The estimated costs to repair a bumper are $300 to $1,600, installed. The price of a bumper repair varies based on many factors, including the type of vehicle and the type of bumper.

The cost of a typical passenger car bumper itself can range from $100 to $1,000 or more. The price depends in part on the year, make and model of the vehicle, with bumpers for luxury vehicles, pickup trucks and SUVs generally priced higher than those for typical passenger cars.

The material that the bumper is made from can also affect price. For example, a carbon fiber bumper typically costs much more than a standard steel chrome-plated bumper. Whether the bumper is an original manufacturer (OEM) product or aftermarket bumper also affects cost.

The estimated cost of installing and painting a new bumper ranges from $200 to $600, bringing the total estimated cost to $300 to $1,600.
