    I want a internal SSD, but can't do it myself. Who, reputably, can I look for to do it?

    Apple service provider in your area, or any reputable shop you feel comfortable going too.

    What year is your iMac?
    If you have USB, just add an EXTERNAL USB3 SSD and set it up to be the boot drive.

    The Mac will run MUCH faster, and you'll never even notice that you're "booted externally".

    You DON'T need to pay anyone to do this.
    You can do it yourself, easily.

    But the OP specifically said he wants an "internal" SSD. That can be done, but certainly not "easily."

    Nor cheaply.

    And the OP may not even be aware of the option to run an SSD as an external drive.

    The OP's sig indicates it is probably a "2015 27" iMac w/16GB, 5K"

    I think it has a proprietary blade SSD, so you could replace the HDD with an SSD.

    Stupid Apple.
