Really good experience. Felt they were trustworthy straight away so I asked them to do more work whilst my car was in which they did the same day. Prices good with no hidden charges. 100% recommend and I will continue to use Kam in future.
What’s an absolute refreshing change to find a garage where the staff went beyond what one would expect for a simple service and MOT. This car is my sons 1st car, he lives away at university and is deep into study and exams so getting the car serviced and MOTd was high in his list of priorities!, in steps dad to sort out (& pay!) finding a trustworthy, reliable, sensibly priced service center from a 100 miles away isn’t easy, I have a motoring background so I’m aware of the usual ‘talk’ that customers often hear from garages and I didn’t want a ‘fast fit center service’ I wanted a proper garage to carry out a proper service! So, after scouting the internet and reading customer reviews I booked CAM and after a conversation decided they were the garage to use. Due to my sons situation (to young for a loan car) and CAMs distance from his home,Som from CAM offered, free of charge, (I’d already had the quote) to collect and drop of t he car on a day that suited my son. The communications with us were excellent, we were kept fully informed of progress and after the MOT told of the advisories and issues, given a quote and without any presssure asked if we’d like the work done. Very reasonable quote and the work was carried out promptly, again being kept informed of the progress. We were offered a free 6 nth check up on one of the advisory to ensure the problem wasn’t getting worse. The car was returned with all the paper work. I would highly recommend CAM to anyone seeking a ‘real’ garage. Best customer seeivice we’ve experienced for a very long time. Don’t look anywhere else!
I had all LUK clutch and seal in gearbox, changed all along with gear oil. VERY HAPPY ! with completed job. Pulling like a steam train again ! Thanks Lad's. will use again and recommend.
Fantastic service, would use again
I requested a quote I thought I had a problem with my cam belt. Not long after dropping my car off at KAM Servicing, they had diagnosed the problem (a valve) and called me to recommend a solution. The repairs were completed on time and when I picked up my car, the staff took me through what they had found and what they had done. I'm very happy with the work and the friendly nature of the staff.
Raj, from KAM motors was very helpful on day and actually went the Extra mile !! He resolved my locked radio which very much appreciated. Also noted the screen wash was topped and they also realigned the wheels on the car with no extra cost. Well done KAM Heanor Team ... I would like my car to be service locally :)
Everything was fine

A very good service!
Looks as good as new, good work. Would go back again if I ever needed repairs
Good price and competent job done
I was amazed with how well my car turned out, genuinely looked like the dents and scratches were never there! It was definitely a fair price considering the damage to my car. All those at the garage were lovely and very helpful, and the courtesy car was a nice addition since I don’t live all that close to the garage. All in all great service, thanks!
Did an excellent job!
Very good service and friendly staff. Would use again, highly recommended. Price was very reasonable. Was higher than original price as ended up having to get another 2 parts.
Very good customer service and I received a telephone call to advise me when my car was ready. I have taken a business card and will definitely use them again. Thank you Corey.

The majority of modern cars have air conditioning fitted as standard as it is vital for making the ride in a car comfortable for passengers.
An air conditioning system works by using refrigerant gas to push air through several components in the aircon system and then into your car.
Whether its freezing cold or boiling hot, it’s your air conditioning which makes driving in such conditions bearable, so it’s important to look after the system!
Surprisingly, over 10% of air-con gas escapes through the system each year. This means that the power of the system drops significantly over time. However, your air conditioning will not be checked during an MOT or service which is why it’s important that you make an effort to have it checked specifically.
Car manufacturers recommend that cars should have their air con recharged (Regassed) every two years.
Even if your car is new it should be something that you have checked as your cars performance could be significantly affected.
This is because the engine will have to work harder to produce cold air if there is an issue with the air conditioning meaning more fuel will be required to make the system work.
If the system has not been recharged in two years, the drop in engine performance will be noticeable.
As soon as you realise a drop in the power of your air con you should take the vehicle in for repair. If there is an unpleasant smell being emitted, this is another sign that the air con needs looking at.
The job of recharging air conditioning is not complex and will not take long.
The mechanic will carry out a leaks check on the air con system before the repair work, to ensure the job can be carried out without causing damage to the car.
As soon as this is complete, the technician will be able to recharge the system.
The mechanic carrying out the work will first remove old refrigerant from your car as well as the current gas and lubricant.
They will then replace it with new gas and lubricants.
The job will also typically include an entire system clean out which is carried out to remove any bacterial build up.
This is often the reason for a strange or unpleasant smell being emitted from the air conditioning which is why it is important to have this job completed every two years.
The whole process should take around 45 minutes as there are no new parts required for install.
The air conditioning in your car should be noticeably improved after a regas if you haven’t had one for over two years.
If you want to ensure your air conditioning stays in tip top condition, make sure to use it regularly as this the compressor will stay lubricated.Finding a mechanic you can trust to do a good job and charge a fair price, is not always easy, which is why we simplified the process.
