One million dollars.
Think about it, no one here can see the house layout from here or the number of square ft..
No one even knows where your are so there's no way to know the local labor rate.
Get three local prices and then you'll know what the going rate is.
Why not install it yourself and save the money, it's not that hard a job.

Call your local home depot--they install---cost depends on the number of doorways--and number of corners and how flat the floor is.

Thanks Joe. My most sincere apologies. I am new to the forum & am still learning. Anyway I am in Southern California. Th job is 850 sq. feet of laminate.
I plan on installing it myself but just trying to get an idea of what it would cost to hire it out.

The variables are too much to estimate without being on site. How complex is the space. What is the existing sub floor condition and material. . Any demo need to be done? You can buy a cheap car for 15 grand or a Ferrari for 500 G. Either one is a car. Best way is to call a couple of flooring contractors and get quotes. Of course I could go in to the fairness doctrine if you don't tend to hire one of them but I will stay off that soap box. Home Depot might be able to give a ball park.

Tom, I just installed 420 feet this week---I charged about $1000 plus a hundred or so for odds and ends---customer supplied material (after I approved the choice)

This was just a small part of a larger project--so pricing reflects a lower cost than usual.

Base and shoe molding install was not included in that cost---was part of the trim project

While pricing questions are generally frowned upon, because they vary so much by location and job site---thus making them rather useless---

giving someone a general idea sometimes help to let a member decide on pursuing further info from a local contractor or giving up on an idea---
