How do I fix a bent car frame?

What’s the best way for me to straighten a bent car frame? Someone hit my car while I was in a grocery store and bent my frame out of shape. My door won’t even close properly!

I’m so sorry to hear about your accident, thank goodness you weren’t in the car!
While you can fix a bent car frame by pushing everything back into shape, you’ll need precise tools and expert-level knowledge in mechanical repairs. That being said, you should never repair a bent frame on your own.
Improper repairs can be dangerous and actually compromise your ability to drive! While professional repairs can be expensive, your provider will cover the damages if they resulted from a collision.
All you need to do is file a car insurance claim explaining the situation, and let your provider assess the damages. Once they determine the cost of repairs, they’ll write you a check!
If your car insurance company is uncooperative, consider exploring your other options with Jerry.

When you find a better plan, Jerry can help you buy your new coverage and even help cancel your old policy!
