300 tdi timing belt change

my D90 300 TDi has just got to 60K, (it's a 1998 one so shouldn't need
a mod kit)
I want to get the timing belt changed.

What is the going rate for doing the job? other than the belt, what other
parts should I supply to the garage doing the job? I don't feel confident
to do it myself.

I'd not ilke to comment on the going rate bit, but all you should
need is a belt and timing case cover gasket. The crank dust seal
in the timing case cover ought to be replaced, but may not be strictly
necessary (depends on your views on replacing seals automatically
if they have been disturbed). The timing case crank and cam seals
should only need replacing if there is evidence that they have moved
and/or are leaking.
