Have your car recently run-in with a curb? Or a parking garage? Or a snow bank? Or suffered simple parking lot damage caused by a runaway shopping cart?

We've all been there --hastily putting the car in reverse, failing to check the blind spot, and cringing at the crunch of bumper meeting barricade. The resulting dents used to mean a quick trip to the auto parts store for some cheap body filler and a can of spray paint, but plastic bumper parts require an entirely different arsenal of products. Instead of the old sheet metal bumper exteriors, modern cars hide your car's bumper under a plastic fascia, in hopes that minor abrasions might pop out more easily. But if your car meets the sharp edge of a 2-foot parking barrier, the semi-flexible plastic can easily rip, bend, or break.
Fortunately for your battered bumper, plastic repair and refinishing materials are widely available and reasonably inexpensive. Fixing damaged plastic bumpers involves grinding, sanding, sculpting, and painting, but it's worth the effort for repairs that could cost you less than your deductible.
The purpose of a bumper is to protect your vehicle in case of an accident. This prevents major damage to the main body of your car.
Therefore, bumper repair is just the matter of checking the type of damage inflicted on your bumper and making a decision as to whether it is best fixed as a repair job or as a general service to your vehicle. Most people tend to ignore bumper repair due to the obvious benefit of not having to pay anything. But not repairing it lowers the value of your car and creates a bad impression of the exterior look.
Note that bumper repair is more cost-effective than replacing it. At Arnie’s Collision Centre, we will try our best to fix your bumper by repairing it. Our professional technicians are always ready to help get you back on the road.
Also at one point, you will obviously find it important to sell your car. Note that the resale value of your car will be based on the condition of your car's engine, how old it is, and yes, how it's exterior looks like. Even with minor bumper damage, you could lose thousands of dollars, which you could easily have saved by repairing your bumper.
Whether your bumper is cracked or scratched, dented or completely broken, we can help you. Contact us for a free estimate or book your appointment to get an idea of how we can help.
