Slight Damaged rear end

How much would it cost to get this fixed? I have full covered but can't i just take it to a paint shop to get a quick cover up before my dad kills me? help please!!

BTW: I reversed and didn't see the piece of concrete that was placed there from construction.

Is it purely paint, or is it dent too? Honestly I am not exactly sure how much it would cost, but probably more than what you would think. I'm by no means an expert, but I'm pretty sure whenever repainting a thing like that, you then have to blend it in, clear it...etc. I would guess a couple hundred. Maybe someone who knows more about it will chime in

That's more than just a touch up paint job. Whole rear bumper needs to be replaced. Just be up front with pops.

When I read, "slight damaged rear end," I was expecting to see pictures of the 2014 camaro tail.

dealerships don't have body shops. sometimes they have a shop near them that they work with.

where do you get that from? every dealer in my area has a bodyshop. some of them don't have it on the same lot as the dealership, but they all have one.

probably depends on where you live. 99% of dealerships near me do NOT have a body shop. There is one shop with the same Classic name (like Classic Chevy, Classic Cadillac, Classic Nissan, etc) that actually has nothing to do with the car dealerships.

As the parent of a couple of teenager drivers I would say level with your dad. I think he would be more mad if he found out you damaged the car and then tried to hide it with a quickie fix.

Take it to a good body shop and make sure the work is done right. Stuff like this happens all the time.
