Three Reasons to Leave Painting and Dent Repair to the Professionals

Published On: September 26, 2022

Traditional mechanics turn minor dent repair into a major hassle. Tired of leaving their cars at the mechanic for days, some drivers take dent and bumper repair into their own hands.

As tempting as it can be, attempting your own bumper and dent repairs is risky and rarely turns out well. Here are three reasons to leave vehicle repairs to the pros.

Paint Plays a Major Role in Resale Value

Having the original paint job still on your vehicle will help it retain the most value. However, some dents, dings and scratches can strip the paint and cannot be repaired without a fresh coat.

Unlike painting a wall in your home, painting a vehicle is tricky and requires a professional. Attempting to do it yourself just won’t turn out right – often, DIY paint jobs actually make the car look worse. 

Bumper Buddies autobody repair techs use computer technology to ensure a precision color match for paint services. We’ll get your exterior looking as close to the original paint as possible.

Paintless Dent Repair May Be An Option 

If your car’s paint is still intact after a collision, paintless dent repair may be your best option. This specialized method of massaging a dented panel back into place is highly effective for some dents and is more cost-effective than other techniques. PDR can only be performed by a trained professional and shouldn’t be attempted at home. When you book a mobile dent repair service, your technician can tell you if paintless dent repair is an option.

Damage Can’t Be Covered Up

Most at-home attempts to repair damage are superficial. Covering up damage with paint doesn’t fix the underlying damage and doesn’t turn out the same way a professional dent repair service would.
