What Caused This Bumper Damage? Sign In

My car was recently parked in a garage and was damaged. When I asked the valet if they were responsible, they did not claim responsibility.

Here is the image of the damage:

My question for you:

1) Was this caused by the car hitting a concrete wall? This is my theory, as the bumper has gold paint in it that exactly matches the wall color in the garage.

2) Was this caused by another car hitting my bumper? This was the theory of the valet, as they say the bumper is "punched in" which only another car could do.

Looks like another car did it to me.

Thanks for the reply. Why do you think another car caused the damage?

A flat surface or an edge would have left a crease. Something rounded hit that.

I see transfer of both white paint and a yellow used in parking items or walls, drive-thru places and such. This may have been hit twice! How to prove it and when it's own mystery. Note your white fender is also marked.


IDK, does this place have video of their parking garage? I wouldn't be pleased of course either,
