Our best advice for car paint and bumper repairs

If you’ve damaged or scratched your car or bumper your first thought is probably surprise or frustration. But your second thought is likely some variation of this one: “How can I get it fixed – quickly?”


After all, most of us don’t want to be driving around with a damaged vehicle – not only does it look unsightly but it can leave your car vulnerable to further issues down the track. But equally, most people don’t need to have their car’s paint repaired regularly – so when they do, they may not be sure how exactly to address it.

Luckily, this is our area of expertise! To help you understand what you should expect – and why a mobile repair option might be for you – Bumpertek is sharing our top three tips for getting a car paint or bumper repair.

Tip #1: Get a quote before you commit

If your car is sporting a nasty looking scratch or dent, you’ll likely feel pretty nervous about how much the repair is going to cost. But any reputable car scratch technician should be able to provide you with an estimate before they get started.

At Bumpertek, we ask our customers to provide photos of the damage so we can provide accurate assessments before you commit to using our services. A free, no-obligation quote means you can be confident in the cost of your repair before you get started.

Tip #2: It should be done in a matter of hours

One of the best things about a mobile repair – compared to going to a traditional bodywork shop – is that your repair should be quick. Most Bumpertek repairs can be completed in a matter of hours, compared to smash repairers where your car will be left at the shop for days.

Not only does this mean you won’t be without your car, but it allows you to get back to your routine with minimal disruption.

While the exact duration of any repair will be determined by the circumstances of your vehicle’s damage – the location, size and depth of any scratch – most repairs can be completed in a window of a few hours (not including time to allow the repair to set).

Tip #3: Get a clear idea of what you can expect from your repairer

Depending on the damage your car has sustained and the condition of your car, a perfectly invisible repair isn’t always possible. However, your repair technician should be able to provide you with an idea of what’s possible before you start and, in most cases, can bring your paint back to its original condition. At Bumpertek, our repairs are always high-quality, and our repair technicians can provide you with an assessment well before you commit to any work.

Once done, your repair will act the same as the rest of your paint – it won’t peel, chip or fade any quicker than the rest of your car’s exterior.

So there you have it – the top three tips we have if you’re looking at getting a mobile paint or bumper repair. If you’ve got damage to your car’s paint or bumper, get in touch with Bumpertek today to get your free, no-obligation quote.
