Structural Damage Repair After A Fender Bender

Structural damage is a kind of hidden damage that doesn’t necessarily show during a casual inspection. It’s also the kind of damage that can cause a vehicle to be unsafe. Structural damage is also reviewed if a door replacement is necessary. That makes it important to have seasoned professionals, like our team at Heritage Collision, inspect your vehicle after an accident. Structural damage, such as a damaged axle, can cause a number of problems, but it’s easily fixed in many cases. An axle that needs to be repaired to preserve your car’s structural integrity can:

  • Change the way your car feels when you drive.
  • Change the way your car handles when you navigate turns and curves in the road.
  • Cause unusual noises when you drive.
  • Impact the way your car responds when you accelerate or decelerate.

Our body repair services are focused on making your car look and handle like new. Our paintless dent repair service works by restoring the structural integrity of your vehicle’s damaged body panels and doors.
