Rear-end collisions are a common cause of dented bumpers. Modern bumpers are very lightweight, so they’re easily dented, even if the car has been in a low-impact collision. Bumpers that aren’t heavily damaged can be repaired, but the bumper may need to be replaced if the damage is extensive. If you live or work in Rathdrum, bumper repair is nearby when you bring your vehicle to the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop. We’ll examine the bumper carefully and determine whether it can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced.
When you take your vehicle to the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop for bumper repair in Rathdrum, our expert technicians will inspect the damage and check it for cracks. We can pull out dents in the bumper, but if any cracks are present, the structure of the part will be compromised. A cracked bumper won’t be able protect the vehicle from impacts down the road. So, a bumper that’s cracked must be replaced.
Sometimes a bumper may be repairable, but it’s less expensive to replace it than to repair it. It’s not expensive to pull out a small dent from a bumper, but large dents are more costly to repair because they must be filled in with a body compound, sanded and repainted. In this case, it may be more cost-effective and quicker to simply replace the bumper. The criteria that will decide the cost of a bumper repair include the extent of the damage, the dent’s location, the type of material the bumper is made of, and the condition of the paint.
It’s not usually a problem to get a replacement bumper for a newer car, but if your vehicle is an older model, the technician must consider the difficulty of finding a replacement bumper for the vehicle. If factory parts are no longer being produced for the car, finding the right bumper will be challenging. If the technician believes it will be too difficult to source a bumper for the vehicle, repairing it will be the only option.
