I'm not close to Boston so unfortunately I cannot point you in the right direction there. But its less hassle to do the bulbs yourself then bring it somewhere. Takes literally 2 minutes, unless you have bi-xenon of course.

Remove the headlight assembly and then you can access much easier.

Follow the diy for removing your bumper but no need to remove it fully. Just the screws in the fender well and everything connected to the grill and headlamps.

30 mins tops.
