Here are a couple of prior answers I have given on similar question that might be of help to you - can't get real specific because you local prices vary, and accessibility for removal and pouringthe new concrete is critical, particularly since you are in the range where a concrete mixer truck will probably be used rather than a portable mixer - assuming access for the truck.

Demo and removal cost likewise dependent on accessibility - but typically around the numbers in the two links above.


Note the above links talk both larger and smaller jobs - so your cost is likely to be in the range betweenthe smaller and larger job costs.


On the slabs - if you have another place nearby where you want a walk or hard apron (like around a barbecue or fire pit) or even a base for a new shed or sandbox or storage platform or firewood pad, cutting the rebar and skidding or slinging the slabs to a new onsite location might save you a couple hundred $. Can work well with 4" or thicker slab, not so often with 3" unless the slabs are 3 feet square or less. Best to separate with strips of lawn or gravel, because the unreinforced slabs will have trip points if you place them right up against each other with nothing to keep them aligned vertically.


Your Search The List category for contractors are Concrete - Pouring and Repair, Concrete - Stamped and Decorative, and possibly Driveway - Concrete since this is more than just a small sidewalk job. Also, because of your dimensions, you will have to have control joints in it the same as with a driveway - a single slab, unless designed as a structural slab and probably about 7-8 inches thick on a rounded gravel or sand base, will crack otherwise.
