Thinking of getting into the game, but not very skilled in painting myself, and also lacking a place to even attempt to paint right now. Anyone near SD that can paint reasonably well for a reasonable price?

Reasonably well, and reasonable price are very qualitative terms that differ radically from person to person.

What do you consider a reasonable quality? Tabletop? Showcase?
What do you consider a reasonable price? $10 per model? Retail cost of the model? $100 per model?

Defining your terms will get you a much better response.

Also, shipping a few models is not really that expensive, even from Canada. It typically costs my clients around $12 CDN to ship a packet to them, as long as it's under 2lb. That's about 6 large metal models.
Open up to having the models shipped to you will also open up a much wider commissioned painter base. You can save on some shipping by having the painter buy the models for you, as you would only have to pay to get them shipped once to you, instead of to the painter, and back.

The service I've used before is paintedfigs dot com, so those would be a guide for the prices and quality level that I am looking for, however, I don't want to take the time to have the minis shipped halfway around the world, and their service is backed up a month or two at the moment as well. If you take a look at their stuff and are competitive and quick, send me a message.

My prices start at $100 per single fig, and don't paint to a lower standard than showcase/competition quality.

I currently have my bench full for the next 6+ months as it is. robot

An example of what quality I paint to:
