How much does it cost to fix the quarter panel on my car?

After bumping a divider while driving (oops), I need to get a serious gash out of my car’s left rear quarter panel. This is definitely out of my skill level to fix, so I’ll need to take my car to a mechanic. How much will it cost to fix the quarter panel on my car?

What a bummer! Fixing a quarter panel will likely cost around $2,000, unfortunately.
Body panel repairs, including quarter panel repairs, are usually expensive. If the damage is extensive enough that the panel needs to be replaced, a new corner panel can cost anywhere between $500 and $1500, depending on if you use aftermarket parts or OEM.
Plus, the quarter panel is welded on, so replacing it is a time-consuming process. That means hours of labor, which can get expensive.
If the damage is minor and can be buffed out without replacing the entire panel, the price of repairs will be much lower.
Since you bumped a divider while driving, the damage to your quarter panel may be covered if you have collision insurance, but you’ll have to pay your deductible first.
