That doesn't look too bad. From the looks of it, they just got your clear coat.

If the body mechanics charge you too much, all you need is a random orbit or angle polisher, some intensive polish, and finishing polish.

What actually might work is getting some rubbing compound and ScratchX. Rubbing compound will leave a scuff mark but it'll take away the bigger scratches. You'll use ScratchX to then cut down the scuff marks left by the rubbing compound.

If I were to fix that, I'd probably go with the rubbing compound first (since the long scratches are in a hard to polish area with the machine polish) and then finish up with a machine polish.
