Is Bumper Repair A Good Idea?

Fundamentally, you have 3 basic options: do nothing, replace it, and bumper repair.  Here is a quick look at what each of these options has to offer.

Do Nothing

If your bumper is damaged, the obvious benefit of doing nothing, is that you don’t have to pay for any repairs.  However, you lose much more than you actually save.  By doing nothing, there are several detrimental outcomes.  The first is that you devalue your vehicle.  If you are leasing it, there is good chance that you will have to pay to replace it once you turn it back into the dealership.  If you own it, your vehicle will carry a far lesser value when trading it in or selling it.  While it may only be cosmetic damage, it can be taken as a representation of how you treat your car in general.  It is also important that once damaged, the damage can quickly escalate and become much worse over time.

Replace Your Bumper

The only potential advantage of completely replacing your bumper is that you know that the damage has been taken car of.  However, there is a good chance that your new bumper is simply a recycled or salvaged bumper from another vehicle, so it is not actually new.  Replacing your entire bumper is also an extremely expensive process that can take days to complete, which means days without your vehicle.

Bumper Repair

Bumper repair offers a variety of advantages.  First, it is the most cost effective alternative.  It  is much cheaper than replacing it, but also preserves the value of your vehicle.  Additionally, there are many mobile repair units that will actually come to you and repair it.  This means that while you are at home or at work, they can come to wherever you are and take care of it for you.  Finally, repairing your bumper is much more environmentally friendly than replacing it.

When comparing all of your options, bumper repair is a clear winner.  It is the most cost-effective, will preserve the value of your vehicle, is environmentally friendly, and can be done without losing the ability to have your vehicle when you need it.
