If you prime them and have them ready to paint and take the paint and clear coat required along with you, it should be a 2 hour job to put on the 2-3 coats of paint and 3-4 coats of clear with the 15 mins waiting in between that is recommended. More clear if you want to buff the clear out and more money if you want the shop to buff it out. Should cure for about 30 days though before you buff or wax and the shop won't wait that long. Add 1 hour for other stuff and bit for cleaning and waste disposal.

OTOH, if you can spray primer, just get the gun with the money you save and do it yourself. Probably turn out much better.
