Understanding the Importance of Frame Repair and How it Works
Making sure that your frame is fixed in the aftermath of a collision is the only way to ensure your ongoing safety. Frame repair is conducted using an auto frame repair machine. The vehicle is bolted down to the device using a series of clamps and chains. The machine uses hydraulics and torque to shimmy the frame back into place. Our technicians have total control over the mechanisms at play to ensure that your vehicle is repaired with the utmost precision.
Once the alignment is completed, our team will ensure that no other damages have been overlooked before sending you back out on the road.

Full-Service Auto Body Repair
Our certified technicians are adept at performing all types of auto body damage repair. We frequently work on vehicles with both unibody and body-on-frame structures—no matter what make or model of vehicle you own, you'll find the solution you need here.
Some examples of the repairs we regularly execute in-shop include:
- Frame straightening
- Frame welding
- Dent and scratch removal
- Auto body painting
- Panel repair
- And more
In many cases, we restore vehicles to pre-loss condition. Consider us your one-stop-shop for factory-specific frame repair.
If your vehicle has been in a collision, the frame may have been warped and incurred significant damage. This can cause your vehicle to become unsafe to drive and will require immediate repair. Frame straightening is the best solution to restore your frame to its original condition. Frame straightening is a relatively simple procedure if the appropriate equipment is used. It involves using a great deal of force to bend the metal back into its initial form. This needs to be done by licensed technicians who have access to computerized tools that determine the most accurate and detailed alignment. They also have the capability to assess the degree of warping that took place, which helps them straighten your frame and ensure your vehicle’s safety.
Depending on the degree to which a frame is warped, the service it requires will differ. If our technician assesses your vehicle’s body and determines the damage is too severe to repair using the frame straightening method, they may suggest a frame welding service. This method involves welding cracked or damaged parts of the frame into newly restored pieces. If the welding is done correctly, the frame will have the same reliable integrity as an undamaged vehicle.
Dent and Scratch Removal
When your vehicle's frame is damaged, it will likely endure scratches and dents. If the scratches are minor, the only repairs that need to be done are quick paint touch-ups. A technician will use your vehicle's VIN to match the paint color as precisely as possible. They may also suggest airbrushing the scratch if they feel it's the better option.
Keep in mind that touch-up paint and airbrushing are only temporary solutions, and the paint will likely begin to chip within two years. As the vehicle owner, you may want to choose a full-repair paint service for a permanent solution that involves sanding, priming, filling, and repainting. Regardless of what our technician recommends as the most suitable option, they will explain to you the pros and cons of each method and leave the decision entirely up to you.
When your vehicle panel is damaged due to a collision, you’ll have the option to repair it rather than replace it if the damages aren’t too extensive. The repair method varies based on the degree of the damage. If there are scratches but no dents to the panel, a sufficient repair method would be to sand it down and then repaint it while the panel is still attached to the vehicle. If the scratches to the metal are deep and it has received significant dents, the most appropriate repair method would be to remove the panel entirely and reshape it to its original form. Once it's reshaped, the scratched paint will be sanded down and repainted before the panel is placed back on the vehicle. In either case, the technician will go over the options with you and allow you to choose what works for you based on the value of your vehicle and your budget.
TYPES OF FRAME DAMAGE WE REPAIR
If you’ve been in an automobile accident, there are many ways that your frame could’ve been damaged. The frame is an essential part of your vehicle’s integrity, offering stability, security, and weight support. When your vehicle's frame becomes damaged, even slightly, it becomes riskier to drive it.
Certain types of frame damage are especially dangerous for your vehicle. All these types of damage are important to fix and not impossible to repair. If you’ve been in an accident, you need a mechanic who can identify and fix the following damages:
If you’ve been in an auto collision, even a small one, there’s a chance that the impact will have bent or twisted your frame. Damage like this can be hard to spot because it’s often subtle, but it does leave some signs, including:
- Uneven tire wear
- Car out of alignment
- Uneven shock and suspension wear
- Unusual noises, such as creaking or squeaking when driving
We can find where your frame is twisted and have the tools to put it back into place.
If you’ve experienced a collision that directly impacts the front or rear of your vehicle, your frame could have suffered mash damage. Like an accordion, a frame will crumple in on itself when impacted. This helps keep you safe in a collision but will cause a rippling effect of damage to the body.
Existing mash damage means your vehicle isn’t safe to drive and will often cause significant wear and damage to the rest of the car. You need to get any mash damage fixed as quickly as possible. We offer full-service mash repair and frame replacements to even out your body and ensure it’s safe to drive again.
If your vehicle has been hit in the corner, the frame may now lean in a certain direction. This is called sway damage. Sway damage means your whole vehicle will be pulled out of alignment, and you won’t be able to drive it in a straight line. To avoid further damage to your transmission and tires, and to improve your safety behind the wheel, bring the vehicle to our shop for a sway damage repair job.
Invisible Frame Damage
After minor collisions, your vehicle may look in good shape. However, we highly recommend that you book a professional inspection, regardless of your car's outer appearance, as even low-impact accidents can cause misalignments that are invisible to the naked eye.
At our auto body garage, we boast specialized technology and equipment to analyze all components of a vehicle's frame. Using our high-performance machinery, we can pinpoint these invisible safety hazards, such as:
- Gaps in-between body panels
- Alignment issues
- Crooked frame
A car is so much more than meets the eye. If you've been in a fender bender or another small-scale accident, don't take a chance—call in the experts for a professional inspection.
Insurance Claim Assistance
We are pleased to announce that our shop is an accredited repair facility, authorized to work with most major insurance companies. Our administrative staff is a wealth of knowledge and can help you navigate every aspect of the claims process from start to finish.
How Is Auto Frame Repair Completed?
Your car's frame can be damaged in a variety of ways. Twisted, mashed, or swayed frames can be fixed using specialized machinery that uses hydraulic force and torque to straighten the bent and misaligned areas of the frame carefully. If certain parts of the frame are deemed unrepairable, we can remove and replace them entirely.
There are many ways to repair your frame. It's crucial for the safety of you and your passengers that you do so as soon as a problem is suspected.
Our expert team uses only the industry's finest machinery when handling your frame repair, and you can trust us for comprehensive, reliable results.
