Need advice on repair

As some of you may know I had my car serviced a few weeks back. So at first everything seemed good, went to wash the car and noticed damage on central pillar on passenger side.

Decided to check the whole car and saw that driver side was also damaged. The pillar is dented and paint scraped to bare metal. I called back the garage and notified them. So after 3 weeks of waiting they are saying it wasn't them but are happy to pay for half the cost of the repair.

I then mentioned that the damage wasn't there and car was only dropped of at the garage. He replies saying that he cant see the damage being done by them. So anyway he still offers to pay half the price for the repair and even give me a courtesy car for free without having to pay for insurance. At first I was happy about this, but then I realized, why would they bother paying for half the job and even offer car if they are sure it wasn't them.

Are they just trying to squeeze me of any money they can? I know 100% there was no damage as I always wipe down the car after washing.

Should I be demanding full payment for the repair?

The repair would be around 150+vat.
