Roof Dent, How Much to Repair?

During the huge snowstorm I think a piece of ice made a big Roof Dent on my 2002 Camry SE. I was wondering how much do you think this will cost to repair? How long will it take? The only damaged area is on the Roof, the doorskins aren't damage and the sunroof isn't damaged.

Call a Paintless Dent Repair outfit in your area, there looks to be no sharp creases and with a sunroof there would be no ribs under there. You would be surprised what they can do for exactly this type of dent.

I took it to the Body Shop recommended by State Farm today for an estimate. The guy was surprised, but said "I did a BMW with the same damage las week!" That was actually a job that was messed up by another shop. So it will be fixable, just expensive and take awhile.
