So I think someone in the garadge I park my car in decided that my rear left bumper wanted to meet a wall because when I went to go pick up my car there is a big scratch, but it just looks like all the paint was scraped off. I can see straight to the plastic but the plastic doesn't seemed to be damadged. Can I take this to a body shop to get fixed or do I need to buy a new bumper? This is my first car so I get really pissed when anything happens to it especially when I had nothing to do with it. Any help or advise would be great. Thanks.

take it to the body shop, they will be able to repaint it rather cheap, how is the front bumper? i assume that someone hit you from the front and thats how your car hit the wall

The front bumper is fine. I think the attendant who was parking my car was not paying attention and cliped a wall while backing the car up. Can I take it to any bodyshop or do I need to take it to the dealership designated body shop?? Thanks. I am also trying to work on having the garage pay for the repairs, but I doubt that will work out.
