Amp repair cost — is this right?

I recently sent my Musical Fidelity a308cr power amp off to be recapped. This amp is somewhere around 16-18 years old and one of the power caps failed. I contacted Musical Fidelity and sent it to a repair shop they recommended. Today I received an estimate to replace 18 caps, 8 of which are large power caps, resolder the boards, and re-bias the transistors. Basically a full overhaul. The quote I received, including return shipping (prob around $100) Is over $1,300 which possibly exceeds the value of the amp. That doesn’t include the $115 it cost me to ship it out. Having never had an overhaul done on a power amp like this, I’m wondering if anyone with experience can tell me if this sounds right. I guess I was expecting something more like $600-$800 but I don’t know why since I really don’t have a frame of reference. Perhaps it was the assumption it might be 4 hours labor (say $400) plus max $200 for caps. Is $1,300+ on track? Either way I’m going to be out the shipping cost plus a $160 fee paid for the estimate.
I just had two vintage Electron Kinetics Eagle 400 mono blocks recapped by the firm that Pass Labs recommended, Music Technology Each amp was about a grand to bring up to snuff. Plus shipping. Definitely have pros do the work. You get what you pay for.

Audiogon is a very strange place. I’m simply asking if this price is in the right range and getting some really strange responses that don’t answer that question.
@jnehma1 This forum is, well, interesting. I’m constantly amazed at the willingness (need?) some have to pontificate. I guess you have to enjoy it for it’s entertainment value. A few do share useful information.

The price for your rebuild sounds high.

I’ve had the best techs rebuild classic amps a few times in the last 30 years and while it is tedious work I wouldn’t call it difficult. In the last 15 years I’ve learned to do it myself and it can be a fun Sunday afternoon project.

One anecdote. I bought a used Threshold S2 Stasis for $650 in 1990. When 1 channel started cutting out I had it repaired by Jon Soderberg. He worked for Threshold back in the day. He charged $450 to replace 1 power cap and 1 wire. Pretty pricey at the time but the amp still sounds great and I’ve recently seen the same amp sell for $2K as they’re getting scarce.
call another repair shop Dog ,  Why horse around with all this   make a decision  why play around in here and get 202 answers  
Seems a little pricey, but not crazy esp. if you truly  received the “goodwill” of years of experience and high quality parts, which you will not be able to confirm for years.  
I’ve had amps worked on and was thrilled, and had a CD player worked on by the same chap and was much less thrilled when the unit failed for the exact same reason <1 year later. 
You original question is a moot point if you didn’t pursue estimates beyond this one.
