Random Question For Mechanics

If a bumper needs to be replaced at the collision center, but they have to order it from the storage house. Does the bumper come shipped to the collision center painted or as a generic unpainted bumper?

Unpainted

In certain european countries you can order a painted one from the factory ( take a bit longer to get )
They dont ship them far, because the paint easily gets damaged in transit

When I had my bumper replaced, the guy at the repair facility said that all car manufacturers ship unpainted bumpers in the US with the exception of Volvo.
