Bodywork Repairs FAQ’s

Why would you need Bodywork Repair from Bridgefoot on your vehicle?

Bodywork Repair on a vehicle is an important service that prevents the deterioration of the car’s body and paint job.

Over time, a vehicle can become exposed to harsh elements such as extreme temperatures, sun exposure, road debris, etc. All of these factors can cause wear and tear to the car’s exterior.

This can lead to chips in the paint job, rusted areas, dented doors, scratched bumpers, and more.

Can bumpers and panels be repaired?

Plastic bumpers can be repaired relatively quickly with minimal equipment such as sandpaper, filler, primer, and paint.

The process of repairing a plastic bumper involves sanding down the damaged area, applying filler to create a smooth surface and then priming the area before painting. Metal panels on cars can also be repaired if they are dented or scratched.

The repair process will depend upon the type of damage incurred but may involve hammering out dents in the metal or applying a special body filler to fill any scratches or gouges.

Is it worth claiming on your car insurance for dents or scratches?

Claiming on your car insurance for a dent and or scratches is usually worth it, depending on the severity of the damage.

If the damage is minor, such as a few small dents or shallow scratches, you may be able to repair it without making an insurance claim.

However, if the damage is more severe, such as large dents or deeper scratches, then claiming on your car insurance can save you a considerable amount of money compared to paying for repairs out-of-pocket.

Additionally, filing a claim will likely increase your insurance premiums due to the risk associated with having filed a claim.

This could cause you to pay more in premiums over time than you would’ve paid for repairs upfront.

So it’s essential to do research and consider all of your options before filing an insurance claim for dents and scratches on your car.
