THE CHIEF VELOCITY COMPUTERIZED MEASURING SYSTEM

We begin with Velocity So your Vehicle Ends up “as good as new”

The Chief Velocity computerized measuring system takes the guesswork out of repairing your vehicle and assures you of picture perfect results. Lasers precisely measure the damage to the frame or unibody of you vehicle. A computer report is then generated using factory specifications to show where the structure is damaged, right down to the millimetre. During and after repairs further measurements are made to ensure your vehicle is repaired exactly to factory specifications.

You Can’t Find This Equipment in JUST Any collision repair shop! West End Auto Body was the first collision repair shop in Chilliwack to use this precision computerized measuring equipment and continues to be the leader in advanced repair technology. Having the best equipment is part of our commitment to providing you with the best collision service possible!

THE PROOF IS IN THE PULLING

Our Chief Eze-liner frame rack can straighten the worst of accidents. Five pulling posts, all fully adjustable, allowing us to pull multiple directions simultaneously. Our exclusive simultaneous multiple pulling method means the collision is actually reversed for the most precise repair possible. Bent sections are straightened, dents disappear and your vehicle is as straight as before the accident. The proof is in the pulling, so when you need collision repair call us first.

An accident, even a minor one can affect your whole vehicle. And sometimes damage isn’t readily apparent to the eye. Using Velocity we’re able to detect all damage to the unibody or frame taking the guess work out of straightening your vehicle. This prevents insurance delays and gets you back on the road fast!
