At Big Sky Collision Center your car repairs are performed using industry-leading technology like our Car-O-Liner frame measuring system for frame straightening. This technology, paired with expertise of our auto frame repair technicians, provides the precision to return your car to its factory specs (and sometimes even better). As always with Big Sky Collision Center, your repairs come with a lifetime warranty on our workmanship.
What is Unibody and Frame Repair (Frame Straightening)?
While some damage to your car or truck only occurs to the body of the vehicle, like hail damage for example, sometimes the damage is more extensive. If the inner frame of the car/truck is in need of repair (bent or crushed), then frame straightening is necessary to get your car or truck back in working order. This kind of damage happens in almost half of all accidents, so 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. These machines allow us to pull or push the frame to straighten it back to its original shape, depending on the amount of damage and the type of frame.

One thing we hear time after time from our customers is how surprised they are at the amount of damage to their vehicles, even after a low speed collision. However, there is 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, absorbing some of the impact’s energy from being transmitted to you and your passengers.
These crumple zones result in less fatalities to people, but they also mean more damage to vehicles in low speed collisions. Even if you don’t think your accident was severe enough to warrant frame repair, you should still request an estimate. There may be thousands of dollars worth of damage you are not aware of.
