Front Bumper Repairs


Picture this: you’re backing your car out of a stall in the parking lot at the Leduc Recreation Center. There’s a light post visible in your rearview mirror, but it couldn’t be that close right?


Then you hear that crunch of metal on concrete, your vehicle shudders, and the damage is done: you’ve just dented your rear bumper.


How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Dented Bumper in Leduc?


The cost for repairing a dented bumper varies based on a number of factors, including the severity of the damage and the year/model of your car. These days, a lot of cars have sensors built into the bumpers, making simple repairs more complicated. Often, it is easier and more cost-effective to simply replace the bumper with an OEM or aftermarket part.


Our Advice? Expect around $300 - $500 for your average bumper replacement, but expect to pay in the range of $1,000+ if your vehicle is a luxury marque or has specialty sensors.
