the easiest thing to do would be do it yourself the trim i assume u mean the black piece on the car? it can be done for about 20$ or less

1st wash the car with soap and water, next your gonna need some wax and grease remover to wipe down the moldings(after the car is dry, this step makes sure theres no left over wax b4 sanding) wipe on with one towel wipe dry with another
next mask the paint not the moldings(so u dont scuff the paint while scuffing them up) out line the edges and take a red scotch brite pad and make them completely dull(makes the paint stick) then take some newspaper and tape it to the outlined tape now your gonna need to re- wax and grease the surface again(the oil from your hands is a contaminent)
next step is to tack off the surface you will only need one tackcloth tack off all of the trim

receck all the masking to make sure u dont have any paint showing and put a light coat of sem trim black on the parts(dont do it to heavy or it will turn Grey on you do 2-3 light coat(it dries very fast) after the thrid coat remove all the masking paper and tape check for over spray(if u have any overspray a little hand polish and a soft cloth will remove it
