What is Unibody and Frame Repair (Frame Straightening)?
Some vehicle damage, like hail damage, only affects the body. Sometimes, however, the damage is more expensive. What happens if the inner frame of your vehicle has been bent or crushed? If that’s the case, then frame straightening may be necessary. If you want to make your vehicle safe to drive again, our team members can help. Keep in mind that this sort of damage happens in nearly one-half of all accidents. That’s why frame machines like our Car-O Liner are an important piece of equipment in body shops.
Our auto body frame machine is used to restore the frame to its original shape using hydraulics and torque that humans simply can’t do. In other words, these machines allow us to pull or push the frame to straighten it back to its original shape.

One thing we frequently hear from our customers is how surprised they are at the amount of damage to their vehicles, even after a collision. However, there’s a good reason for this.
A key innovation to auto safety in the last few decades is the crumple zone. Crumple zones are areas of a vehicle that are designed to crumple and crush in a collision, thus absorbing some of the impact’s energy from being transmitted to you and your passengers.
These crumple zones result in fewer fatalities, but they also mean more damage to vehicles. Even if you don’t think your accident was severe enough to warrant frame repair, you should still request an estimate. After all, there may be thousands of dollars worth of damage you are not aware of.
