Anyone had rear end damage repaired?

Want to know of anyone thats had rear end damage repaired, where you took it , how severe it was and how much it costed

Reversed into a tray top ute today and work and damaged the drivers side rear of the car. I was only moving around 10ks so damage isnt chronic, but its still there. Ill post up pics asap see what your opinions of it are.
My main concern is the support in the boot just behind the lights are is bent inward slightly, and there is a buckle in the curve of the quarter panel where the boot seal is. Im concerned that such minor damage, because the quarter is 1 piece with the roof, wont be repairable!

I need some reassurance!

should be able to just set it up on a bench and pull the rear panel out. which chances are, at same time will help straiten the quarter again. the quarter panel has a join the the roof on the pillar so if the quarter did need replacing its a pretty straight forward job
