What Is Frame Straightening?
Frame straightening is the process of straightening your car, truck or SUV’s frame using a auto body frame machine. An auto body frame machine that uses line-of-sight lasers to access frame damage and diagnose if the vehicle is repairable, how long the repair should take and estimate how much the frame straightening costs.

How Does Your Frame Straightening Process Work?
While most damage to your car or truck mainly occurs to the body of the vehicle, for example, hail damage. Sometimes, the damage is a little more considerable. If the inside frame of the vehicle is in need of repair, frame straightening will be necessary to get your vehicle safe and back in functioning order. This sort of damage happens in almost half of all vehicle accidents, making frame straightening machines a necessary piece of equipment in body shops.
Our auto body frame machine is used to restore the frame to its OEM shape using torque and hydraulics that humans are unable to do. This machine allows us to push or pull the vehicle frame to straighten it back to its original shape, depending on the extent of damage and the type of frame.
At T&S Body Works, your car repairs are not only performed using these frame straightening machines, but we take it one step further with industry-leading technology like our laser measuring system. This technology is combined with the expertise of our auto repair technicians, providing the precision to return your car to its factory specs or better.
Do I Need My Frame Straightened?
Time after time, one thing we hear from our customers is how amazed they are at the amount of damage to their vehicles, even after a collision taken at a low speed. There is a very good reason for this.
A considerable innovation to vehicle safety in the last 10 to 20 years is the crumple zone. Crumple zones are certain areas of a vehicle that are designed to crumple and crush in a collision. These areas take in some of the accident’s energy from being transmitted to you and your passengers.
These crumple zones result in fewer fatalities to people, but they also mean more damage to vehicles in slow speed collisions. You may even think your accident wasn’t severe enough to warrant a repair, you should still ask for an estimate. There may be hundreds to thousands of dollars worth of damage you may not be aware of.
After a car accident it’s not uncommon to wonder if your car will ever be the same. If you’ve recently been in an accident, even if it is a low speed one, call us today or request a repair estimate online. We have the technology and the expertise to get your vehicle back in working condition. As always at T&S Body Works, our paint and workmanship comes with a lifetime warranty.
How Much Does Frame Straightening Cost?
The average cost of frame straightening for a car or truck depends on how bad the damage is and how many hours it will take to straighten the frame but the average cost of frame straightening per hour is around $100 an hour. It usually takes around 8 hours or less to straighten a frame depending on the damage putting the avg cost of frame straightening around $800. *These frame strightening costs are estimated by users on a forum and are not T&B Body’s advertised prices; for a real estimate contact T&S Body Works.
Frame Straightening Quotes In Tempe or The Phoenix Valley
Professional, quick, quality service! So glad my insurance recommended them.
Very professional and do great work. Always helpful and informative. Also have exceptional glass replacement.
The below review about this shop being scammers is totally uncalled for. Yes, T&S is expensive. The reason… their work is as good as it gets and they pride themselves and perform outstanding work. You can go elsewhere and get your vehicle fixed cheaper, but in the end, you get what you pay for. If you want cheap, go to the cheap shops. if you want perfection and the best, go to the best and that’s what you pay for.
Craig is always helpful and works with you to get you back on the road with fewer headaches. Thanks T&S for many years of great work.
As a car guy, I’m extremely particular about my car. T&S did an excellent job of repairing my car, the craftsmanship that went into my car is second to none.
As a small business owner it is always a delight to have great service. The technician, Marshall, even replaced parts that were left out on a previous repair without being asked. Nancy, the manager, was very helpful as well. I would highly recommend this company for any glass needs.
Best in the Valley.
Great Customer Service and honest appraisals.
I can’t recommend T&S enough – top notch work, great people, a pleasure to work with!
Today we had Jesse Sorensen come and replace one of our employees windshield. When he entered our office he noticed the broken glass in our parking lot and inquired about it. I told him we had one of our company vehicle window replaced. He offered to not only clean up the broken window mess in our parking lot, but go the extra mile, and pop off the door panel to vacuum inside too! What an excellent example of customer service and it wasn’t his company that left the mess! Very impressive!!
