How to Take the Hassle Out of Bumper Repair

Published On: March 8, 2020

The worst has happened, and you’ve been in a car accident. You’ve walked away without a scratch, thankfully, but your car is in serious need of bumper dent repair. You now have two choices in front of you; you can either go through the insurance claims process and have your car fixed at a conventional auto repair business, or you can trust the mobile body shop services of Bumper Buddies. Once we go over the hassle of the conventional bumper repair process, we think you’ll know which of the two to pick.

The Conventional Insurance Claims Process

Let’s say you decide to go through the insurance claims process to get your car fixed. First, you’ll have to go to the police to get a report of the accident and report the incident to the Department of Motor Vehicles. You haven’t even spoken to your insurance agency yet, and you’ve already had to navigate two bureaucracies’ worth of headaches. But the “fun” is just beginning.

You’ll then need to speak with your insurance provider to report the accident. They will assign a claims adjuster to work on your claim and see if you qualify for coverage. Unfortunately, if you don’t meet the requirements of the adjuster, they may deny your claim and leave you covering the cost of repairs by yourself. Claims adjusters will also often try to pressure you into using certain repair shops or rental services that you may not want to use. By law, an insurance company cannot force you into actually using these options, but they may still try to manipulate you into believing you have to do so. After all of this pressure and jumping through hoops, you can finally get approved for coverage…and then be saddled with higher insurance rates afterward because you were in an accident. Anything you saved in terms of dent repair cost thanks to involving your insurance provider can end up evaporating over multiple insurance payments later on.

Then, once you finally get covered, you have to drop your car off at a body shop for dent repair. You’ll have to wait days for it to be released back to you, all the while paying for a rental or going without transportation.

Afterward, you pay us out of pocket with no involvement of your insurance agency, letting you keep your low rates. Because of our specialization and low overhead, our dent repair cost is often lower than your insurance deductible. We use the same tools and techniques as a conventional repair service, but we do it faster and at a lower cost to you.
