    Fitting cost for laminate flooring should be around the 10-12 per sqm mark. So it sounds quite expensive on the face of it.

    Door trims and beading shouldt cost too much, theyre fairly simple jobs.

    Have they mentioned anything about trimming the doors if needs be?

    Get a few more quotes.
    Don't be angry!

    Can they give you a breakdown of the quote? I recently had 68 sqm of laminate fitted for just over 800, however I had already removed the existing subfloor and disposed of it so I'm not sure how much they are charging you for that plus the work to screw down the existing floor boards.

    I can only compare to my job but I think yours is a tad on the high side, doesn't seem outrageous though depending on the removal, sub floor prep and beading costs.
