Reasons To Choose A Mobile Bumper Repair Service Over A Traditional Repair Shop

Stanley Garcia

The role of a car bumper is to absorb impact in a low-speed collision and protect the vehicle's body from damage. Therefore, if your bumper is damaged after a collision or minor accident, you should repair it immediately to protect the vehicle's body. There are two bumper repair methods to consider: mobile and traditional repair. Mobile repair is where a technician comes to your location to fix your bumper. With a traditional repair service, you have to drive your car to the auto shop. Here are three benefits of using a mobile service over a repair shop. 

Convenient Repairs

A mobile service is fast and convenient, as the repairs are done at your location. You only need to schedule an assessment with the car service. The technician will come to your location, assess the bumper damage, and provide a quote. If the damage is minor, the technician may be able to inspect and repair the vehicle on the same day. A traditional repair service requires you to drive the vehicle to the shop. If the bumper is severely damaged, you must tow the car, which will cost you a lot of money. 

Paintless Dent Repair 

Mobile bumper repair technicians primarily use paintless dent repair to fix minor scratches and dings caused by hail, flying objects, shopping carts, and low-impact collisions. This repair method is non-invasive, as it doesn't require sanding, filling, or repainting the bumper. It preserves the original paint on the bumper and saves money on a costly bumper repair job. 

Where the damage is severe, mobile technicians use the techniques below to restore the bumper. 

  • Plastic welding: This technique involves welding the bumper plastic together, and it is commonly applied where the bumper is cracked or split after a collision.
  • Scratch and chip repair: This repair method uses specialized paint to fill in scratches and minor chips on the bumper and restore the paint finish.
  • Traditional auto body repair: Traditional repair is an intensive process that involves filling, sanding, and repainting the bumper. It is used to repair severe damage after a collision.
  • Bumper alignment: This involves adjusting the brackets and fasteners that hold the bumper in place to align it with the rest of the body. 

All the above repairs can be completed at a repair shop as well. However, a mobile service offers greater convenience and peace of mind, as you don't need to leave the vehicle in a shop. 

Flexible and Customized Services

Mobile bumper repair technicians offer flexible and customized services. They provide same-day, evening, weekend, and holiday services. Therefore, you can schedule repairs at your preferred time. The technician can even come to your location over multiple days, depending on the amount of work required to restore the bumper.

Understanding Automotive Paint Products

Hello, my name is Bernie Ainsworth. I am intrigued with all of the different types of paint available for vehicles today. When I was growing up, vehicles only featured normal gloss, metallic or candy tones. Today, you can find color change paints and opalescent finishes that make the car look amazing. Furthermore, you can find paints made from plastic materials that peel back off without damaging the original finish. If you want a new paint job on your vehicle, it doesn't take a whole lot to change its color. However, you may still want to go to the shop if you want a professional finish. I will discuss the best way to decide between a do it yourself project or professional touch. I hope you will find my information useful. Thanks for visiting.
