Be sure to pay attention to the described scope, because some are for partial removal (like only fireplace) so be sure when thinking $ that you are comparing apples to apples. Clearly the bidding on a job like this varies a lot because each contractor has his individual strenghts, and many will have little experience with demolishing a chimney, somsome may bid using their own forces and some using a mason for the deconstruction. You need to be sure to spell out a scope of work that is inclusive - chimney removal and disposal, new framing where it was (including in some cases substantial framing if the chimney was supporting some of the house beams/joists as is sometimes the case), possibly a bit of utility relocation in the walls, wall vapor barrier/insulation and water barrier and siding, a bit of roofing likely, interior wall surfacing (drywall/plaster/wood/panelling or whatever), interior painting, flooring section where the fireplace/hearth was, etc.
