My friend had an emergency at her home last night. Older lady with an ailing husband. Sewage started backing up into the house and basement. Sump pump in basement burned out trying to force it out but the plumbers found about 30-40ft of pipe outside the house with roots blocking about 90% of the line. To replace the piping and pump they are quoting nearly $6500. This sound about right? $5500 alone for the pipe.

we were out of town and our hot water heater blew, these guys did us right and price was very reasonable.

Depending on how far down they have to dig, the price for the pipe may be reasonable.  It was about $3k ten or so years ago when I had to have a shorter length replaced due to tree roots, but they had to dig about 10' down to do it (house is on a hill).

When the digger comes out the price goes up.  Depending on how deep the pipe is the home depot off 92 and 575 has mini excavators for rent if you can donate a day or two, price ranges from $240-$310 a day they also offer delivery for $70.
