And...... depending on how much they charge, you might as well be better off going with a new cage. Sometimes you get lucky though and can find someone who can do it for cheap!

If bar spacing too wide, best to avoid anyway.
Often, going to an auto shop for refinishing is MORE expensive than just buying one brand new.

It really depends on the autoshop. I've heard of some doing the cages within the $70-$200 price range, which is still cheaper than buying a brand new cage that could adequately fit a macaw or cockatoo. That is, unless of course the cage is already within the $200+ range and you are buying it used... in which case, new is best anyway! I mean, if it's going to cost $200 for the cage, $200 for the paint job... that's $400 that could go towards a new cage. A free cage or an old one that you already have that's actually a good cage might be worth the auto-shop price.

For a cage for a smaller bird, not necessarily worth it to get one repainted...
