Check out the Home > Fencing link in Browse Projects, at lower left, for a lot of prior similar questions with responses and ballpark typical costs - of course, get several bids to determine what is fair for your specific situation.

When you call, since this is a replacement, be prepared to tell them if the existing posts are concreted in (might have to dig down a few inches to a half foot to check that on a couple of posts) or not, because that affects how they will do it. Also whether you will accept an odd-length panel at the ends (if this connects to fencing not being replaced), because with concreted in posts it is commonly cheaper to cut the posts off and put in new ones nearby rather than pull them out and have to dispose of the concrete - but that generally makes for uneven post spacing at the ends.

Actually not too hard to remove concreted in ones in just a couple of minutes with a couple of farmers/bumper jacks and a spreader beam but most contractors don't think that far, so manually digging them out is the norm and quite expensive if you demand uniform spacing.
