Posted: October 30, 2018

Car accidents happen, and we at Andy Mohr Collision Centers understand that better than most. Accidents vary in severity and can cause a unique set of damages to each vehicle involved. In the case of frame damage, you may ask yourself, “Can a bent frame on a car even be fixed?” Yes, it can, and you can count on us to repair it. 

Our auto repairs team will let drivers in the Plainfield, Indianapolis, Fishers, and Bloomington, IN, areas know about the ins and outs of frame damage and how it can be fixed correctly in this overview.  

Fixing the Bent Frame

Although auto frame damage may seem like a severe repair, our expert auto repair team has years of experience in framework, so you can trust they’ll work hard to fix your car’s bent frame. 

Upon first review of your vehicle, our team will inspect your vehicle and use our intelligent ultrasound equipment to help diagnose the extent of the damage. The high frequency sound waves help identify exactly where and to what degree the frame has been bent. 

Next, they’ll use a combination of our specialized framing machines to try to bend it back to the correct position. The computerized tools employed in this process work to restore your frame’s alignment to its pre-collision condition. 

Our paintless dent repair service is also here to help finish off the job and fix any smaller dents, creases, or dings that may need repair. 

No matter the severity of damage to your frame, our experienced body shop team and high-quality collision centers are here to help get you back on the road as quickly as possible.        

The Truth About Modern Cars

As a direct result of all the advanced safety regulations in the automotive industry that automakers must abide by, today’s cars are as safe as they’ve ever been.

The ideas on automotive safety in the 21st century have shifted to figure the more capable a car is of absorbing shock in certain areas and diverting that energy, the better off the passengers will be in their section of the car during a collision. 

Enter “crumple zones,” which are located in the front, rear, and sometimes sides of vehicles. They’re a structural safety feature that can absorb the energy from an impact during a collision using controlled deformation to rebuff the damage. 

This safety advancement has led to higher safety ratings for passengers, but the weaker area of the vehicle has also left it more susceptible to frame damage. 

Repairing frame damage is where we come into play to help fix your bent frame and get you back in the driver’s seat.
