Front Left Bumper & Fender Scratch (Pretty deep) - Please help!

I sustained a scratch along the front left bumper and fender. It seems to have reached the primer layer. Two local shops in SoCal have quoted me $500-$600 and several days to one week for the repair, as they believe the bumper and fender will need to be removed, repainted, and re-installed.

Could you guys chime in if this sounds valid.

I've read on prior posts that C&C Collision in South Pasadena is well-regarded in SoCal, your opinions.

Thanks guys.

Not sure about C&C

I had some bodywork/paint done at Caliber Collision in Costa Mesa. They did a great job. Have several shops in So-Cal.

Great customer service.

I've read that it costs $500+ to do a re-spray of the front bumper so $500-600 for a front quarter panel + bumper sounds reasonable.
