Depends an awful lot on what type of system you have, and also on type of piping to some extent. I am presuming you mean only the pump and that the pit and incoming line(s) are OK.

Simple drop-in low-head units can run from $150-350 typically but up to $500 range and would cost only about $100-250 in labor to replace typically. Higher-powered high-capacity grinder or high-lift units, and ones that sit totally immersed inside a watertight sealed chamber rather than just a covered pit can run more like $500-1500 for the pumps and can run $200-400 or so for the replacement labor. So, could be from $250 on very low end for a sump-pump type unit on up to $600-750 for larger or more complex units of that type, to $700-1900 range for some sealed pit types.

In most houses I would guess it would cost in the $500-700 range typically.
