Most rear-end accidents will damage your vehicle’s bumper. Because modern bumpers are so lightweight, it doesn’t take much for the bumper to get a large dent. Sometimes, a dented bumper can be repaired, but it will need to be replaced if the damage is extensive. We’ll go over how the Post Falls bumper repair experts at the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop decide whether a damaged bumper must be repaired or replaced.
When you take your vehicle to the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop for bumper repair in Post Falls, our team will inspect the damage, checking for cracks. We can pull out dents, but a cracked bumper must be replaced, because cracks weaken the structure, leaving the bumper unable to provide the proper level of protection in the future.
Another important factor that our team will take into consideration is the cost of fixing the bumper compared with the price of a replacement. It’s easy and inexpensive to pull out a small dent from a bumper, but large dents must be filled in with body compound, sanded and painted. This process can be expensive. Replacing the bumper with a new one can be faster and less expensive than repairing it. Other things that will affect the price of repairing a bumper include the material the bumper is manufactured from, the location of the damage, the extent of the damage, and the condition of the paint.
Finding a replacement bumper for a late-model car isn’t usually a problem. However, if you drive an older vehicle, our technician must weigh the difficulty of sourcing a replacement. If the manufacturer no longer produces factory parts for the model, it can be challenging to find the right bumper for the car. If the technician believes it will be too difficult to locate a replacement bumper for an older car,
repairing the bumper may be the only option.
