Canada mandates structural integrity testing:
- For any vehicle you import into Canada.
- To obtain a “rebuilt” status on your vehicle after an accident.
Your vehicle was designed with safety in mind. The vital parts of your vehicle that were designed to bear weight and withstand stress comprise the structural integrity of your vehicle.
Frames, hoods, fenders, radiator support, rocker panels, engine compartment side rails, windshields, side glass, doors and other critical parts help your vehicle maintain its structural integrity in a collision.
Learn more about body structural integrity from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Parts
Our structural integrity inspections assure that your vehicle is restored with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts. After a collision, the use of OEM parts allows your vehicle to look, feel, and function according to its original design. OEM parts help preserve the value of your vehicle, not to mention preserve your new-vehicle warranty if you have one.
Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR)
During our structural integrity inspections, we follow the high standards set by the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR), an international nonprofit which educates and informs key members of the auto collision industry with current, unbiased information. When we inspect your vehicle for structural integrity, we ensure that your vehicle meets/exceeds all I-CAR standards.
