Body, chassis and frame

Body, Chassis, and Frame: Ensuring Vehicle Integrity and Safety

The body, chassis, and frame form the core structure of a vehicle. During a roadworthy inspection, Ausmec examiners pay close attention to these elements, prioritizing three crucial safety aspects:

  1. Operator Safety: A strong and undamaged body structure protects the driver or rider in the event of a collision, minimizing injuries. Additionally, a properly aligned chassis ensures optimal vehicle handling and control.
  2. Public Safety for Occupants: A structurally sound body and frame safeguard passengers during an accident, reducing the risk of intrusion by debris.
  3. Environmental Impact: Excessive corrosion or damage to the body could lead to leaks of fluids like oil or coolant, potentially harming the environment. Examiners ensure the vehicle meets environmental safety standards.

By meticulously examining these areas, Ausmec examiners guarantee the body, chassis, and frame contribute to a safe driving experience for everyone and minimize environmental impact.
