Gold Coast, AUS Slipping Recommendation?

Time for slipping and anti-fouling for my boat in SE Queensland. Any recommendations as to vendors? I talked with a guy from Bradford Marine at the Expo yesterday, $1000 plus $150 for Propspeed. But they work out of the Gold Coast City Marina, and Coomera is a bit of a schlep for me. Someone recommended I check out Runaway bay, which is very close to where I have the boat berthed anyway. I called Boat Control, and their price was higher than Bradford: $1,100/$180 for Propspeed. I'm now waiting for a call-back from A1 Marine. Any other places I may be missing? The boat is a 21-foot Roberts Longboat.

PS. Is Propspeed really important? I have read several posts here - or maybe they were on Trawler Forum - that suggested it's a nice upgrade. Thanks in advance!

Don
