It depends on whether the local, reputable shop is talking about a full alignment or just toe-in. Many shops tell you they can do it but in reality, they are unfamiliar with setting caster and camber. This is not saying they can't but find out the equipment they use and if they can do a complete alignment.

I take mine to an independent but they use a computer-linked laser alignment machine. They regularly do Porsche, Bentley, Maserati, BMW & MB, so they are well equipped and knowledgable with many makes. Their machine literally shows them where to adjust and how much. In fact, most of the local shops send all of their alignment work to them.

So I guess it depends on the independent shop you are dealing with.
