Why Get Auto Body Repairs for Minor Bumper Damage?, Cincinnati, Ohio

After a major accident, it’s obvious that you should get prompt auto body repairs. But what if the damage is small? If you’ve been in a minor fender bender, you may not want to bring your car in to the body shop just for a minor bumper dent. But in fact, there are several good reasons to do exactly that.

3 Reasons to Seek Auto Body Repair After a Fender Bender

1. Auto Body Repair Protects Car Value

Every accident you’re in, and any repairs you make are visible when someone looks up your car’s history. This means when its time to sell, potential buyers including dealerships will see the damage you didn’t fix, even before they look at the car itself. This will sharply impact the resale value of the vehicle.

2. Auto Body Repair Makes Your Car Safer

Auto Body RepairDamage to your car is cumulative. While that dented or bent bumper may not seem serious, it weakens the overall structure of your car. Next time you get in an accident, the impact may be more serious because of that weakened area — and you may even be injured when an intact bumper could have prevented most of the damage.

3. Later Claims Will Be More Successful

If you have a more serious accident in the future, your insurance company may use your previous bumper damage as a reason not to pay for repairs. After all, they have no proof that the second accident is what caused the problems with your car, and the existing damage likely made everything worse.
