Your car’s bumper is its first line of defense on the road and absorbs the impact when you get into a collision. They are designed to reduce or prevent physical damage to the front and rear of a car, and they protect vital elements such as the hood, trunk, grille, headlamps and taillamps, and exhaust. Most modern-day bumpers are plastic and contain an aluminum or steel reinforcement bar in the middle for extra strength; some may also feature polypropylene. A bumper can experience a range of wounds, such as scratches, scrapes, punctures, and cracks. It can also become loose or detach completely from your vehicle. If it becomes compromised in any way, it’s important to be prompt with bumper repair service.
