Some wanted to chisel a trench on the inside, lay down some plastic conduit, and duct the water out the side of the house, with or without a sump pump. Some offered to dig up all or a part of the exterior of the house, seal it, and lay exterior drainage pipes. Some wanted to do some combination of the two.
Some gave me seemingly straightforward estimates, while one gave me the new car dealership treatment, steering me towards a particular approach, sending a manager out to give me a second pitch, complete with a "now or never" price.
I'm waiting for one more estimate to be faxed over, which I hope won't be prohibitive, since I liked this last guy's solution the best.
