Common Questions about Frame Repair


Common Questions about Frame RepairYour frame supports the weight of your vehicle's parts, including very heavy components like the engine, transmission, and body. When a frame is damaged, the vehicle becomes less safe to drive. Even if you were in a minor accident that didn't seem to do much harm, your frame still may have gotten damaged. If you think there's any chance that your frame has become compromised, then you'll want to bring your car to a reputable body shop for an inspection. At Moises Body & Paint, our experienced technicians are experts at identifying and repairing frame damage. Here are some of the frequently asked questions about frame repair.

What is frame repair?

To restore the frame as closely as possible to its original dimensions, extreme force is needed to push and pull the frame. We use a computerized frame repair machine that exerts immense force to reposition the frame to within centimeters of its factory specifications.

What are the risks of driving with a damaged frame?

If your frame is bent, you may notice your vehicle handling differently due to uneven weight distribution. But there are more serious risks that come with driving with a damaged frame. If your frame is bent or otherwise compromised, it may ultimately snap, which could lead to a serious accident. A misshapen frame can worsen your vehicle's structural integrity, making your car much less safe if you get in an accident at some point down the road.

Do all collisions cause frame damage?

Not every accident will cause frame damage, but even small accidents often do. It's estimated that about 50% of accidents result in some degree of frame damage.
