I don't know if the price is a good one or not, but it's always a good idea to get more than one bid. Some large retailers will give you bids. I once got one from Sears. Also I believe Lowes does it, probably Home Depot as well.
As to leaving the shingles on, I believe that's standard, unless they're rotten.
