Default Rear diff oil leak

Hi, my D4 passed its mot yesterday which is great news. It also had an advisory on an oil leak from the rear diff. It appears to be from one of the driveshafts ( diff to wheel). Obviously this needs to be done asap. Iíve had a quote from a specialist, SR Miller in Standish, Wigan of £671. This entails removing the exhaust and the diff from the car and replacing both seals whilst itís off. Millers seem to have a good reputation and much of the carís servicing is from there.
Does this sound a fair price for the amount of work involved?
Opinions welcome, cheers Steve.

I live in Wigan and have no bad reports about Millers.
I use Eccleston MOT, but I've known them as personal friends for many years.

Hi Ray, thanks for the reply.
I bought the car from a lovely guy from Whelley. The car has reams of history and all from Millers whilst in his ownership.
He recommended Millers to me.
Thanks for your's and MJ's input, I'll be making an appointment with them today
Steve
