Upgrading from 2.1 to 2.5AE

I've been running Yabb for a long time on our Non-profit site, starting back in the days with 1.# and upgraded all along to 2.1.  Then several years ago I tried to do an upgrade, but never got the correct files in place to have a functioning forum, so after 3 days for frustration, just lived with 2.1.

It has come time to upgrade my beast, but I'm afraid to do it, and am gun shy.  I have 2.5AE running perfectly, but need to transfer files from the old version with all the content and provide a redirect to the new site, as we have a lot of visitors and members on the site daily.  we have 1517 members and 100K posts in 10K topics.  I was at our annual meeting and was given permission to find an outside group to make the upgrade for us. 

What I have: a functioning YaBB2.5AE already installed

What I need:
1)transfer/copy of all files to a functioning 2.5AE.
2) a redirect to the new forum

We have our own server, so you can just copy files and leave the other forum functioning while you do the work, as space is not a problem nor bandwidth.

Here is the URL:http://www.griswoldandwagner.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl

Is there anyone willing to give me a quote on what the costs would be?  tx, Greg
