Default Tube Tester in Ohio

I came across an RCA amp with a bunch of tubes and im not sure of their condition. Is there anyone in Ohio that could test the tubes for me? I would obviously be willing to pay for shipping both ways and even for the service?

I'm not sure what the costs are or what tubes are possible to test but if someone could clue me in, I would really appreciate it. Still learning about tubes and this is my first tube amp. I have the following tubes;

4x 6BQ5
2x 6FQ7
1x 5AS4A Rectifier tube. Not sure if this one needs/should be tested?

If you're near a large city there'll be some audio fan with a tester.
It should be a transconductance tester, ideally. Be sure to wrap
each tube well in bubble pak, and then double box if you ship them.
Yes, test the rectifier too.

I'm in between Cleveland and Akron. I hope to find someone locally, it would be fun to see the process.

There's the Cleveland Regional Audio Club, in Wakeman when last heard of.
