AL does not have a category for on-site mechanics - and because of the minimum trip charge would almost certainly cost significantly more than taking it to an oil change place (shudder) or the Dealer to have done. Home mechanic would also not likely use the same brand oil that is in the vehicle now - and it is a good idea to not change around the fluid brands in a vehicle because not all brands get along well together.

Engine oil and oil filter change can run typically about $30-50 depending on where you go and the engine size (larger engines hold a quart or two more oil) - more in the $40-50 range at a Dealer, and can run as high as $50-70 if you use synthetic oil like Mobile 1. Plus probably $10-90 for air filter if it needs changing at same time and depending on whether you go with cheapest or highest efficiency filter.

IF you are at the mileage interval where transmission, transfer case, differential(s) and/or any other fluid needs changing as well (and maybe some greasing as well on some years/models) then you can be looking at as much as $300-600 range to do them all at one time, and if coolant needs changing and engine needs a tuneup (new plugs, injector check or changeout) and serpentine belt change, can run into the $800-1200 range depending on make and model and whether you go to a regular auto repair shop or a dealer.
