How much will this cost?/Is this worth fixing?/Bodyshop Recommendations

Any super rough estimates on what it'll cost to pound out this dent + repaint? Is it worth it? We're planning on trading this car in in about 4 months so I'm not so sure if it's worth it (i.e., in terms of value recouped)... but then it's painful to see it everyday.

Any recommendations for bodyshops for a minor job like this? (Tri-cities preferably!)

It'd probably be cheaper to buy a replacement panel and have it repainted.

If you're lucky, there's a silver EK at the wreckers that you could buy the fender off and just get the bumper touched up.

BTW details on the car and price? I might be looking soon.

If you are not too worry about the bumper the fender for repair or paint should be around 300-500. Pm me for recommendations

thats a 3 hour repair for that dent.
Aftermarket fender is probably cheaper than repairing it. Ask the shop for both quotes.

$300-$500 sounds about right.

That price easy because they are gonna tell you that you have to drop the bumper to pull the headlight out to paint the fender, (even though that takes 10 mins) if you like the car dont get an aftermarket panel, get the one you have fixed and blended on just because of how nice it fits to the headlight, aftermarket panels are okay if the guy putting them on takes the time to fit it on properly, a good shop can keep the repair small and keep the cost down just to get work through the shop. try Fix Auto they are cheap

Leave it. What year is it? It's probably worth 1000-1500 trade in value so no point in paying 30% of the value just to make it look a little better.

Just leave it. You won't see the outside of your car while driving. If there's exposed metal try to touch it up so you don't get any rust.
