With many years' experience in the MOT testing, servicing and repairs sector, Steins Garage is a long established family run business, offering reasonable pricing to customers throughout the local area. Established in 1992, the business is situated in Edinburgh.
The business delivers a range of services to local people, which are designed to be cost effective for everyone. With a fully fitted workshop, the business also has friendly staff helping customers to get back on the road, usually on the same day.

With a close-knit unit of 3 hard working tradesmen, Steins Garage has a highly efficient team, qualified to a high standard.

Steins Garage has a continually expanding group of customers, situated in and around Edinburgh, including several local organizations in the Leith area.

Steins Garage does also offer email/text reminders - just sign up at the website. Steins Garage support local small businesses. Steins Garage tries wherever possible to use Edinburgh Motor Factors, who are a trusted factors, who were based in Thorntree Industrial Estate but had to relocate to Peffermill Industrial Estate due to home development. They sell quality products at a fair price. We are all hoping that Mr P.Evans, the man who started it all,gets well soon. Steins Garage are pleased to endorse City Mobile Tyres, RS Coachworks, Diamondshine Valeting and Crystal clear Windscreens - (companies that are independently owned, that do a good job for a fair price and whose contact details can be provided).

The business is able to offer a comprehensive range of garage services, including MOT testing. The products Steins Garage use are quality for everyday use and can help keep motoring costs at a fair price. Steins Garage are FEMALE FRIENDLY. 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.

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

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.

Regards.

Dan and Sue - Edinburgh.

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

Craig was pleasant to deal with, did what they said he'd do and good value. Would recommend.

Unless you know about cars, the car repair business can be a bit hit and miss. You never really know what you're getting. Having just used Steins Garage for the first time, I was very impressed by the professional service provided. I was given a step by step list of the work required, together with a breakdown of costs - before the work was carried out. As a new customer I was also given a discount on the work. I found Steins after it was recommended by a friend. I would have absolutely no hesitation in in recommending Steins to anyone else.
Refreshingly honest.

I was recommended to try Steins Garage by a friend who has used them for many years. I am now hooked - I have since moved to Fife but I still bring my car to Craig for MOT, service and repairs. As a woman I always felt I was being ripped off by the 'big boys' but now I feel totally secure in the knowledge that Craig and his staff will always give me good service and value for money. Thanks guys!
Company response : Hi Avril,very glad of your business,also,very glad you make the long trip from fife to see us,its much appreciated,just to let you know,I have a customer that travels from Aberdeen,1st thing she heads for,on arrival,is the toilet,this one time,for a laugh,got a big arrow & pointed out the toilet direction.lol You know we like a laugh,life is far too serious!

Very grateful to have found Steins Garage. MOT ran out on Friday and knowing I would be searching last minute on a Saturday to get one done and most likely ripped off by the big companies, they offered to do it outwith their normal working hours and for a bargain price. Female friendly and organised service- would definately recommend!
Company response : We love to help everyone when its possible,thanks for your kind words,Regards Craig.
