Frame Straightening

A vehicle’s frame is its backbone, and any damage to it can significantly impact the vehicle’s performance. Our frame straightening service involves:

  • Using specialized equipment to apply pressure to your vehicle’s frame

  • Returning it to its original shape post-collision

  • Attaching chains to the frame

  • Using hydraulic tools to pull the frame back into shape

Once the basic shape is restored, additional work such as welding, shaping, and cutting may be done to meet safety requirements. By correcting any bends in the metal framework, frame straightening restores your vehicle’s structural form, ensuring it’s ready to hit the road with confidence.
