Generally no, unless turn-around time were a factor.

I might think about it a little more if there were a good company in the Vancouver area, otherwise no.

I hesitate in answering this poll as it is unclear (and perhaps I'm just naive to the matter) about what differentiates a "premium" grading service from a "regular" grading service aside from a higher price. Are we talking a faster turnaround time? More flashy holders? JPG scans of your note? Detailed descriptions of the factors that decided the assigned grade? High-res images of defects?

If the only differentiating factor is the price, then I say no. What am I getting for the extra money?

That's a poll question of its own.  Not one I was planning on asking but a good one nonetheless.  When I pose the next poll question, it will become more clear what I am driving at.  ;)
