You will not be able to see the new belt, but in order for them to do the job they needed to remove a motor mount, take off the timing belt cover, etc. Look in that area to see if it looks like it was recently removed.
Another thing I have seen done is to put your own kind of detective system on the part being replaced to know if a new one was put on.
What I think I agree with most of all is to establish a relationship with a garage that builds that element of trust. They put on the warranty. If I was them and I didn't replace the part, I wouldn't be offering any warranty other than that provided by the new part. How much did they charge to do the belt?
