The big commercial shops are rarely, if ever, willing to attempt any such conversions. This is understandable: It's not an area of the market they've chosen to serve. Even if they do offer such things, they have to charge hundreds of dollars per hour to make ends meet. After all, they have a full-size business to run.
This is where guys like me come in. I've been working in the radio field since 1989, primarily with Motorola gear. This has given me a pretty good idea of what's practical, what's not, and how much effort is involved in any given project.
As of 31-May-15, I can program the following conventional Motorola and GE radios. Trunked radios will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and will depend upon the availability of the system ID and system key file as provided by the trunked system's owner, with their full knowledge and consent.
Due to legal and technical considerations, I will not program any trunking radio to be a "scanner" on any system. If you want to monitor a trunking system, there are plenty of trunking-capable scanners on the market.

For radios I can't handle: I can suggest two possible alternatives. One is Brinkley Electronics. For more extensive coverage of GE products, and other related radio services, you can check with Radio Gurus.
PLEASE NOTE: I don't service any sort of consumer electronic radios, such as CB or FRS equipment, nor do I deal
with mobile phones or cordless phones. If you have equipment of this nature that needs service, your best bet is your local Yellow Pages under
'Electronic Equipment Service and Repair.'
