Customer Question

I backed into a Honda Accord. I think it is a 2015. I scratched the drivers side fender right above the drivers side wheel. And a cover inside the wheel well fell out also. There was no dent just scratches. How much do you think I will have to pay to repair this for the driver of that vehicle?
JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: What page?
JA: Besides this, what condition is the car in?
Customer: Very good
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No. I will have it fixed by an autobody shop.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Honda Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

I cant I am at work and I was wondering what cost I was looking at. Can you help figure this out?
Expert:  Lou P replied 1 year ago.

a repair like this can cost about 500$ BUT i would like to see it, depends on how deep the scratches are. the paneling is not an issue its the labor involved to paint the damage and blend it with the rest of the body. a 2" scratch takes about 8"'s of blending around the area.

Does the $500 include labor?
Expert:  Lou P replied 1 year ago.


Expert:  Lou P replied 1 year ago.

paint and materials are never the expensive part of bodywork its the labor involved.

This helps me. Thank you so much.
Expert:  Lou P replied 1 year ago.

i hope i am wrong and its way cheaper :)

make sure you get 3 different estimates and use that to get the lowest price possible, its a great trick :)
