hi, can anyone recommend a good garage in Edinburgh that would give me a fair/good price to repair my car..

At the moment i'm needed the rear springs replaced for the suspension and i need 4 brake pads and 2 brake discs.

One garage i took it too said they would do it for 300 hundred inc labour costs and vat..

    The worst thing about garages in Edinburgh the business rates are horrendous so you pay a lot of money,you may be better going o/s Edinburgh.

    Stenhouse Motor Engineers Slateford Road,top of Chesser Avenue. are good but a tad expensive

  • I can sympathise!!

    I've tried quite a few garages in Edinburgh, with varying levels of service and price.

    The best one I have found is Hi-Q McCohnehy's (I think that's how you spell it!) in Sighthill. They helped me out quite a bit with a lot of repairs my car needed.

  • there's one on easter road next to a big DIY store i'd strongly reccomend staying well clear of.labour rates appear reasonable but when working there we were told to buy the cheapest parts,get the dearest prices and at least double them before giving quotes. obviously dont want to name names. the staff are well trained but the owners can only be described as mercenary, think the current tv ad about who's looking after your money....
