on their website. My first experience was very positive - friendly service, good impartial advice and great value. I will definitely be using them again.

Craig is friendly, efficient and approachable. My golf TDI hadn't been serviced for a couple of years and when I took it to a Volkswagen garage they told me it didn't a lot of work done which was going to cost a fortune. Craig carried out the same work at a fraction of the price. The car is now feeling brand new. I would recommend his garage to anyone. Thanks!
Company response : Thanks Katherine,your pride & joy did need lots of work done on it,but now I'm glad to say your car is a lot safer!

The friendly and knowledgeable staff were able to quickly diagnose why my Vauxhall Astra wasn't running smoothly - the spark plugs needed changing. It was sorted out within a couple of hours and now my car is running much more smoothly.
Company response : We pointed out to the customer,(at collection),that at 40,000 miles spark plugs on this model of car, are due for renewal,according to the information we hold on our online catalogue, this car was at 47,000 miles! The plugs were defective,after changing,the car is now perfect!

My Renault started to give a strange knocking noise so I called Steins garage to arrange a service and my car was booked in for the next day. They did a great job to fix the car very fast and for a reasonable price. The car was ready in 24 hours and since that its working brilliantly. The only garage I will use from now and I highly recommend to everyone.
Company response : Glad you are happy with the service,just give me a call when you next need our help!

Called up to arrange a service and my car was booked in for the very next day. Craig and his team did a great job checking the car over for a reasonable price. Although no work was required I noticed an improvement in ride quality even on the short drive home. I explained to Craig that I was planning on selling the car and he helpfully wrote a note for me to share with future purchaser outlining the condition of the car based on his checks, and he also offered to take a call from potential buyers to discuss - a nice touch. Very helpful service was much appreciated and am sure I'll be back to Steins in future. Read More
Company response : This customer is selling his nice car,I'm more than happy,recommending his Jaguar,to the next lucky owner,just stating at the time of us servicing his car,that it is in good condition & been looked after.

I heard a knocking noise on my 2008 Toyota Yaris every time I turned right around a corner or a roundabout. It was a bit disconcerting and so, I searched online for a reputable Toyota mechanic and came across Stein's Garage with many good reviews. So, I sent an email and received a prompt reply from Craig who told me that he thought it could be a dropped link. I took the car over today at 8:30 and, after just over a couple of hours later, around 11am got a call back from Craig telling me he had given the car a thorough going over and could find nothing wrong. To be honest, on the journey over, I tried to swing around every right hand corner with a bit of extra speed to make the noise happen but, just like when you go to the doctor, it didn't happen and I and didn't experience the noises I had last week. So, in all honesty, it was a bit of a relief to find that I wasn't facing a big bill for new suspension or whatever and I told Craig that. He said that it was quite possible that the knocking could come back and, if and when it did, he would happily look at it again. I thanked him for checking it all over and asked how much I was owe him. He told me that there was no charge ! Can you imagine my surprise? Especially when he said that he had checked the brake pads and they were all fine. He just said that he would appreciate my future business for a service or any other auto needs. You can be sure I WILL go back next time my car is in need of any repair. Craig is the kind of guy who will restore your faith in car mechanics. Trust me. This man has integrity.

Called Wednesday afternoon, booked in Friday morning. Had to drop it off (a couple of parking spots outside) the night before due to flat battery, but car held what little charge it had anyway and started next morning. Call back later Friday morning saying it had passed and picked it up 30 mins later. Guys were nice and understanding, especially given the last minute nature of the MOT and my car's situation. Certainly recommended. Read More
Company response : Glad to be of help,that's what we are here for.

We have used Stein's garage for MOT and servicing of both our cars for the last four years. I now wouldn't trust anyone else with my V6 Mazda! Consistently professional; honest; efficient; friendly and value for money. Craig recently repaired a broken clutch pedal with absolutely superb customer service (massive thanks again for that one). Since then the car's been serviced including oil flush and replacing a split air intake hose. Also went for BG products fuel additive that Craig recommended. I have certainly noticed a marked improvement in the car's performance over the last couple of weeks since this was done. Delighted.
Overall, great service as usual. Highly recommended.

I have used Steins for the past 18 months. Originally for MOT and Service and more recently for a repair. All this work has been carried out to a very high standard and the service has been friendly and prompt. Any work to be carried is fully explained and the cost for the work very reasonable.
Company response : Very glad to be of help,Kindest Regards Craig.

Craig done a full inspection of car and carried out all necessary repairs. He reversed the front suspension as car had been lowered and carried out additional work over and above our expectations. We are 2 females embarking on a new business and were very grateful for explanation of work carried out, attention to detail and value for money. All staff were very friendly and we will diffently be returning for all car needs in the future and will be recommending Craig to family and friends. Read More
