Oh no! Accidents can be scary, and they’re certainly made worse when severe damages occur to your vehicle.
While minor scratches and dents can be repaired, deep cracks, holes, and detached bumpers will require a replacement. New bumpers can vary greatly in cost and range anywhere from $100 to $1000, depending on a number of factors:
  • Where you live
  • The severity of damages
  • Labor costs at local body repair shops: Ranging from $50 to $215 per hour, labor rates will depend on the skill level of technicians, the type of repair shop, and the facility overhead
  • The make and model of your car: Bumpers for trucks, SUVs, and luxury vehicles will be more pricey to replace
  • Using insurance vs paying out of pocket: Using insurance may be the way to go if you have collision coverage, the damages exceed the cost of a deductible, and you were not at fault for the accident
