living in florida so unfortunately no basement...i thought it would require removal of the flooring or at least a section of the drywall in order to extend the pipes...do the pipes have to be run underground...what would you charge for something like this

you need to move supply lines for the washer, have a drain to hook up to and with the dryer, you need a power source, and a vent to the outside. Good time to sit back and see if you really want to move it from present location.

How far are they moving?
Where are the drain pipes now? In the floor?
You need a certain amount of angle to the drain to make them work
And you also need a means of venting the new drain area
