    Exclamation Any good auto body shops on Kitchener/Cambridge?

    Someone hit the rear bumper of my 2017 Mazda 3 hatchback and I want to get it fixed... My local Kitchener Mazda dealer priced me 790$ through carstar to have the rear bumper sanded and repainted and that seems way too high... Any reputable auto repair shops in Kitchener/cambridge that will do a quality job, with good color matching, that would be cheaper than 790$ for a friggin rear bumper job?? Any help would be appreciated, wanna get my baby good as new!

    If it's not your fault why are you paying for the repair???

    Regarding the quoted price: $786.58 was what I was quoted last year for just refinishing the bumper but after labour and other such things the invoice total was close to $2,000

    Depends exactly what happened to your bumper. Got any pictures?

    I do collision repair estimates, and that sounds about right for a bumper job.
    Did they check inside the boot? where the spare tire is?
    Depending on the hit, you'll see the initial signs of frame damage in there.

    If someone hit your car, your insurance will cover this. Why are you spending your money?
