Default fixing paint scratches

So last weekend I drove home from a tailgate with a tarp over the bed to protect my stuff (stupid mistake) and now I have a large spot of paint scratches on the tailgate.

I spoke to my dealer's auto body shop and set up an appointment for a quote tomorrow, however does anyone know what kind of price I'd be looking at for this kind of repair? I just don't want to get ripped off too badly. It's about a 1' by 1' square area at the top of the tailgate and it's definitely both paint and clear-coat scratches.

I thought about just buying a DIY repair kit but paint has never been my strong suit and I don't want to screw it up any worse.

Any advice would be appreciated because I have never had to do paint repairs before.
