Default Is this price: high, low, average?

The only local machine shop I’ve had luck finding, for my 1980 civic head, quoted:
$45 pressure test
$40 resurface
$250 complete rebuild
Seems fair to me. What do you guys think?

Is it a competent shop? Low labor charge doesn't always mean mediocre/subpar work but yeah...

It has good reviews and an average above 4 stars where the other local shops have no or negative reviews. Since then another “decent” shop has gotten back to me.
$75 wash and compression test
$60 resurface
$279 + parts for rebuild
