If this was a professional move, you should have filed a damage claim with the movers - but since you have worsened the situation getting a settlement from them at this point is iffy.

If from a DIY move or past claiming againsthe movers, you need an Appliance Repair - Large technician - though I can pretty confidently say they will tell you they will do their best but no guarantees - scratches they can probably make look pretty decent, but "deep marks" sounds like creases or dents - which unless very broad and gentle (so they can be popped out with a vacuum dent puller) are probably a lost cause.

IF from a DIY move, depending on your deductible and the value of the reefer, and on how much you are willing to risk policy pricing increase due to having filed a relatively small claim, you could try an insurance claim IF you have full replacement value coverage, not depreciation coverage. But even that is risky - they might just discount the item to the damaged value (so a few hundred $ off) rather than write it off.
