Do you expect them to dig the hole by hand? In both prices they are most likely going to have to use a mini excavator. The cost for rodding from the yard i would think would be cheaper than someone getting in the crawl space and rodding from there. I would say bite the bullet and just get it fixed right and replace the section of pipe. As far as filling the ditch in your crawl space, I would buy an easy tool and spend a Saturday moving dirt on your belly.
You do need a clean out at the house were it comes out from under so you don't have to crawl under house to rod. One at curb should be optional but included in repiping. By the way it only took my plumber 1day using a small backhoe for digging 7 ft deep replacing 4pipe 10-12ft, 2 man crew. I can't believe the bid you got. It is rediculous. My job was only 2 years ago. Pensacola, Escambia, Florida. To install a new 4 C.O. Where my 3 next to house was to make rodding easier was only $100. Depth was only 3 ft. God I hope you haven't signed a contract with the guy. If he's not a crook instead of a plumber than I'd hate to live where you do. Cost of living must be outrageous.
You have a very bad bid. Get another immediately. I just paid $900 fo similar problem including clean out. Replaced about 10 ft of clay pipe with pvc tied into county sewer at curb installed clean out with about 7 ft riser. This clean out at curb is only good for see if stoppage is on your side or municipalities side. Your municipality may require it. There should not be an additional charge for this C.O. Where are you at, what city, state? This plumber is taking advantage big time. Call some one else quick.
