Body Repair with Car-O-Liner

Car-O-Liner is an auto body frame machine that we’ve been using at Mark’s for body repair for more than a decade. Using this frame and structural alignment system, we’re able to diagnose damage by taking very precise three-dimensional measurements and comparing them to factory specifications.

We’re able to know, with extreme precision, if part of the unibody is out of alignment. This makes it possible for us to return a damaged vehicle to the condition intended by the manufacturer. Car-O-Liner is just one more piece of innovative, state-of-the-art auto body repair equipment that allows Mark’s to deliver the highest quality repairs to our customers.

Diminished Value Assessments

Sometimes we perform “post repair inspections” for customers who are having problems with a vehicle that’s been fixed at another shop. The Car-O-Liner frame machine has allowed us to assess the safety and quality of those repairs.

Damage from the initial collision can then escalate into significant misalignments and operational deficiencies if the repair is done without sophisticated auto body equipment like Car-O-Liner. When auto frame straightening is done improperly, without precise measurements, the result is loss in value and problems with the safety of the vehicle.

“We refer vehicles for post-repair inspection to quality-minded repairers like Mark’s Body Shop, whose technicians use Car-O-Liner to make accurate 3 dimensional measurements of damaged vehicles. The precise measurements they make guarantee they will find any problems that could cause failures in the crash management system. This can prevent serious injuries in a subsequent collision, so it’s very important.

Auto Damage Experts, diminished value claims, what to do after a car accident“Trying to repair today’s unibody vehicles without a sophisticated measuring system such as Car-O-Liner would be like a doctor attempting to diagnose internal injuries without an X-Ray or MRI. This is the only way to do it properly” (Barrett Smith, Founder and CEO of Auto Damage Experts)
