I have a solid rock that weighs 2000 lbs is my basement, what is the best way (cost and effort) to get this out?
How did it get in there in the first place? I assume it can't be removed the same way?
Do you have an open-out basement through which it could be removed?
What are the dimensions? Will it fit through hallways and/or doorways?
It just "depends". Like others Dimensions, route of removal,equipment availability, type of rock, level of physical fitness are just some factors. If it cannot be removed in one section you will probably have to segment it. Too many factors to give a "exact how to" without a little more info.
Here is a way to break the rock into manageable pieces. It will require a hammer drill to drill the holes.
The method is ages old, it is probably how the Egyptians broke the rocks to build the pyramids.
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.
My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
(a) it will fit through halls and doors, and/or
(b) you have a walk-out basement:
perhaps you could get a local landscape company that sells rocks to come and move it for you. They could sell it - those kinds of rocks are highly desirable for gardens.
