What is the cost to replace a car bumper?

Is it expensive to replace a car bumper? I got into a car accident and my bumper has a big crack.

I’m so sorry to hear you got into an accident — hopefully, you’re not hurt!
The type of vehicle you have and what auto body repair shop you visit will determine the total cost to replace your bumper. In most situations, the cost to replace a bumper will be between $800 to $2,000.
Since mechanics will need to paint, sand, and seamlessly match the new bumper to your car, labor costs can increase the overall price of replacing a bumper. The type of vehicle you have and whether parts are readily available will also impact the price.
If you aren’t at fault for the accident, the other driver’s property damage should cover the replacement of your bumper.
If you’re at fault, you’ll need collision coverage to cover the damage.
Should your policy not include collision coverage, consider adding coverage or switching companies for the future. If you’d like help exploring your options, try Jerry.
