You can count on us for an honest assessment about whether your vehicle’s framework can be successfully straightened.
Here at Reliable Collision & Painting, one of the misconceptions that we are often in the position to address is whether a vehicle has to be sent to the scrapyard once the framework is damaged. While not every damaged frame is salvageable, it might surprise you how often they can, in fact, be resolved so you don’t have to lose the car you love.
We have more than 26 years of experience with restoring vehicles, and framework repairs is one of our specialties. That experience is what allows us to properly diagnose whether a damaged frame is repairable or scrap metal.
One of the rules that we follow is only performing framework straightening when the frame has not been bent to the point where a kink has occurred. If we were to try to resolve a kink, there would be a visible crack when we attempted straightening and it would take an excessive amount of heat to even hope to get the frame straight again. In both cases, this would result in a structural shortcoming that would make the vehicle unsafe to drive on the Cary, North Carolina highways. Our goal is to save you money, but not at the risk of your safety. You can always count on our integrity to give you an accurate recommendation about the framework of your vehicle.
If your vehicle has been in an accident, you’ve been told the framework has been bent, and you’d like a second opinion, don’t hesitate to contact us. Feel free to call us with any questions you may have about frame straightening and whether that might be a feasible solution for your vehicle.
