Lorry drivers eh ! And they are supposed to be expert drivers
The paint on the wheel arch looks as if it would T-Cut off imo, its worth ago non the less. I think the easiest and cheapest thing to do to repair the door would be to find a door the same colour as yours from a scrappie and get that fitted either by yourself or by the garage.
Looks to me like the rubbing strip did its job and took the brunt of the impact / swipe. It could have been much worse mate and you got off lucky by the looks of it.
