Demolition (not an Angies List category) is the type of company you need - google for local demolition companies and then cross-check to see if they are rated/reviewed on AL under a different category. OF course, if rebuilding it, then a General Contractor or Builder - Garages and Sheds contractor can do the demo and the rebuild both.

Depends on size, and to a very great extent hauling distance to the landfill and dump fees, which can run from $10/ton on up to as much as $250/ton or even more. In may areas a couple thousand is normal for a 1-2 car detached garage (leaving the foundation/slab) or commonly a thousand or two more complete including backfilling the foundation hole.

[In high disposal cost or long haul areas, might be worth it (if detached and a good distance from the house and powerlines) to see if the local fire department will burnn it down as a fire training exercise - can dramatically reduce the demo/disposal costs.

Of course, if attached then you may have structural framing costs or at least insulation and siding and at least a bit of roofing costs in addition, to turn the previously interior wall into an exterior one - that can commonly run a couple to few thousand $ more in simple cases.
