95 Honda Civic

I have a 95 Honda Civic EX VTech and I'm having a mechanic change the timing belt and water pump. My car has 115000 and some change and this if the first timing belt change. Should I also change the pulleys. What might also be needed to get change? Any ideas.

PS. The mechanic is charging 295 for the water pump and timing belt (I bought the parts). Is that expensive?

Might want to change the belt tensioners at that mileage (Gates sells complete timing kits).

295 is pretty reasonable for the job involved.

Good time to change the belts and hoses and have the guy give the whole car a once over for the summer.

Joe F, I just spoke to the mechanic (he works for Express Auto Service, here in Va) and he told me that most likely I won't need the tensioners. He said that they'll check it but he seriously doubts it. Another thing, he is replacing all my plugs, wires, rotor, cap, timing belt, and water pump for 350. Is that a good.
