Keep your vehicle roadworthy with our front bumper repairs

You’ve smashed your front bumper. But it’s not so bad. A webbed crack here, a minor scuff there… Is going in for car repairs really worth it? 

A broken front bumper is not something you want to take your chances with. Driving with a broken bumper could:

  • Adversely affect your car insurance
  • Reduce your car’s resale value
  • Land you in trouble! It’s illegal to drive with a broken bumper under Australian law
  • Put you and your passengers at risk if it’s hiding more significant structural damage 

At Sheen Panel Service, we’re experts at front bumper smash repairs. With over 50 years of experience, we can get your vehicle back in roadworthy condition with flawless results.

Dent repairs for all vehicles

Sometimes you’re not at fault or you need specialist repairs for your front bumper. Our panel and paint technicians can help you with removing car dents, paintless dent removal, and much more no matter what type of vehicle you own.

A front bumper can be repaired — but the method matters

If you’re worried about how much it costs to repair a front bumper, first remember what they’re for: to protect you in an accident.

Cheap panel beaters are known for using non-genuine parts and cheap paints. Lower quality standards mean lower prices. But, importantly, it can mean less protection if you’re in an accident. Poor paint quality on your bumper can crack, and when the water seeps in, it can cause rust to form and seriously damage the unprotected areas inside your car.

If you’re looking for a top-quality front bumper repair specialist, consider the following:

  • They should be happy to offer a lifetime guarantee on their repair work, deal with your insurance company for you, and provide an accident replacement vehicle
  • They should expect you to ask a few questions — good panel beaters have nothing to hide, will answer all your questions and take great pride in their work.

The cost of repairing a front bumper isn’t usually debilitating. But the cost of not getting it repaired? That’s a price nobody wants to pay.

frequently asked 

How long does it take to repair a front bumper?

Our experts can repair a front or rear bumper in a day or two. However, a total bumper replacement will take longer. 

We’ll have to factor in the shipping time if you need an entirely new bumper.

However long it takes, we’ll ensure you have an accident-replacement vehicle to keep you on the road during your car servicing.

How much does a front bumper repair cost?

The cost of your front bumper repair car service depends on the damage sustained.

If our panel beaters cannot repair your front bumper, we may have to order a new replacement part (or parts). We will also need to assess the rest of the vehicle to see if it’s sustained any internal damage from the accident. 

If you’ve been in an accident, bring your vehicle in for an assessment, and we’ll give you a detailed quote.
