If your car was involved in a rear-end collision, the chances are it resulted in a dented bumper. Today’s bumpers are very lightweight, making them easy to dent, even in a low-impact rear-end collision. While bumpers that haven’t suffered extensive damage can be repaired, the bumper will most likely need to be replaced if there’s heavy damage. If your vehicle has a damaged bumper and you live in Hayden, bumper repair is close by when you visit the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop in Post Falls. We’ll inspect your car’s bumper and decide whether it can be repaired or needs to be replaced.
When you bring your car, truck, SUV or van to the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop for bumper repair near Hayden, our technicians will assess the damage and check for cracks. While we’re able to pull out dents in the bumper, if there are cracks present, it will compromise the bumper’s structure, leaving the vehicle unprotected from future impacts. If the bumper is cracked, it will have to be replaced.
There are times when we can repair a bumper, but it’s cheaper to replace it. Minor dents aren’t expensive to repair, but large dents cost more to fix because we must fill them with a body compound, sand them, and repaint the bumper. It can be less expensive and faster to replace the bumper. Factors that determine the cost of a bumper repair include how badly the bumper is damaged, the location of the damage, the material the bumper is constructed from, and the condition of the paint.
It’s usually easy to source a replacement bumper for a late-model vehicle. If you drive an older model, the technician must weigh the cost of repairing the bumper against the difficulty of finding a replacement. If the manufacturer has ceased producing factory parts for the vehicle, it will be hard to find a replacement, in which case, repairing the bumper will be the only option.
