    Default Coachworks....do they do the lot?

    Good Evening punters,

    My daughter has managed to mangle her car against a kerb, pushing the wheel back against the wing etc, so suspension is done, track rod, wishbones etc..but the body work is ok.

    She is only 3rd party so is coughing up, my question is, do "Coachworks" do the lot, ie fix the suspension, geometry etc as well as paint jobs?

    Any info appreciated

    Regards
    Carlton

    its a generic term for accident repair centres, they are referred to as coachworks, obviously you do not know the answer and hopefully you will never need them.
    I trust you are enlightened now, have a look on Google and you will get an idea.

    If there's no body damage, why would it need to go to a bady-shop (coachworks?) in the first place. When I did the same to my old cavalier it went straight to masterfit (vauxhall, wouldn't want you to have to google it).

    & I agee with thegoldenbullet why the harsh comment, The Coachworks could easily be a company name

    It was a bit - and a bit unnecessary. Given what you asked....

    ...I'm assuming Maverick thought you were asking about a company called Coachworks.

    In reply to your question - yes, most accident repair centres will also deal with suspension, and often chassis stuff (some will have jigs for checking chassis alignment) but it depends on the individual place, some may just do body repairs.

    True - good point.
