Moving drain pipe

My wife and I will be finishing our basement in the near future. I am currently doing the floor layout and have an issue.
The basement has the plumbing for the tub and toilet and sink drainage already. I do not like the placement and was wondering how much it would cost roughly to have it moved. The toilet and sink would move. The tub is fine.

They would move roughly 5-8 feet.

I have 6+ inches of cement and the job would be snaking the current pipe to see how it's ran? Then just drilling into the concrete and rerunning the plumbing...? Right? After that is done I could just use some bondage and cement mix and pour it back in?..

as for costs, you need to get quotes from local plumbers. If you want to do it yourself, post some pictures of the existing work. There are several knowledgeable people here to offer guidance.
