NYC hard drive recovery options

To put it simply, I was stupid and didn't properly set up my RAID system resulting in a 20TB G-RAID crapping out after only a few years and not mounting. The drive has basically my entire portfolio of work on it (film industry). I took it to a shop and they quoted my $5k+ to repair it.

so I guess my questions are 1. am I being taken for a ride with that price? I know it's a lot of data but damn. 2. does anyone know any alternatives in the NYC area that would be slightly more affordable?
