Bumper Repair & Replacement Near Oklahoma City

Bumper Replacement in Oklahoma City 

Bumper Repair & Replacement Service with Bob Moore Collision Center

One key element in your vehicle's safety system is your front and rear bumpers. Bumpers are designed to absorb impact, thus protecting the rest of the vehicle from extensive damage while also reducing the force of the impact felt by the passengers. You can get your bumpers repaired or replaced at Bob Moore Collision Center, serving Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Chickasaw Nation.

Damaging Your Bumpers

Bumpers are the most commonly damaged parts of a vehicle, from the slightest fender bender to full-on collisions. The bumpers take more abuse than any other part of your vehicle. There are also components behind the bumper that can be damaged.

  • Lights: Headlights, fog lights, and the brackets that hold them can be damaged even if you don't see them. The wiring can also be affected by the impact.
  • Sensors and Signals: Your vehicle may have sensors, such as lane change warnings, backup sensors, and cameras that can be damaged in a collision.
  • Trim and Molding: Decorative trim around the front and rear bumpers can also be affected.

If you suffer from the slightest vehicle collision, it's important to have your vehicle evaluated by a professional to ensure there is no damage hidden from view. In major accidents, the damage could encompass much more of the vehicle than you would expect, so a thorough inspection is vital.

Should It Be Repaired or Replaced?

Depending on the severity of the damage, whether to repair or replace the bumper is something you should discuss with your mechanic and your insurance company. There are many situations where a repair can keep the costs down, provided the full integrity of the bumpers can be restored.

Minor scratches and dents can usually be repaired with specialty tools at Bob Moore Collision Center. The shop can also repaint or blend the finish to look new. In cases where the damage is too severe, a replacement bumper may need to be ordered and installed by certified technicians. Choosing a factory replacement or an aftermarket bumper could depend on cost and availability.

Our Service Process Begins

When you have your vehicle serviced with us, our team of certified technicians will start evaluating your situation to offer you the best solution. Our process is as follows:

  1. A free inspection is performed on one part at a time to determine if repair or replacement is what your vehicle needs.
  2. We confer with your insurance company to determine the best course of action and whether OEM or aftermarket parts can be used. Replacement parts are usually ordered at this time.
  3. When you arrive on the service date, the bumper is removed and disconnected from all components.
  4. If we are repairing the bumper, our technician uses the proper tools to repair all imperfections. In some cases, paintless dent repair can be performed. If not, we use paint that is the exact color of your bumper, so it looks new.
  5. If a replacement is in order, we attach the new bumper, attach all connecting parts, then paint it to ensure it looks like it was never damaged.
  6. We then inspect the work to ensure your vehicle is safe and ready for you to drive.
