Have you thought about renting a roller and doing it yourself. It's actually alot easier than most people make it out to be. Just take your time and keep the paint heated.

I had zero experience prior to rolling my fenders and a buddy of mine made a fender roller out of scrap steel which i borrowed to roll my fenders with. Its a pretty easy and straight forward process, just take your time and don't try to get to much at once. I spent around 30 mins on each fender. Zero paint cracks

As easy as fender rolling is, I would still recommend bringing it to a shop. Most places will do it for $75-$100 and they'll do it properly. Just go to a reputable shop and the fender needs to be heated so the paint doesn't crack.

Fender rolling is a fairly straight forward procedure but if you don't feel comfortable giving it a go yourself a shop or mobile fender roller service would be the best bet. There are people that will come to you if you are looking to get it done and for a reasonable price. Just depends on where you are located.
