How much does it cost to fix a car door?

I hit a pole while backing into my parking space outside my apartment building. My passenger door is damaged pretty badly. How much will it be to repair a car door?

“Bummer! The cost to fix your car door will depend on a few different things, but it will likely be somewhere between $500 to $2,500.
You’ll likely need to purchase the door shell and interior parts, as well as pay for labor. The price will vary based on:
  • The year, make, and model of your vehicle
  • The amount of damage
  • The body shop
  • Insurance coverage and deductible amounts
Collision insurance
covers drivers in the event they hit a stationary object. So if you have collision—or a full-coverage policy, meaning
comprehensive coverage
plus collision coverage—your insurance will pay for the cost of your door repair, minus your deductible.
