Bumper Repairs Joondalup Archives

These days, most bumpers are plastic…

Every day I receive a number of quote requests for bumper repairs. Many people are actually surprised that their bumper is not made of the same material as the rest of the car and that it is actually made of plastic. This is especially common if the bumper is a colour coded plastic bumper (colour coded means it’s painted to look the same as the rest of the car.) Every now and then, I’ll receive an enquiry from someone with a chrome bumper (note: we don’t fix chrome) or with a fibreglass bumper (which we can maybe fix), but it’s far less common.

So can we fix your car’s plastic bumper?

As a SMART Repairer, we’re pretty happy your bumper is plastic. That’s because plastic bumpers are flexible, can be warmed/heated and remoulded. This makes seemingly  impossible repairs possible.

  • Dents and Dings in Plastic Bumpers: We often find a bumper dent looks worse than it is. Even a dent the size of a dinner plate can often simply “pop out” with a little heat. Don’t try this yourself though. You need an expert to do it “just right”.
  • Cracks in Plastic Bumpers: If you have a crack in a plastic bumper, we can often weld the crack back together. Sometimes we can do this while the bumper is still on your car. Other times, as shown in the photo above (of a plastic bumper repair in Perth), we need to fully remove the bumper from the car in order to get right behind it. Although this is a time consuming job, it’s still better value than replacing the bumper.
  • Scratches and Scuffs: If you have scratches and scuffs in your bumper, we can fix these too. We will sometimes use filler or just polish it to a smooth finish before we repaint it. If you have a textured plastic bumper (rough surface), we can even use a textured paint so there will be no detectable difference between the repaired area and the original finish.

If you’re in Perth, give us a call. We service the Perth metro area for all plastic bumper repairs.

Service Area – North and South of the River

To save driving all over the City, we try to keep all jobs on any particular day in one area. If you live more than 30 minutes  drive from the City, you might need to wait until we can arrange a few jobs in your area to make it worth our while coming out.

The Smart Finish mobile van can be seen all over Perth. Despite the fact we will travel to most areas in Perth, it seems South of the River people call us more often… and we’re constantly surprised by the number of jobs South of the River!
