What do you do if your mechanic says your frame is bent unsafe to drive and irreparable but the insurance company disagrees?
With more detailed information I could be of more assistance to you. It really depends, back in the 'old days' when I started, you just couldn't do a lot of frame repair, that… isn't so today. And we routinely repair frames. Just because a 'frame is bent' doesn't mean that it cannot be repaired, replaced, partially replaced to preloss condition. It is a rare occurance when a frame is not repairable and must be replaced. I have though replaced frames, but again this is not frequent at all, and typcially this would be on a vehicle that is of high value. (I am speaking here of 'conventional or laddler type' frames not unibody) . What kind of repair equipment does the shop have that has given this opinion? Are they even set up properly to do frame repairs? Some shops will say things must be replaced simply because they do not have the equipment or expertise to complete the repair. What does the adjuster say it needs to put it in preloss condition? If you could tell me the year make model where the damage is etc, what repair the adjuster says needs to be done, and what the shop says, I could be of more assistance to you. (MORE)
