Contactor about $30 retail, capacitor about $10-15 for that GE capacitor - contractor might marks that up about 100% more. Labor should, unless something in the way makes opening the casing up hard to do, be minimum service charge of typically about $60-125.

Some HVAC contractors are going to "book rates" - flat rate for a given job (with or without parts), commonly around $200-250 for this type of replacement.
