The Process of our Mobile Bumper & Scratch Repair Service

If there is one thing on the minds of Sydneysiders at the moment it’s cost of living. With inflation running rampant across the globe, it’s sending the price of daily essentials through the roof.

It’s little wonder that many savvy buyers are looking to avoid hip pocket pain and explore cheaper options when it comes to those unexpected costs that come around. And it doesn’t come much more expected than a car scratch or bumper dent.

After all – you don’t plan for an accident. But whether it happens because you clipped a kerb, scraped a pylon at a shopping centre car park or came back to find your car damaged after leaving it in a public place, you want it fixed.

It’s why some car owners will opt for a DIY repair to rectify the damage to their vehicle. And, while it makes sense in some circumstances, it’s not always the right option.

To help you decide, we explore the process of getting a mobile bumper and paint repair service, why it’s convenient and how long it typically takes, so you can be armed with the facts when it comes to your vehicle.

What is a mobile scratch and bumper repair?


As the name would suggest, a mobile scratch and bumper repair is a service that comes to your location to fix the damage on your car. Which means the main difference between a service like Bumpertek and a panel beater shop is convenience.

When you go to a panel beater, you will have to leave your car at the shop for them to address the damage to your car in due course. This process could mean you’re without your car for several days.

In the case of a mobile bumper technician, there is no such concern. Our fully-kitted vans allow us to perform bumper repairs at a place that is of your choosing – whether it’s your residence or workplace.

How long do repairs take?

The best part of a Bumpertek repair? You can be back to using your car fast as most of our repairs are completed on the same day!

Our trained expert will need to review and assess the damage before determining the exact length of time it will take to address a bumper or car scratch, as the timing will depend on the severity. That means, a deeper scratch will generally take longer to fix.

But generally most repairs are done in 2 – 2.5 hours. The drying time for the paint will generally take 3 hours after the repair is completed.

What does our repair process look like?

The repair process for most car scratches can be quite involved. But most of the time, it will include the following:

  • Preparation: To start, the car needs to be positioned in a well ventilated area, protected from dirt and dust which can damage the soon-to-be painted area. Once it is the right spot, we’ll clean the area of the scratch thoroughly.
  • Paint match: We’ll then match the new paint with the existing colour of the car. At Bumpertek, we use a professional paint match system to ensure your repair is as well blended as possible, ensuring a high-quality repair.
  • Repair: Next, we’ll get started on the repair. This is an involved process that has several steps including protecting the existing paint outside of the repair area, sanding the damaged spot, priming the surface, painting the area and leaving it to dry.

Each step is critically important to get right, in order to end up with a high-quality repair.
