How much does a bumper on a car weigh?

I know there are different types of bumpers, but I’d like to know the weight. I’m considering transporting one myself to fix up a car. How much does a bumper weigh?

Answer
A great question to ask! There are different types of car bumpers, including plastic and metal, which have vastly different weights.
Most plastic bumpers weigh around 30 pounds, while steel bumpers on trucks can weigh as much as 300 pounds or more. To prevent injury, you may want to consider asking a friend to help you lift your bumper if it’s steel.
If you are worried, you can always see if a repair shop can order and install the bumper for you. That way, if it’s heavy, you don’t risk throwing out your back or injuring yourself!
Once you fix up the car, make sure you have the proper car insurance on it to protect all your hard work! The Jerry app generates free quotes from over 50 of the nation’s leading providers in seconds, so you can find cheap car insurance at a great rate.
