More often than not, we hear from customers asking how our frame straightening process works, and particularly, whether or not they need it for their vehicle. To assist in answering some of our customer’s questions, we wanted to provide insight into how our auto body frame straightening process works and why it’s so important to the repair of your car or truck.
Can You Explain Frame Straightening?
While most damage to your car or truck mainly occurs to the body of the vehicle, for example, hail damage. Sometimes, the damage is a little more considerable. If the inside frame of the vehicle is in need of repair, frame straightening will be necessary to get your vehicle safe and back in functioning order. This sort of damage happens in almost half of all vehicle accidents, making frame straightening machines a necessary piece of equipment in body shops.
Our auto body frame machine is used to restore the frame to its OEM shape using torque and hydraulics that humans are unable to do. This machine allows us to push or pull the vehicle frame to straighten it back to its original shape, depending on the extent of damage and the type of frame.
At T&S Body Works, your car repairs are not only performed using these frame straightening machines, but we take it one step further with industry-leading technology like our laser measuring system. This technology is combined with the expertise of our auto repair technicians, providing the precision to return your car to its factory specs or better.
Do I Need my Frame Straightened?
Time after time, one thing we hear from our customers is how amazed they are at the amount of damage to their vehicles, even after a collision taken at a low speed. There is a very good reason for this.
A considerable innovation to vehicle safety in the last 10 to 20 years is the crumple zone. Crumple zones are certain areas of a vehicle that are designed to crumple and crush in a collision. These areas take in some of the accident’s energy from being transmitted to you and your passengers.
These crumple zones result in fewer fatalities to people, but they also mean more damage to vehicles in slow speed collisions. You may even think your accident wasn’t severe enough to warrant a repair, you should still ask for an estimate. There may be hundreds to thousands of dollars worth of damage you may not be aware of.
After a car accident it’s not uncommon to wonder if your car will ever be the same. If you’ve recently been in an accident, even if it is a low speed one, call us today or request a repair estimate online. We have the technology and the expertise to get your vehicle back in working condition. As always at T&S Body Works, our paint and workmanship comes with a lifetime warranty.
