I used CVS to convert some super 8 video and I was happy with the results
(DVD quality and the condition of my returned films).  The actually
conversion is done by YesVideo, which I believe can be contracted
independently, but I liked the idea of dropping it off and picking it up at
my local CVS.  I did try to find a local shop to do the conversion, but the
equipment is apparently quite expensive and they all recommend YesVideo (or
had no clue who to recommend).

Not specifically, but I would caution you to not send all the film in one

In my case, I found a company 60 miles away that does conversion on-site.
Though I haven't used them yet, I can go look first and see how they take
care of things.  I know that some companies pack up the
stuff you ship them and send it overseas to be scanned.   I have no
reason to believe that this would be any worse, but why take a chance like
that to save a few bucks for something as important as family pictures?
