Is this excessive or typical?

This involves no trenching, pipe running, or anything. This is simply to hook up a sub meter inside the home and a pvb on the exterior wall. Is it just me or is this quote ridiculous?

he said he would take $125 off if i supplied the backflow. I figured this would be around $800. I'm shopping around now

What do you guys usually pay?

$210 and I supply all stock. Thats without metor. Metor adds another $50.00 + permit when needed.

Some towns are capable of adding a nice fat fee to these second-meter jobs, as if they know they are going to lose out on meter revenue, so pay up front for future savings.

That is the kind of quote that says I don't really want this job, but I'll do it if you pay me this outrageous sum of money.
