Rear-end collisions are a common cause of dented bumpers. The bumpers used in today’s cars are very lightweight, making them easy to dent, even if the vehicle has been involved in a low-impact collision. If the bumper hasn’t been severely damaged, it can usually be repaired. However, if the damage is extensive, the bumper will likely need to be replaced. If your vehicle’s bumper is damaged in an accident and you live in Spokane Valley, bumper repair is quick and easy when you visit the professionals at the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop. We’ll scrutinize the bumper and establish whether it can be repaired or if it needs replacement.
When you bring your car to the Knudtsen Abra Body Shop for bumper repair in Spokane Valley, our skilled repair technicians will review the damage and look for cracks. Dents in the bumper can be pulled out, but the structural integrity will be compromised if the bumper is cracked. It can’t protect the car from further impacts and will need to be replaced.
In some cases, it might be possible to repair the bumper, but it may be more expensive to repair it than replace it. Pulling out a small dent from a bumper isn’t costly, but larger dents are more expensive to fix. They have to be filled in with a body compound, sanded and repainted. So, it may cost less and be faster to simply replace a badly damaged bumper. The factors that will determine the cost of a bumper repair job include how badly damaged it is, the location of the dent, the material the bumper is constructed from, and the condition of the vehicle’s paint.
In most cases, it’s not hard to source a replacement bumper. If you drive an older car, this can be more challenging because the manufacturer may no longer produce parts for the model. In that case, the repair technician must take the difficulty of finding a replacement bumper into consideration. If the technician decides finding the right bumper is too difficult, the only other option is to repair it.
