Vehicle salvage repairs – safety is everything – then looking good.
Vehicle salvage repairs are becoming more common these days as insurance companies are writing vehicles off to eliminate car hire charges, as a result vehicle salvage repairs are on the rise and the need for professional vehicle salvage repairers is increasing. It is easy to get yourself a nice piece of motor salvage from websites like, Blue Cycle or even Ebay but bear in mind that vehicle salvage repairs should be done in a fully equip accident repair shop.
There are all sorts of reasons why a vehicle gets written off and there are varying degrees of damage, from mainly cosmetic bolt on panels right through to vehicles that are substantially damaged and need jigging. So having a jig is really important as the vehicle salvage will definitely need pulling and measuring correctly to ensure it will be safe to drive and handle the way it should. Failure to measure a car will not only make it look wrong and like it has been repaired but it will not handle on the road and could be fatal at high speeds.
