We have been going for more than 20 years and have had a great service. Totally reliable and trustworthy.


I’ve been going to Brakesafe for 8 years, including the last two years even though I have moved to 8 miles away. In that time I have never felt that their motives were anything other than completely open and honest.


I have been taking both of our cars to them for years, they are very good and honest. I am a motorcycle mechanic, and have a good knowledge of vehicles, and can honestly say that Brakesafe will do exactly what needs done, and not try to rip you off.


Been here a couple of times, and even though i live on the other side of Edinburgh I travel here. They deliver exceptional customer service and are very reasonably priced. Well recommended!


I have been to this small family-run garage twice now and they are always very helpful, will phone to give a quote once a diagnosis has been made and before carrying out any work (so no unexpected huge bills!) and the prices are very reasonable.
