Repair services are often needed if a car’s body is damaged or dented. Skilled technicians can employ a variety of services to restore a car to its former look. In some cases, you can’t even tell there was damage to begin with. Anything from crushed fenders to dents to shattered windshields can be repaired. Some common repairs are as follows:
An automobile’s structure is incredibly important to its safety and usability. If a car or truck has damaged structural integrity, it can be a dangerous hazard. Checking for structural damage takes more than just “eyeballing” a vehicle for visible dents. The frame and alignment must be measured down to the millimeter to ensure the safety of passengers. If damage is found, repairs can be made by replacing damaged body parts or welding panel parts together.
Almost everyone has had the experience of having a rock or debris thrown into a windshield, leaving the tell-tale crack behind. Cracked windshields must be repaired right away because a crack can spread at any time and your view of the road is obstructed. Depending on the severity of the crack, your windshield may need to be replaced. Minor chips can often be repaired without replacing the original window.
Paint-less Dent Removal
In some dents and dings, the paint remains unscathed. In these cases, dings may be repaired and leave the original paint job, saving the vehicle owner considerable expense. Paint-less dent removal involves working from the inside out until the dent is so small–not notable on the car– or in some cases, has disappeared completely.
Often, people only look at the outside of a car for damage after a collision; however, the most dangerous damage may not be visible to the owner. A car’s frame can be bent in even low-impact accidents, so it’s important to have it checked before getting back behind the wheel.
