S.A.M.S. (Specialised Autos and Motorcycle Services) was founded in September 1997, and currently operates from an acre site on the Heckington Industrail Estate, close to the Railway Station in Heckington, near Sleaford, Lincolnshire.

We believe some of the key elements to our success are:
Our experienced and dedicated team will always try to find the best solution to solve our customers’ particular problems and keep them informed of the progress.
We have the capability to perform almost any build or repair, to any vehicle, on-site in our workshops.
We are also able to accommodate off-site repairs where possible. Our workshops have extensive fabrication capability, and our close working relationships to several local specialist engineering and machine shops, allow us to create optimised individual solutions to difficult problems. We like to work in partnership with our customers to make sure we deliver what is really required.
Our contract maintenance customers are guaranteed a flexible, adaptable, and caring response to all their needs – a total care solution.
Although we like to sleep at nights, we realise that sometimes our customer’s needs have to be satisfied outside of normal working hours, so we really are a truly 24×7 business. Try us and see.
Very honest garage, always service with a smile. Been a customer for the last few years and nothings ever been a problem. Highly recommend.
First rate service and after-care. First garage I've been to in years which really can be bothered to 'go the extra mile'. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Had to call breakdown today and recovery truck from SAMS attended. Had my two young grandchildren with me (thankfully not too far from home when car broke down) the gentleman was absolutely brilliant. My car taken to garage of choice and we were dropped off at home on way. Really cannot praise him enough. Thank you again.
Old school motor engineers....know their stuff. Very helpful and good prices too. MOTs, servicing, repairs. Tyres too now.
We broke down whilst pulling a caravan on our way to Spain on the A1, from the recovery to them finding out the problem ( working till midnight on a Sunday) and going a massive step further to running an extension lead to supply us with electric whilst we stayed in their compound on the Sunday night, we were on our travels Monday morning at 9am, and finished our journey to Spain. 100% professionals, amazing service and really nice people who went the extra mile to help. Thank you all at S.A.M.S.
Thank you SAMS for all your help today. My car had an electrical problem and lit up like a christmas tree. Even though it was late in the saturday afternoon, they still found time to help me. They were incredibly helpful from the moment I phoned to the instant I could drive away. They are very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. They understand cars very well and managed to fix my issue quick;y and efficiently and get me underway in no time at all.
