Some people opt to do nothing and suck it up until they have to repair their lip spoiler when it finally succumbs to repeated contact with the rolled curb.
If you’re not sure what you should do with your rolled curb, let’s compare the two best options:
- Repairing your lip spoiler when it finally breaks
- Installing a BRIDJIT curb ramp to prevent damage to your car
In this article, we’re going to explore both options to help you figure out which one is the best course of action for you.
How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Lip Spoiler?
Right now, you don’t have to pay anything. When your lip spoiler finally breaks, expect to fork over a whole lot of money. Lip spoilers aren’t cheap to repair or replace. It depends on the type of car you have and the shop you hire to repair your lip spoiler. But the price tag on the repair job could go up into the thousands.
If you have the right insurance policy, the insurance company will likely pay for a part of the repair. However, there’s still a deductible, which is usually $500 or $1,000. Depending on your coverage, you may also have to pay for a rental car. So it’s safe to say that a lip spoiler repair will cost you at minimum hundreds of dollars out of pocket.
Not only does a lip spoiler repair job cost a lot of money, but it also takes up some of your time. You have to deal with the insurance company to get them to pay up, bring your car to a shop, and wait a week or two for them to repair your lip spoiler. Depending on how much you value your time, such a project could eat up hundreds of dollars in your time, as well.
A Lip Spoiler Repair is Not a Permanent Solution
Getting your lip spoiler repaired is such a hassle, and it’s not even a permanent solution. If you leave your rolled curb as is, it’s only a matter of time before your lip spoiler breaks again.
If you’re a procrastinator, waiting until your lip spoiler finally breaks from constantly driving over a rolled curb sounds pretty appealing. However, it’s a decision that will end up costing you a lot of money in the long run. If you ask us, it’s better to just get it over with and find a permanent solution now. BRIDJIT is an option worth exploring.
How Much Does a BRIDJIT Curb Ramp Cost?
The cost of a BRIDJIT curb ramp depends on how wide your driveway is. The three-piece curb ramp set costs $399, and it fits standard driveways. If your driveway is wider than usual, then you can get a 47” extra center section for only $135. Most likely, a BRIDJIT curb ramp will cost you anywhere between $400-$600.
A BRIDJIT Curb Ramp is a Permanent Solution
Unlike a lip spoiler repair job (which is more of a temporary solution), a BRIDJIT curb ramp is an investment. It prevents rolled curb damage by bridging the gap between the driveway and the road. The sooner you have a BRIDJIT curb ramp at the end of your driveway, the sooner you can stop worrying about the rolled curb wrecking your lip spoiler, suspension system, wheel alignment, and more. And, if you ever move, you can sell it.
