Front 3M film removal

Ok, I know front film removal has been covered thoroughly, giving do-it-yourself techniques, but this IS NOT what I want. I want someone else to do this!
I need to get recommendations from people who have had their film removed by shops in FL. I know there are several, so please give me your experiences with FL shops, including cost.
Also, did you have any paint damage and did you add the newer 3M film back?
If there are other shops in SE, they will be considered.

I just had mine done in Nacogdoches, TX at Xtreme Paint and Graphics. They did a great job $1,300.00. No paint damage. I did not want the 3M film back on.

I (ok, 'we') did our Endeavor by ourselves using several chemicals and LOTS of manual labor, and swore we'd never do it again. Our newer coach came with the stuff on 1/3 of the front (Dunno why it was on just one side - PO probably got tired of doing it).

Tampa-area LazyDays quoted ~$250 to do that side, but that was with a full wash/wax job too.

Alliance in Wildwood does a great job (I've seen some they did) and I think they're about $8-900.

Dig thru some old threads and you'll find people who've had guys that travel to you.

Front 3M film removal

While at Alliance in Wildwood, saw a list of things they do. This was on list, but I didn't pay attention to cost. Call 'em.

Anyone know anywhere in Washington or Oregon that can remove these things. I know why manufacturers installed them, but they sure are a pain in the rear to remove. (For me at least, and driving to Florida is just not feasible). Thanks!

Shield Removal

We had Wayne and his dad at take ours off at the campgrounds we were staying at in Fort Meyers Fl. He has a couple different campgrounds he works with. One cleaned the outside of the motor home while Wayne started on taking off the shield. It took all day but now the front looks new. I highly recommend them.
