Bumper Scrape! Help!

I damaged my side bumper today and was wondering if I have to replace the entire bumper or if it is fixable at a body shop.

What would be the best way to go about this? How much would the cost be?

Would really appreciate your input.

Thanks in advance.

Get a free quote at a body shop. It looks fixable. If not @$500 for a new bumper give or take on paint and install. Anymore $$ and you might want to changed the front end. I did about the same thing last week and in the same situation. Just my 2 cents.

I wld take it to a body shop. I live in Ky and recently took my wifes car to get the scrapes fixed and almost in similar area as yours. Always ask the repairman how they paint it too. I got 2 estimates and both was $480. But the first body shop said he removes the entire bumper and repaints the whole thing while the 2nd estimate was only a 'patch' repaint as in paint only where the damage is. I definitely went with the first
