If your pleased with your local person and he is offering the type of service with the quality you need/want, then a pro lab would probably not be any better, and you run the risk of loss or damage in shipping, I have always either souped my own or used a local lab if possible that way I have a personal relationship with the person/lab doing the processing, from your description, I can't imagine a 'pro' lab doing any better, and as stated by bohica, sounds like your local guy is a Pro!
