What your looking for is a shop that does a high volume low pressure blast and a shop that has been doing it for a very long time.It's a feel in terms of the distance used while blasting.You can do some damage to the surface if you not sensitive to what is being blasted.The other downfall is to "try" to get all the sand out of all the corners and inside the frame.It makes the type of primer even more important.So if the pricing seems high,you might want to look into why.

The other thing I want to add is you might want to do whatever welding you need to do before blasting.A frame that hasn't been completely cleaned to weld isn't a fun time.
