Need some help here....

I had a handyman quote me $410 for materials and the installation of 12" Closet Maid closet shelves (9-10 shelves in total). Is this reasonable or overpriced?

Sounds reasonable to me, between measuring everything, running to pick up all the material, and a few hours on the install. The material alone can easily be $150 or so by the time you get the clips, brackets, etc (and you didn't say whether the shelves are 2' long each or 8' long), and any decent professional with a van, tools, insurance, etc., isn't going to pull out of the driveway for less than $300.

since the shelves are being put up in different style closets (i.e. Bathroom vs. Bedroom) there are varying lengths. Some are 2' long, others are 6' to 8'.
