On average, you can expect the cost of replacing your car door to fall anywhere between $500 and $2,500. Exactly what you pay will depend on several factors, including:
The make and model of your vehicle
The extent of the damage to the door
Your level of insurance coverage
Your car insurance deductible
A new car door shell alone can range from $250 to $1,500 depending on the make and model of your vehicle and whether or not a used door can be found and installed rather than a brand new one.
Labor costs will only bring the price up even further—adding on at least another $200 to the total cost of repairs. This is also where the extent of damage comes into play, because labor costs will increase if any connecting door parts or electrical components were damaged in the accident and require subsequent repairs.
If you’re looking to keep your cost as low as possible, it’s worthwhile to request quotes from a few different auto shops. This can help you get a clearer picture of what you can expect to pay—and also find a shop that fits into your budget.
