300 to change UPVC front door lock?
Hi all. Newbie here and I appreciate any help in advance.

My elderly mother had the lock on her UPVC front door replaced yesterday at a cost of 300. Is this normal?

The handle on the door would turn up and down on it's spindle resulting in the door being unable to open. The mechanism and lock was changed. 245 in materials and 55 in labour (15 minutes).

The invoice is completely illegible. From what I can make out the materials consisted of: "1 x Millenco Mechanism 189-50" and "1 x 6 pin Euro 55-50".

Does this seem right?

Again, thanks in advance for any help.

I found a Milenco UPVC mechanical lock online for 355 + vat so I guess you got an OK deal.
