Tyre Repair and Replacement

McConechy's Tyre Service

90 Salamander St, Edinburgh EH6 7LA, UK – 0131 554 0301

Helpful guys, changed the tyre and put it on the vehicle and put my spare back in its place under the van. Reccomend them if you want good service at decent prices

Quick and efficient service. Reasonable price. I will use this place again.

National Tyres and Autocare

Ratcliffe Terrace, Edinburgh EH9 1SS, UK – 0131 667 2038

I'm a qualified mechanic who changed careers a decade ago, I only use garages for MOT's and tyre fitting. After being scammed by Farmers around the corner too many times I decided to try National. Now let's be honest, they don't have the patter, free coffee and fancy waiting area. But I have checked their work and it's perfect. I nearly choked as the bill was less than half what I'd expected after using Farmers for years. Very pleasant surprise to pay less than I expected and to then see the work is faultless. These guys are my new go-to garage.

I can of course only speak from my own experience of the service here and see that others have spoken less highly. My 1st visit was a flat tyre discovered just by the garage, needed replacing because of 2 screws in it☹. I had my wee 2 year old Nina with me and they were able to take it straight away☺. The 2nd was for the MOT at short notice. They took within 3 days of request and passed with no surprises. You have to remember that reviews are very subjective and if you had a long wait the real reason may not be visible. Any thing else I would not comment on.

National Tyres and Autocare

394 Ferry Rd, Edinburgh EH5 3QG, UK – 0131 551 2171

Very friendly and knowledgeable service and advice. Huge price range (tyres) from budget to high performance. No appointment necessary, although it is advisable to call before hand to check that they have part in stock and to avoid booked jobs. You can leave your car with them so you can carry on with your day and pick it up at a convenient time.

Experienced excellent service from start to finish with the boss Graham himself, who was ever so informative and polite. Had a problem with my car battery were the liquid was coming out from it. It basically needed replacing after doing a few checks. You guys have now got yourself a regular customer.

Needed some metric brake unions and this place had a full selection of thread pitches and lengths, both metric and imperial. I was able to make my choice and only pay just for what I needed. Great service from someone who was on my wavelength

Really super wee motor factor, v helpful chap, sorted me out with temp wing mirror glass for great prce.

Pilrig Motors

328 Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 5BU, UK – 0131 554 1034

Nice place to buy fluids and basic parts. Staff are really helpful. It looks closed from the outside but don't be put off.

Quick, knowledgeable guys and clean. Always will recommend them.

Tyre & Battery Depot

91 Lauriston Pl, Edinburgh EH3 9JB, UK – 0131 229 3410

Great tyre shop (and batteries) right in the middle of Edinburgh. Great price for tyres - had mine done today and bought a battery a few weeks ago. Excellent service. Very convenient if you live centrally or even if you just need things done it you're in the city.

John's fantastic, the only place I get my tyres. It's good to keep small business open like this. John's just as well priced as the major brands and you get a one 2 one service instead of just an in and out. Plus you get to help the wee businesses not just throw more money to the big brands. Same tyres, same if not better price and much better service!

Work done to a great standard. Had wiring/auxiliary lights and reverse sensors fitted. Its a shame the place is so far away from me as I'd have something every other month for Sean to do. As with everything, I had a cheap Chinese product and it failed which is nobody's fault but my own. Will be taking my car there to get the ECU taken out and remapped also.

I asked for an upgrade for the system in my van. Excellent result and for a great price too. Definitely will use again in the future.

The University of Edinburgh

Old College, South Bridge, Edinburgh EH8 9YL, UK – 0131 650 1000

The professors here (for my program at least) were great! But then the strike came and it showed me how little the school cares about the students. They have done nothing to help us out and we were left to complete our degree on our own. On top of that, the student accommodation is overpriced. Good luck getting anyone here to actually care about your education.

Good stafffs, good faculty members. The only complaint is the material of its certificate which is too thin and does not look classy at all, try using a thicker paper please.

Car Audio

Sound and Vision Technical Services

Leith Walk, Edinburgh EH6 5BX, UK – 0131 553 2126

Absolutely stellar service. I rang up to arrange to bring my elderly television in, and when I described the problem, Paul told me what the issue was likely to be, and what it would be likely to cost to put right. When I brought it in, he looked at it for less than a minute, saw that it was in 'deep standby', turned it on for me, explained what had happened and why, and refused to take any payment. He also offered me a free second-hand remote control. I chose to bring my telly there because of the brilliant reviews he had received, and he definitely deserves every one of those positive reviews. Although there was nothing actually wrong with my telly, it's not something I could have done myself, and I would have been perfectly happy to pay him for his expertise, but he wouldn't take anything. I'm completely delighted, and recommend him wholeheartedly. He clearly knows his stuff and it's fantastic to find someone who could have taken the telly in and charged a lot of money, but didn't. I'd give him ten stars if I could.

Always friendly, helpful and extremely competent. Have used them on several occasions. Highly recommended!

Really good lessons and shop.

Richer Sounds, Edinburgh

1B Chambers St, Edinburgh EH1 1HR, UK – 0333 900 0026

I originally found Richer Sounds through Amazon as I was looking for an amp to power two 100 watt vintage speakers my Dad bought in the 1970s. I spoke to a knowledgeable friend about the Amazon speakers and he suggested that I go into the Richer Sounds shop to get some advice. All in all a very good experience, it is quite a big ticket item for me so I was happy to make the purchase in the shop as I think I now have a product which I am comfortable will work well. Also, I have had a very nice email asking how everything has gone etc.

Honest advice from knowledgeable, professional and friendly staff coupled competitive prices on quality products makes Richer Sounds the best place for audio visual kit. Recently had a TV fail under warranty, no problems getting a credit note and good advice on choosing a replacement model. Would definitely recommend.

fantastic service and quality cars. thank you

Great service from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble for Andrew, I would recommend this garage to anyone.

Redpath & McLean

67 Salamander St, Edinburgh EH6 7JZ, UK – 0131 554 9969

We had the great pleasure of dealing with Keith recently whilst looking for a new car. He was very relaxed and has a very no pressure approach to sales. He was more than happy to let us take the car out for a test drive by ourselves for as long as we wanted and got the small issues we found with it sorted in no time at all before we picked it up. On top of that he gave us a very fair deal on our trade in. You never know what you're going to get when you walk into a second hand dealer, but the reviews here speak volumes compared with competitors. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and his team at all. Edit: We since had a small issue within the 30 days and again Keith and his team have been absolutely brilliant in regards to getting it fixed for us. We couldn't recommend them more.

Recommended to me by my highly trusted garage, this company didn't disappoint. I see a car as just a means of transport, rarely buy and generally have little idea! Keith and Colin made the process as painless as it could be for someone like me! And when my garage (who know me quite well) advised me my first choice was probably not appropriate for me, they could not have been more helpful and flexible in letting me change my mind. I'm left feeling confident I've made a good purchase.

HAVEN CARS LTD

Summerside Pl, Edinburgh EH6 4PA, UK – 07518 984863

Just bought an A3 s-line from Mandi... cars immaculate inside and out especially for having done 92000 miles. Was very helpful in getting the process through. I would likely go back when done with this one and looking for next car.

Nice place, very professional.

Car Rental

Enterprise Rent-A-Car

12 Annandale St, Edinburgh EH7 4AN, UK – 0131 557 0000

Very friendly and helpful staff. We were upgraded to a nicer vehicle as the one booked wasn't available. Also, Mark was very understanding of a change for drop off time to a few hours later than booked, as we couldn't check into our hotel until the afternoon. Everything go settled at no extra charge and with a smile. Great service, will recommend!

I’m always more likely to rent from Enterprise because their service is always pretty good and this location was no exception. Really friendly and accommodating staff, the location of the branch is really great too. Thank you and keep up the good work. :)

Enterprise Rent-A-Car

Edinburgh Waverley Station (Long Stay) Car Park - Edinburgh | APCOA, New St, Edinburgh EH8 8BH, UK – 0131 556 6340

I just had the most delightful, satisfying experience renting a car at the Waverley train station branch. First, I noticed how hard all staff were working-3 or 4 running to get cars, promptly serving the next customer in queue, professionally and courteously handling a customer with an issue, working hard at their computers. Then I had the pleasure of being assisted by Bronwyn, who welcomed me with a big smile and a can-do attitude. She was very efficient, knowledgeable, willing to be of service, and professional. She made sure I understood the details and how to work the car. She just made the whole experience easy and pleasant. Similarly, when I returned the car today, Phil was extremely polite, efficient, knowledgeable and helpful. I have rented numerous cars over the years, and I think this branch is exceptional. All staff seemed lovely. Granted, the location is somewhat chaljenging, as it is in an old parking lot several floors down but part of the charm of Edinburgh is that many areas are centuries old. Thats how the city is. Got a nice new car, worked brilliantly and no trouble at all.

Probably the only rental place for new drivers (licence holder less than two years). Good service, I got a call before pick up with a reminder of what documents are required and info about deposit, which was a nice touch. Would definitely use again.

Avis

24 E London St, Edinburgh EH7 4BQ, UK – 0344 544 6059

All done very quickly, 5 minutes tops. Same on return. The car didn't have a single spot that I'd want to mark before renting. Friendly personnel.

Very pleasant experience. The staff is helpful and accommodating. The car was well prepared for the hire.

Arnold Clark Car & Van Rental, Edinburgh Seafield

1 Seafield St, Edinburgh EH6 7LG, UK – 0131 561 7779

My first experience with Arnold Clark was quite a pleasant one. I rented a car for a small road trip, and the quality of service and product I received was outstanding. EASY procedure with a LOW COST. The most attractive aspect of their SERVICE is the possibility to pay both with a CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD (NON-UK Accepted) which makes Arnold Clark stand out from other car hire companies. The PRODUCT I received was of a very high standard that stretched beyond my expectations. I definitely recommend to everybody and I will surely be coming back. 5 Stars!

Professional and attentive service. Hired van was in excellent condition, staff took time to walk through all required information at comfortable pace. Price may be higher than in other places but it's worth for peace of mind. One thing to note, there is no customer parking to leave your own car in meantime which is a bit of hassle.

Budget Car Hire Edinburgh

24 E London St, Edinburgh EH7 4BQ, UK – 0344 544 9064

I had read bad reviews about Budget - this branch was mentioned - and was anxious about the car hire I had booked. However this branch was extremely efficient and helpful, especially when the child car seats I had booked were not suitable. Excellent courteous customer care. Thank-you.

Even though there is a shortage on staff, Avis/Budget Car Hire is good value for money for 24hr van rental, has friendly staff and is very centrally located. Would use again!

Car Washes

Bubbles Hand Car Wash

67b Salamander St, Edinburgh EH6 7JZ, UK – 0131 555 5736

I visited this car wash today for the 1st time. I visited at around 5.30pm, it did not take long to get served. The basic wash was £4.50 but I was offered a special which involved a wax spray (I think) for £6. I went for this. The car was washed by hand and went through about 6 different processes, which was pretty impressive. I was happy with the wash and would use this place again.

This place is amazing! Had the special Valet today and my car came out like brand new, the guys are great very professional and great attention to detail, didn’t even have to wait to long and the have a fabulous waiting area. 5* and keep up the great work !

Forthside Autovalets

125 Pitt St, Edinburgh EH6 4DE, UK – 07875 075513

I had my van cleaned inside and out by Forthside Autovalets and I was very impressed with the service I received. Very friendly and professional. The van literally looked brand new. I would highly recommend Forthside Autovalets to anyone.

Cannot fault the staff at Forthside, friendly, professional, carry out superb work with a high attention to detail. I honestly wonder how they can make my car look as good as new every time. Their prices are very reasonable & they are also extremely convenient with the mobile Valeting service, if I can't get to them they come to my work/home! Highly recommended!

Wash 4 U

4 Marine Esplanade, Edinburgh EH6 7LU, UK – 07521 850739

Very good valeting centre. My car was spot on. I done Mini valeting (£20) which was worth full. Owner informed me, only outside wash £3,with dry £5. Better then other manual car wash.

Great car wash

Great at sales for any bike with Neil and David, but aftercare and customer service is becoming more satisfactory, customer satisfaction becoming more of a priority. I would recommend the Glasgow Triumph centre over the Edinburgh site. But the Honda guys definitely have it good at Edinburgh.

Nice guys, had a mixed service experience a few years back but sales team made up for it. Ask Neil about his vintage collection. Need to keep innovating though to keep up with the rest in town such as BMW and Saltire. Love Honda though and David is always Ace

Mark 1 Motorcycles

A good man. Knows his stuff. Not overpriced either. Recommended!

Top mechanic, and very nice guy. Honest and fair. Did a great job servicing my bike. Really fast turn around too. Will definitely be going back.

Edinburgh Triumph

36 Peffermill Rd, Edinburgh EH16 5LL, UK – 0131 668 4775

Needed a clutch lever for my wife's street triple, they had one in stock. Very nice chat on the phone and booked it to my name, and it was sitting waiting for me when I arrived. Great place great staff would go back again.

The Edinburgh Triumph dealer, attached to Two Wheels, so a good sized dealership with a great staff, sales, service and accessories. Bikes are nice too....

Good food, and drinks as well: great prices and you can pay online by card. We had to wait for a table however it was fine as 25mins did fly. And there's always table just for drinks if you don't want food.

Busy, but staff are good. Good is decent, it's a chain, so you're not going to get anything out of the ordinary. But it's perfectly acceptable.

Filling Station

235-241, High St, Edinburgh EH1 1PE, UK – 0131 226 2488

Love wandering around the castle, taking in the vistas around it as well as the history inside the walls. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and all in all it is well worth the visit. Word of advice, pre book tickets to avoid waiting in massive cues. My only criticism would be the amount of time you wait, although I do realize this is due to how popular the attraction is.

Fantastic place for Sunday Brunch. Staff are great, food was amazing. Consider stepping out of your comfort zone and have the vegetarian breakfast... Very tasty. Oh and only down side.....you need to be there early if you want to get freshly squeezed orange juice, although the carton replacement is not too bad

23 Canonmills, Edinburgh EH3 5HA, UK – 0131 557 0556

A truly splendid and magnificent place to stop off if you find that your motor-car is in need of a topping-up with fuel. These delightful people will be only too happy to help, and indeed, you are invited to dispense the petrol or diesel from pump to car by your own fair hand and at your discretion, putting in as much or as little as you yourself may deem necessary

Pricey petrol, but they have a wee M&S here which is great for last-minute quick dinners.

Shell

7 Seafield Rd, Edinburgh EH6 7LE, UK – 0131 553 8958

Fuel usually a couple of pence more expensive than the supermarkets. A pain to exit if you are turning right, towards salamander street

This place sells petrol and diesel. You can wash your car here too and fill your tyres with air. Amazing you can find all these things in one location. If you're peckish the also have a variety of overpriced sandwiches.

Steins garage

18 Gordon St, Edinburgh EH6 8NA, UK – 0131 554 3423

As a young female I was nervous about finding a garage to take my first car to for a wheel bearing change. I followed advice from Reviews on this site and found Steins Garage. Everyone who I had contact with during my visit to Steins was highly professional, kind, friendly and honest. They gave me a fairly priced quote for the work that needed doing, booked my car in promptly for the work, and kept me updated whilst the car was with them. They did high quality work for a very reasonable price, and Craig checked the other wheel bearings to make sure they were safe too. I couldn't be happier with the service received and I will definitely use them again for any work that needs doing on my car. I would 100% recommend this garage to anyone!! :)

Brought my car in for a major service first thing in the morning and it was done well before lunchtime. Craig the mechanic was very honest and told me the spark plugs didn't need doing just yet and knocked off a fairly hefty chunk off my service bill. Would definitely come again if I needed an MOT/Service/Repair. Good location, close to the city centre and easily accessible.

Tynecastle Garage

60 Gorgie Rd, Edinburgh EH11 2NB, UK – 0131 313 2777

Great guys very helpful I was stranded with a flat battery Under 5 mins and they had me on my way again 100% genuine guys 👍🏻

Excellent service. This is the first time I have used Tynecastle Garage and I am really impressed. Friendly and obliging staff and fair price.

Causewayside Garage

31 Ratcliffe Terrace, Edinburgh EH9 1SX, UK – 0131 667 1400

Reliable, honest and affordable garage. They went out of their way to ensure the lowest price option was made available to me and that my Honda Civic was back in perfect working order. They seem genuine and I would highly recommend. It's difficult to find trustworthy garages these days, but these guys did a great job.

When you find a quality, professional, and honest garage - it compels people to write positive reviews. I usually do my business across the road at the National Tyre branch as I know the guys there, but I had a problem with my oil dipstick even they weren't able to address. They recommended this garage across the road. My motor was diagnosed, a very fair quote given, and we organised a date for the diary. Upon returning to collect, payment went very smoothly and quickly, and the repair has been flawless several months after the case. I have spent my fair share of time underneath a car and am mechanically minded, doing my fair share of DIY repairs, so have felt the frustration of dealing with seedy mechanics in the past - but my experience here was fully exemplary and I wouldn't hesitate to bring my 16 year old Golf back here if it was required.

A very good garage, nice and reliable and the workers there are extremely friendly. There are not too expensive either and have always fixed my car. Highly recommend!

Dalziel's MOT & Servicing Centre

17 E Cromwell St, Edinburgh EH6 4DE, UK – 0131 554 5909

They are a friendly, honest and trustworthy team and you can be sure that they will service / Fix / MOT your car in a professional and timely manner. They are certainly worth every penny. I cannot recommend them enough.

Cant fault their work at all. Reasonably priced. Always very helpful. My whole family take their cars there. Customer service is very good.

Car Bodywork Repairs

McLaren Auto Body

6A Tower St, Edinburgh EH6 7BY, UK – 0131 285 0288

I used these guys after a bump as I did not want to be led by the hand by my insurer recommended garage. Bob was great and handled the insurance company as well as getting the car back in tip top shape. The work was done properly rather than just patching up as some garages do. Parts were replaced that needed to be replaced nothing more nothing less. The job was finished with a partial spray and the car is back to pristine. The guys at the garage are down to earth and don't try and give you flannel.

Bob is a gale of fresh air - he offers a friendly professional helping hand to those of us who are not at home with accident insurance claims. He and his team were speedy and effective and my no-claims bonus remains intact; my only worries were whether I ought to have been doing anything. Thanks very much - I would certainly recommend McLaren Auto Body for sound advice and service . JM

R S Coachworks

16 Manderston St, Edinburgh EH6 8LY, UK – 0131 561 4418

I had fully cleaned and polished the paintwork of my 13 year old Fiesta but the alloy wheels were a mess and there was a rust patch I wanted fixed. Raja was very welcoming when I called in at the bodyshop and very helpful, suggesting it would also be worth fixing a dent in a wheel arch. The car looked amazing after the work was done, so huge thanks to him and his team for a great job at a good price. David

Finally found myself an excellent mechanic. Rajas quote was by far the best and most competitive. The car was in from 9-5 and came out looking great, he done some touch up on the paint work and ironed out some scuff marks. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to get some body work is car repairs done. I'll be bribing my car in for an MOT when it's due

K & E Coachworks

7 Jane St, Edinburgh EH6 5HE, UK – 0131 553 2588

I had a very positive experience with K&E. The work was completed to an extremely high standard, billed as estimated and Joe and his team couldn't be nicer to deal with. Highly recommended.

Totally incredible service and work from these guys. Had a decent sized dent and a horrible set of scratches on my beloved Jaguar. Didn’t think that it could be rectified without a new bumper. However, the guys were superb from start to finish. A thorough look at the car and I was talked through what they would look to do. Received quote by email a day or two later. Quote was very competitive compared to others received. Booked in quickly and was told how long it would take. Picked car up yesterday and they had applied their witchcraft to it! Looks better than the day I bought it. Totally seamless job - would never have known there had ever been a problem. Car was washed for me whilst I settled up the bill - at the quoted amount. Service was five star from start to finish. Thanks guys and good luck for the future.
