Prices depend a lot on labour rates, last time i was in my local stealer they charged 80 per hour! and take into account inflated parts prices, an oil and filter change i've seen some people pay 80 whilst other have been charged a lot more 120 plus, a regen again some just charge an hours labour, and that'll include plugging it in.
I would ask them what codes has the ecu come up with and what are they.
The oil and filter need changing regardless as you've got a sump full of diesel oil, i would ask them to do that and a regen and reset the system for both oil and dpf sides.

Cost quoted for 1 injector 750 plus VAT
They want to change all four as they don't know which one is faulty.

Not bad business?

Did you ask them to do an oil and filter change plus a regen and reset the system? and did you get any codes?your dealing with monkeys who have no idea, if you haf an injector problem they could flow test them to rule out if you had a bad injector which you have'nt.
Personally i'd take it to someone who is a diesel specialist, your just going to throw money away.
