Recommendation for mobile engine servicing

My Mercury Optimax 150 needs a service. Would like to do it myself, but haven't got the time (loads of DIY at home in progress).

The boat's on a trailer at home, but it's a major faff to get it in and out, so wondered about someone who could come to the boat and do the service.

Any recommendations in the Southampton area?

(I've just tried Rib Shop - who I've used before on a previous boat - but they won't come out to an engine they haven't seen before to avoid running to and fro if they need extra parts)

Thanks,

Gerry

It would maybe a good idea to have a recommended engineer section...there's a lot of people struggling to find decent engineers accross the country
