What constitutes a collision? The dictionary simply tells you that it is the act of colliding. This in turn is defined as to hit or crash into something. For motor vehicles, the collision can be between two moving vehicles (or one moving vehicle hitting something else that is moving on the road – like an animal for example) or it can be one moving vehicle hitting a stationary something. Even a supermarket shopping trolley being pushed into your parked car could be said to be a collision. The word brings thoughts of horrific crashes between speeding vehicles but many collisions can be far less dramatic, even mundane. But, they are all going to need Collision Repair In Corvallis OR to some degree or another. This applies even when the damaged vehicle was stationary at the time and something collided with it.
With many motor vehicles (even private cars) weighing it at over a ton, you might think that they are pretty solid. The truth is that, on their outside, they are not. The body shell can be made of relatively thin metal or various plastic materials (including fiberglass) and it is surprising how little force is needed to push in or dent the metal and/or break the plastic bodywork on any type of vehicle.
Once a vehicle has been in a collision, and has been driven or towed to a bodyshop for Collision Repair Corvallis OR, the first requirement is to assess the damage sustained. In some cases, the chassis may have been bent or the engine may have been pushed out of position. Correcting such major damage might well be beyond the abilities of an average bodyshop carrying out Collision Repair In Corvallis OR. Additionally, someone has to assess whether the vehicles safety has been so compromised as to make it unsafe to repair the damage.
Assuming that the vehicle has not suffered any major structural damage, all dented metal work will either have to be hammered back (or hydraulically forced back) to its original shape and position. If this is not possible, it will have to be removed from the vehicle and replaced. Replacement is usually the only way to repair broken plastic parts.
