Depending on what sort of equipment the shop uses it's mobility can vary. 
Some have large A/C one-stop machines that evac, vacuum test, and recharge 
automatically; these aren't very portable, the scales are delicate it they 
are sorta large. Some have a small vacuum pump hooked to a refigerant tank; 
these are super easy to tote.

Chances are that theres somebody near you that can help, but you may have to 
call arround.
