If your vehicle is involved in an accident, you might be tempted to ignore dents as they are more cosmetic in nature. But the importance of auto frame straightening if it’s necessary cannot be overrated.
What the Auto Frame Does
Of course, the frame is part of the overall look of your car, but it has far more important purposes than that. It also:
- Keeps the integrity of the overall structure.
- Keeps your car’s weight from making it collapse on you.
Includes “Crumple Points”
Frames are manufactured with special points that will give way in an accident so that the car will not fall in on you. If the frame is damaged, then these crumple points may not function properly the next time you have a collision.
What Does Frame Repair Entail
A repair technician will go over the frame of your vehicle very carefully, using special technology to make sure that the integrity of your frame is still intact. If the damage is minor, it can be bent and realigned. If the damage is severe, the damaged part of the frame will be removed and new metal welded into place. In either case, the end result is that your safety will be uncompromised.
