What is the cost to remove a 500 SF concrete patio in Yorba Linda, CA

Sits in the back yard and is lifting so it has to be removed.

Did not say if looking for new patio too - so I provide previous questions links on both demo only and on new patio concrete. These all assume accessibility for a dumptruck - either to the patio or close by right up alongside a fence not over say 8 feet high which a loader/bobcat could reach over to dump into the truck. If a short wheelbarrow job to get it outside fencing to where a bobcat bucket coulde be hand-filled to load the truck then commonly about 100% more.

You said it is "lifting" - if intact it is possible that mudjacking (injecting grount under it to lift and level it) might be cheaper, though does leave fresh (hence slightly different color) holes an inch or two in diameter every maybe 3-5 feet across it in a grid.

Otherwise, asuming it is breaking up, if lifting that is probably either due to winter frost heave 9usually not too dramatic with a patio slab), tree roots lifting it, or rarely having it positioned over a buried tank (oil ro septic) so it is high-centering as the fill settles. Regardless, if you don't solve the cause of the lifting before putting a new one in the same ting will probably happen again.
