About $60-70 here in Canada. Personally, I recommend Dan Erlewine's book "Guitar Player Repair Guide" It's about $24 USD and cover not only repairs but setup procedures and maintenance as well. In my experience guitars can need periodic checking and adjustments throughout the years as seasonal changes affect them somewhat. About the only thing I shy away from are non-recoverable procedures like fret filing becasue of the special tools and skills required. I even do nuts now but kind of cheat a little by buying Tusk replacement nuts that are pre-slotted. This means I don't have to spend a small fortune on the nut files required, all I need to do is snad down for height!
Moving on.....

There's a guy in my area that does it for $30 and $40 with the floyd rose. Teaches you how to set it up and gives you tips along the way.

The popular shops, about $75.

If you do get it set up by a professional, ask him if he'll show you how to set it up yourself as well.

90$ Canadian here, they did an amazing job though. I have a Flyod too and it was really messed up. They stringed in upside down so the coloured knuts at the end of the string or sticking out the top of my headstock looks kvlt.

A set up should cost between £15-20 ideally whether it is FR or Hardtail. but sadly shops will charge double, just for the pleasure of being a middleman.

ideally if you get a set up go to a tech directly dont ever go though a shop as they will charge you abit more than what they will pay the tech

Normally I ask for 10$ plus the strings but I´d do it for free just to show you how it´s done.
That way you can save some cash and learn how to take care of your guitar yourself. Most of these people charge way to much for a couple of minutes of work. Once your guitar is set-up you really dont have to do anything more to it except maybe a little neck tweak once in a while if ever. Your intonation, string height is´nt going to change it all stays the same. Even your trem will stay the same after you change strings if you do it right.
Dont worry you can do it.
