Which make of remote starter are they installing. When I bought my new F150 last year, my dealer thru in an Automate two way remote starter as part of the deal. It took the installer less than an hour to put it in. It is completely plug n play technology. No splicing anything. Half of the install time is programming. I can see $450 if that includes the cost of the unit, but not just for install.
Many of the new remote start systems are like this. I wouldn't allow someone to start cutting and splicing wires in a brand new truck.
Just my two cents is all.
