  • What is frame damage?

    The metal frame can be damaged in several ways. In a collision it may bend or crack. Each of these can be detrimental to the way the vehicle will handle following the accident. A bent frame or cracked frame is also at risk of snapping in two, which is extremely dangerous.

  • Will every accident cause frame damage?

    Recent studies show that frame damage occurs in as many as half of all accidents on US roadways. While low speed impacts likely won’t cause a shift in the frame, even moderate speeds can cause some damage.

  • How can frame damage affect my car?

    If the frame is bent it will result in the vehicle being unable to travel straight down the road. These hectic control issues will likely lead to another accident if the vehicle is not properly repaired by expert collision technicians.

  • How is frame repair conducted?

    Frame straightening and repair is completed by using a specially designed, computer assisted machine that utilizes upwards of 20,000 pounds of hydraulic force to pull and ram the frame into its proper specifications. These machines have extreme accuracy, restoring the frame to within 1 millimeter of the original dimensions.
