2010 Toyota Truck Going Through A Major Auto Body Repair

test

 

Our journey begins with this 2010 Toyota truck. The owner found us Online.  Manny, our lead estimator met with the owner of  this Toyota Truck, and after a quick visual inspection, frame damage was detected.  Frame damage is nearly impossible to fix, in most cases the entire frame has to be replaced.
