I have bought several cars over the years from Kevan and continue to go back for all servicing and MOT. He and his team always get the job done. They are polite and will go the extra mile for customers. If there is an issue (rarely and usually with parts) they contact me and give a clear timescale. Been going here 24 years and cannot see why anyone would go elsewhere. A++++

Was quoted almost £300 for work none of which was necessary by a national chain. Got Carnies name from Edinburgh Trusted Trader. In fact no parts were needed only a small adjustment. Now I have someone trustworthy who I can go back to next year for a service and MOT. Appreciated - thank you very much.

Staff are always polite, both office and garage staff. The mechanics explain any issues and are prompt with the work, never had an issues after any completed work, and its easy to book in
The staff always make space if they can!

I have had my car back and forth for several years for M.O.T's, and have always found this garage very fair financially compared to others previously.

I certainly will return, and will promote the excellent service of all staff at the garage to family and friends.

I had 4 new tyres and a major service carried out. The cost was a fraction of what was quoted at a large dealership. Kev and his staff were very pleasant to deal with.
Definitely be back again

I have a car that is getting on a bit now and needs some attention every now and again. Kevan and the team never let me down and keep me on the road. Great service too for MOT's. Started taking my wife's car there as well now and would recommend to anyone :)

I contacted Carnies after another company provided me with an unsatisfactory explanation for a rattle that had developed after they had carried out some work on my car.

Kevan inspected my car while I waited and found that the rattle had been caused by a loose nut in the area the previous company had repaired. The job took around 10 minutes.

I'll be using Carnies again in future. I found them friendly, informative, efficient and trust worthy. Highly recommended.

Carnies has done a lot of work into my car, first time was my track rod end. They fixed it straightaway at an affordable price. Second time I took my car to another garage and my car failed MOT, I was quoted £890 to fix it. After bringing it to Carnies, they checked it all over and turned out half the stuff didn’t need done! They fixed all the issues, and re MOTed it and it was less than £500. Fab, fast and reliable service. Will definitely be back.

We're else would I get a free sausage roll, a jam doughnut and cup of coffee while I wait??....yes checked my invoice and deffenetly not billed for them lol!.
Fantastic garage that will have you going back again and again. Very Friendly bunch, you even get included in the work place banter! Ha ha!
I own an older vehicle, and these guys are constantly sourcing parts for me, and patching the old girl up.
Keeping her road worthy.
What you see is what you get at this place, hard working knowledgeable guys, do a great job time and time again.
They've gone above and beyond on a couple of occasions for me, really helping me out.
Highly recommended.

First time I have used Carnie’s and will definitely be back! I was very impressed by the service I received today when I took my car in for its MOT. It was done quickly and efficiently and Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and advised me (in simple terms I could understand) what some of the ongoing ‘niggles’ I have with the car are, why they are happening and how they can be resolved.
Would highly recommend.

Very helpful replacing a trashed wing mirror. Their quote was almost 4 times cheaper than another. The colour match isn't perfect, but who cares when done quickly, efficiently and at such a competitive price.

Have used Carnies garage fore about 6 years now and never once have I thought that I was being “done” Kevin and his team are friendly, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Not knowing anything about cars I rely on them to diagnose and fix in the fairest and most economical way. They have always down this for me. Would recommend them for friendly local car services.
Keep up the good work. Cheers

I had my car mot'd and puncture repaired today. The service given and quality received meant I booked my next service without hesitation. Was good to see true mechanics working on cars and not just someone relying on a computer to tell them what's wrong. Thank you.

I took my car to the garage for its annual service and from start to finish the customer service received was spot on. From getting it booked in a couple weeks before, to turning up on the booked day. The service was completed quickly and efficiently with no hassle and any other factors that came up were clearly communicated to me and resolved. Would recommend Carnies for efficient service and good value for money too.
