I would suggest you contact your insurance company, and have them send an appraiser. If you have visible wind damage, there is a possibility (strong) that you also have damage that is only visible to the trained eye. In high winds large sections can become loosened but appear fine from the ground, even while looking from on the roof. Creasing caused by the shingles bending backwards may also not be noticable. Doesn't cost you anything, and they know what to look for.

The price you were quoted sounds high in my book.

Good luck, no money up front (only for materials on the ground), references (and follow up on them!) and proper permits/inspections (passed and signed off on before payment!).
