Not only is your car’s frame the main support that holds each component in place and makes your car drive straight, it’s also one of your vehicle’s most important safety features. In an accident, the frame is prone to damage, but that’s not a design flaw. The frame is made with crumple zones, areas that absorb the force of an impact and protect passengers from the worst of a collision!
After a collision, a car’s frame should be investigated to determine if it’s the shape it should be. Although you can sometimes drive a car with a bent or crumpled frame, its compromised structure means you’re not as safe if another collision were to happen. That’s why when frame damage is present, we’ll scrutinize and measure every inch and recommend next steps based on what we find. If minimal damage is present, a frame can sometimes be straightened out by pulling the frame into its original shape using laser precision. If only a section is compromised, it might be eligible for removal, replacement, and welding of new pieces. And sometimes a frame can’t be repaired at all because the car has been totaled and there is no way to return the frame to manufacturer’s specifications and safety standards.
