How Much Can I Expect to Pay for Wallpaper Removal?

I have a small home office, approx. 10' x 11'. The old, ugly wallpaper has got to go! I measured the walls and I estimate there is about 242' of paper that needs to be removed. It has been on the sheetrock for probably 20 years, single layer.
What can I expect to pay someone to remove the paper, and prep and prime the walls for painting? I'm in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area.
Thank you.

If you're not interested in doing this yourself, the best bet is to get three or more contractors to bid the job so you can compare.

A lot depends on how the walls were prepped prior to the paper being hung. I've stripped some wallpaper that was a breeze and others that I had to fight for every square inch

I agree with getting multiple bids.
