3 Ways Rear Bumpers Get Damaged and How to Protect

A car's rear bumper is one of the most vulnerable parts of the vehicle, as it's exposed to a lot of wear and tear on a daily basis. Scratches, dents, and other types of damage can occur in many different ways. Here are the top 3 ways a car's rear bumper can get scratched and damaged, along with tips for protecting your rear bumper:

Rear-End Collisions

One of the most common causes of rear bumper damage is rear-end collisions. Whether it's a minor fender bender or a more serious accident, a collision can cause scratches, dents, and even structural damage to the bumper. To protect your rear bumper, always drive defensively and keep a safe following distance from the car in front of you to avoid and sudden stops. 

Parking Lot Mishaps

Another common cause of rear bumper damage is parking lot mishaps. These can include backing into a pole or another car, or having a shopping cart roll into your bumper. To prevent these types of accidents, park in a safe and visible spot, and always check your surroundings before backing up. Consider a rear bumper guard to help protect from shopping carts, or light collisions.

Wear and Tear

Over time, a car's rear bumper can develop scratches and other types of damage from normal wear and tear. This can be caused by loading and unloading your trunk or hatch, debris on the road, rocks kicked up by other cars, or even car wash brushes. To protect your bumper from wear and tear, investing in a protective film or bumper guard is the easy choice.
