A scuffed or dented bumper makes your car look ugly, but you may not have time to schedule an appointment with a body shop to have repairs done. If that's the case, consider mobile bumper repair. You can have your bumper repaired while your car is parked at home or at your office. The bumper repair technician brings all the tools and supplies needed to repair your bumper on the spot. Here's how mobile bumper repair works.
Repairs Save You From Replacing Your Bumper
No matter what type of damage your bumper has, you may want to have it checked by a mobile technician to see if repairs are possible because that would save you from having to buy a new bumper. Scuffs, scratches, holes, and dents can usually be repaired. If your bumper has severe damage, has part of it missing, or it's hanging loose, then a replacement might be needed instead.
If repairs are possible, the technician comes to the location you designate and will complete the repairs as quickly as possible so you can go about your routine with little downtime. When the work is complete, the damage is invisible and the repaired area blends in with the rest of the bumper since a computer matches the paint color to be an exact match.
Dents Can Be Pulled Out
All kinds of bumpers can be repaired. Metal, chrome, and plastic might be repaired in different ways, and the repair technician has the tools to fix them all. Dents can often be pulled out and returned to their original shape. This might be done with a suction device. Heat might be used to help reshape plastic. When the bumper has its original shape back, it may need more work to touch up the paint or fill in scratches.
Scratches And Scuffs Can Be Filled In
The mobile bumper repair technician can sand the bumper if needed to smooth scratches and scuffed areas. Scratches can also be filled in to eliminate the grooves formed by the scratches. When these areas are repaired, the bumper is smooth just like it was before the damage happened. The final step is to paint the repaired area so the bumper looks good as new.
Holes Can Be Filled
Small holes can be filled in by plugging the back of the hole and then putting filler in the front and smoothing the top of the hole. The repaired hole will probably need a little bit of touch-up paint to conceal it. Thanks to the ability of the computer to match paint, the new paint blends right in and it won't be noticeable.
