Feel free to add some more and change the names of the services if you think they are too cheesy.
Not cheesy enough ! Not sure on prices but couldn't resist the opportunity
Full service 'Double Gloucester service'? (EVERYTHING - full strip down, parts replaced as required)
Partial service 'Parmesan service'? (a near rebuild - parts replaced as required, could lead to a Double Gloucester service if required)
Minor service 'Dairlylea service'? (brakes & gears checked, bolts checked, tyres pumped up)
What, no Ilchester in there?
Much of the above work I'd take on myself rather than get the LBS to do it so have no real feeling for a ballpark charge, but I'm fairly useless at wheel truing and would use a professional for that - going rate for sorting a buckled wheel in both of my main local shops is about 10-12 quid IIRC
Other jobs I don't have the skills/tools for that I've had done in recent months by proper mechanics and which might be worth dropping in to your list:
Wheel build - £25 per wheel for labour, spokes extra with cost depending on type the customer specifies (typically another £25 per wheel for d/b stainless)
Cartridge hub bearing replacement - £20 for front, £40 for rear
