This Charge Sound Right For This Repair??

I'm going to get a serpentine belt and belt tensioner repair done tomorrow and the guys say they want about 225$ for the job. Do you think this price sounds legit? Family has used these people for awhile, but I've never really felt to good about them. Also, this is on my 95' Corsica.

If I remember right 94's and up had a motor mount bracket to remove to even change the belt. I know on my son's 94 this was an issue and made things much harder to do. A simple belt change cost him 75 bucks labor alone one time. The tensioner will take some time too. My guess is they are figuring a couple of hours plus. Probably not bad if they are replacing both belt and tensioner assembly. You could do this yourself, would have to remove front tire/wheel and under fender plastic cover to get at the tensioner.
