If your car’s bumper has been damaged in an accident or is a victim of age – cracking, missing material – now may be the time to let our Odenton auto body fix or repair that bumper for you. As a family owned and operated business since 1993 our shop has become a trusted partner for many of your auto body needs. If your vehicle’s bumper has lights, cameras, or any type of sensor and any of these are damaged, they must all be considered during the repair process. Newer technology bumpers are typically made of plastic, with a reinforcement piece made of steel, aluminum, fiberglass or more sturdy plastic, these are additional things to consider when a bumper is replaced or repaired. Trust our Odenton auto body shop to consider all these facets of your bumper when you bring your car into us for your repair needs. Your car’s bumper is your first line of defense in an accident, make sure it’s fixed the right way, so you that you can feel safer while driving. If you have been involved in an accident and your bumper appears damage free, it is still important to have a professional inspect your bumper – there could be hidden damage; removing the bumper for inspection provides the information required to assess the full extent of any possible damage. NOT repairing or replacing a bumper when warranted could increase the extent of damage to your vehicle if it’s involved in a crash in the future. A damaged bumper cannot correctly absorb the impact of a crash, its functionality is reduced, putting the driver and passengers at risk. Finally, having a damaged bumper, whether through accident or age, decreases the value of your car. If you plan on selling or trading in your vehicle for a new one, having a fully-functioning, sharp looking bumper will increase the amount of money you can ask during the sale or trade. Our Odenton auto body shop can help get your bumper back to meeting like-new performance requirements and looks.
