How much to install bay window tracks?

Morning all, have any of you had curtain tracks installed for a bay window? I know it will be cheaper just to buy a track from somewhere like dunelm and bend it and install it myself but that just sounds like a massive faff!

I've been quoted £210, a bit more than I wanted to spend but don't know if it will be worth it! Does this price sound about right? Thanks!

Has the person quoting seen the job in person?
It seems a bit steep to me but then we've done all our bay window tracks ourselves. How difficult it is depends on the wall on to which you're fixing , sometimes battens are needed when the plaster is looking a bit dodgy.
If you have a hammer drill and spirit level though it's generally a simple job and shouldn't take more than a couple of hours, so I'd get another quote from a handyman.

I've sent measurements and photos. They will have to be ceiling mounted as the frames go right to to top. I'm worried if I do it the weight of the curtains will just pull it out the ceiling!
