Chassis Straightening


At Hugos we care about our customers and put our clients’ safety first. That is why we use the latest digital chassis straightening equipment to ensure that when your car is returned to you, its chassis is in exact factory condition so that you are once again safe on the roads.

Technology and expertise

Because makes and manufacturers’ vehicles all have different specifications, and a misalignment of a few millimeters can have dangerous consequences, chassis alignment is a serious matter and not something to leave to amateurs. We get information grids directly from each vehicle manufacturer so that our chassis straightening and balancing is in line with manufacturer’s guidelines for ultimate safety.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most factory finishes now utilise multiple coats of specialised paints. However, with the appropriate information from the car factory and a computerised paint mixing system, it is possible to ensure every replacement panel installed by a panel beater is capable of matching the previous paint job perfectly.

The car is not a write off if the repairs exceeds the value of the vehicle. You might need to check with your insurance company; depending on the cost of the repairs, but more than likely, general frame damage is not going to mean your car is totaled. It is also possible with today’s modern vehicles, to return the car back to its pre-accident condition. Even if the frame section is bent seemingly beyond repair, it is possible to just replace it without the car being a complete write off.

The repair time does vary, depending on the panel beater and the amount of damage sustained to your car. You are going to receive an estimate before dropping off the car, so you know how much time to expect it to be in the shop. Of course, it is necessary to remember this is only an estimate. It is possible for the repair to take longer, should additional damage be detected. You should always be notified of any additional issues located on the vehicle, so you can plan accordingly. After all, you need to know when to return a rental car and for how long to keep a replacement vehicle, should you have one.

You will be notified by the panel beater when your vehicle is done and ready to be picked up. You are free to call the panel repair shop for updates on what is going on and for any questions or concerns you might have. If you are unable to pick up the vehicle when it is finished, you are more than welcome to stop by the following day. This way, you can inspect the vehicle in the sunlight and make sure the panel installation is performed correctly and everything is back to pre-accident condition.

If you have an insurance excess to pay, it is up to you to pay the panel repair shop. Generally, you pay the the deductible when you pick up the vehicle. Your insurance handles the rest of the work, although you might need to contact them to make sure you know what the excess amount is.
