What fan? A room that size should have one of the double ended type.

I suppose the installation costs might depend some on the fan being installed. One of those 24" fans from HD would probably be cheaper than one of the 20' Big Ass Fans

I would charge the regular fan install price, and then add in a scaffold charge. For the scaffold charge, even if you own a scaffold, charge what it would cost to rent one for the day, and then add in your hours for set-up / tear down. Any ceiling I can't get to with a 12' ladder gets a scaffold charge.

Same here, but a 10' step is what I normally carry on the van. I have a 12' step and a 21' Little Giant Skyscraper, so I charge accordingly to get those out.

You can rent a 16 Ft step ladder for about $40 a day, I charge time to pick up the ladder, a helper to get the damn thing inside at set up, fan install with extra half hour for up and down big ladder and time to take ladder down and return. Yes, the earlier answer in jest of $350 is about correct, maybe $400 to hang a $99 fan. Clients love it.....
