When a car gets into an accident, all damages are devastating. However, If a car’s frame gets bent, it can either total your car or be a very costly repair. Depending on the make and model, some cars can be salvaged while others get sent to the junkyard.
No fixes are easy when it comes to auto body repair. Connerton residents should know that a bent car frame is not as much hard to fix as it is time consuming and expensive. The frame of a car is pretty important because it gives the automobile its structural integrity as well as its ability to drive. This part is so important because every part of the chassis attaches to the car frame.
Newer cars are more susceptible to frame damage in an automobile accident when compared to older cars because new cars are designed to have “crumple zones” in the frame.
Crumple zones are not designed to make car owners pay more money when they get into an accident; they are actually designed to help save your life! These crumple zones absorb and defuse more shock and vibrations than typical non crumple older car frames. Older non crumple zone vehicles kill more occupants in the cabin of the vehicle than newer crumble zone designs.
When dealing with frame damage auto body repair, Connerton residents would have to go to an auto body shop that has a precision-based frame straightening machine. These machines are optimized by lasers to measure the chassis of the vehicle and compare it with non damaged variations of your car’s make and model.
The way that these machines work for auto body repair, Connerton technicians use the machine to pull and mold the frame of your car back to the dimensions of the stock model of your car.
Once the car’s frame is back in its original position, it should be running smoothly unless there was another underlying problem.
