Help with Bumper damage question

I came out of my apartment building a few weeks ago and noticed someone had hit my car in the parking lot. Its not too bad just scraped up, I ran my hand across the damage and its basically just paint, nothing broken or cracked.

My question is, how much do you think something like this would take to be repaired (painted) and does anyone have a good shop recommendation south of Boston?

Ugh. Damn careless people! Probably ~$600 for a repaint.

That's sucks. A repaint and clear coat will run $500-600. Also, plan on not having the car back for 2, maybe 3 days max depending on drying time.

Allston Auto Body! They did great work on my performance aero kit paint and install! Decent pricing too! PM me if you want more details.

He does amazing work and is extremely fair on pricing.
It would more than likely be about $450 if you're interested...
