How much would you charge?

Thanks for reading, any and all replies are welcome and appreciated. I was refered to a new customer by a local nursery where I buy all of my plants and they would like to know how much I would charge to remove 3 queen palms that are all about 12' tall from the front yard and move them to the back yard. I have been reading about the queen palm to find out how to transplant it, I just dont know how much to charge to do it. The palms are in the front yard of a house in a nice subdivision, all the houses are fairly new so the palms have probably been there less than a year. The customers biggest concern is getting them out of the front yard. I am going to inform them that I will not guarantee the survival of the palms once they are transplanted. How much would you charge and would you charge by the job or by the hour?
