Really depends on the shop and how severe the areas are. Only way to know for sure is to call. One may do it for x amount another may do it cheaper.

How big are the areas and how bad are they. Anything you could possibly do yourself?

Post pictures. Paint jobs are a you get what you pay for type thing. You can go to maaco and get it done cheap but how do you think thats gonna look.

Just go to a couple reputable shops around you and get estimates

If you get an inexpensive paint job, be prepared to not be satisfied with the results long term.

If you want it done right, call the local dealer and ask them which body shop they send their cars too - often brand new cars will get minor damage during the delivery process.
