Heating and A/C would be your normal Search the List category for this - though some Plumbers also do it, and of course Handymen (though your chance of an illegal or questionable job is probably significantly greater there).

Naturally, exposed floor joists to run it in cuts your cost, if available - and you want to limit your run distance to as short as possible, and definitely as few bends or uphill runs as possible, as those increase air friction and cause clumping and dust clod accumulation, respectively.

Depends on complexity of the run, and accessibility to put the ducting in - can be as low as minimum service call (typically $50-150 depending on area and trade) plus $25-50 or so materials to just punch one through a wall directly behind a dryer, to more like $250-350 probably common total charge with decent access through floor joists or such, to $500+ (not including drywall repair and repainting afterwards) if it has to be run through a couple of walls and floors to get to the outdoors.
