Default DIY Dent Removal or cheaper places locally?

I sorta accidentally butt checked my car today and put a medium sized dent (more of a push in) in the car. (behind the passenger side REAR door above the rear wheel




The Dent Wizard guy was working in the bay next to me and I asked him how much it'd be for him to do and he wanted $100 cash. He said to use his tools, he'd have to drill a hole to get behind it.
I was thinking, I only bumped against it lightly and it's such a small roller dent (no angle to the dent) so I'm wondering if I could use a big suction cup to pull it (the kind they use to remove windshields from cars) or if that "Saw it on TV" pops a dent thing might work.
I really can't afford the $100 for this dent.


This is the tool I have at work that removes windshields from cars

Not sure if the Dent Wizard is the same as the Ding Master, but Steven Nash at Hi-Tech Auto Care at 42 Barber Road in Framingham are a great group of guys. That dent is on the crease so I'm not sure if the suction cup thing will work...

that dent is right on a body line making it alot harder to remove. $100 doesnt sound like alot.

You could try Dent Wizard in Mass, I used to work down there. The spot that the dent is in though does look like a difficult spot to get to. Try given them a call.
