  1. Do it yourself is the only safe option to know if job has been completed. If you ask for return of bits how do you know they came from your car. There are lots of good car service garages, try and get references. Most garage will do a good job, but the few spoil it. But ask to see the bits and possible photos of work this my indicate that you are not a walkover. good luck
