Question Carpet Installation Cost - Good Deal???

I just finished building a riser for my home theatre. It's roughly 11' W x 6' D x 12" H with two 6" steps. Got a quote for getting it carpeted with padding...They estimated 18 sq yards - cost is $216, which seems in line with this particular carpet.

My question is about the install - $200. Seems kind of high for such a small area, don't you think?

Best bet is to get three or more local bids so you can compare.

That would be high for my area. It would be around $100 here. But it varies a lot everywhere.
