Generally the company that installs new flooring will charge to remove the old flooring. But every company is different, it's a matter of cutting the carpet and pad and rolling it up for the trash.

As Kathy Huff said, the contrator putting in the replacement flooring (of any type) commonly removes and disposes of the old flooring as part of his bid - though obviously not for free.

Your bigger issue is likely to be finding a flooring contractor willing to give you a reasonable removal and installation price without providing the new flooring, because you are leaving him the labor intensive parts of the job but taking away the "free" profit from selling you the new flooring - so you may end up paying nearly as much for that as if he also provided the new flooring material, and many contractors will not do just install without the furnish part.

Also, bear in mind ANY problems with the quality, quantity, or warranty issues on the flooring will be YOUR problem - do not expect the contractor to give you a warranty on material he did not provide.
