Car Bumper Repair Near Me
When your vehicle is in a collision, your bumper is often the first part of the car to absorb the impact. In some cases, your bumper will prevent significant damage to the rest of your car but sustain damage itself. For this reason, you want bumpers that operate as they are designed to do. At Elmer’s Auto Body, we specialize in car bumper repair, getting your car back to pre-accident condition as quickly as possible.
We have three goals when repairing your vehicle:
- Restoring the appearance of the vehicle
- Restoring the performance and safety of the vehicle
- Provide lasting repairs with high quality replacement parts and paint

Common Areas That May Need to Be Repaired
Because bumpers are designed for impact, a damaged bumper may look like the only injury to your car. In fact, the impact from the bumper may have caused other damage to your car that cannot be seen from the outside. It is possible that a collision could cause the bumper to strike the frame of your vehicle, causing damage. Even if the area around the bumper once it is removed looks fine, it is possible there could be damage further inside the vehicle that will only be seen with a thorough examination. At Elmer’s Auto Body, we look beyond the bumper to determine if additional repairs to your car are necessary.
Common Areas That May Be Damaged
- Lights: Fog lights, turn signals, and decorative lights can all be wired into a bumper. These lights must be disconnected, removed, and replaced or reinstalled.
- Trim: A modern bumper usually has several trim pieces that must be carefully removed prior to repair or replacement.
- Warning Systems: It’s not unusual to find backup sensors, cameras, vehicle sensors, lane-change warning sensors, and more in a modern bumper.
- Airbag Sensors: Some bumpers contain sensors for airbag deployment. For obvious reasons, these sensors must be removed very carefully.
- Air Intakes: While not as common, some vehicles feature a cold-air intake mounted in the front bumper.
How to Choose a Bumper Repair Shop
It is important that the bumper repair shop you choose does a thorough inspection of your vehicle. A bumper with a minor dent or scrape may actually be hiding significant damage inside your car. You also want to choose a repair shop with experience working on both plastic-covered as well as formed thermoplastic bumpers. Your bumper repair shop should also look for hidden damage that may not be visible initially. Elmer’s Auto Body fills all those needs with their talented, experienced technicians.
