Tesla scratch/dent repair in Buffalo, NY

I've got a nice long scratch (about a foot long) on the driver's side door of my black Model 3 probably from a shopping cart. Also, it's slightly dented it seems.

Would anyone have any recommendations for a repair shop? Tesla.com recommends Service King in Rochester, but from what I've read they can be quite pricey. Hope to keep it under $500. Would like to have it done professionally and not use the repair kit too. If there is a thread already about this, I apologize.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Is the paint layer actually removed? Or just some of the clear coat? I’d suggest trying a well reviewed paintless dent repair. They may be able to remove the dent and wet sand the scratch for a reasonable cost. If you paint it you are probably looking at over 500.
