Vulnerability assessments and their cost

Technology Solutions one of our subsidiaries does these and I asked 
the question to them and they responded that without knowing more 
about your system that you want tested it is hard to give a 
price.  Evidently there are a lot of variables.  They would be more 
than willing to talk to you about this if you provide a number etc 
that they can contact you at.

I recently received some pricing on a web application vulnerability 
assessment from a large security service provider who shall remain 
nameless.  This assessment basically consisted of using web 
application scanner, turning it loose, then performing some 
verification on the issues reported.  No actual exploitation of the 
application would be done.  The price was was fairly expensive.  So 
I have some questions for the everyone.

What seems to be the going rate for a:

- Web application vulnerability assessment?
- Network vulnerability assessment?
- Wireless vulnerability assessment?

I assume there is some disparity between the prices of a brand name 
security service provider and a smaller security company.  Does 
anyone know what those differences in price would be?

I'm trying to get some idea of what to expect as I contact different 
companies.  I wouldn't mind knowing for any future private endeavors 
as well.  :)

Thanks for the help all.
