I want to have a local shop build my PC with the components I have selected.

I have no interest in doing it myself.

What questions should I be asking them?

What do I want to make sure of before I trust someone to build the PC?

Obviously, I would ask about fees and time frame, but I have only had a custom build done once. That was 10 years ago and a lot has changed. I want to be comfortable with whomever I use and would appreciate any advice.

There isn't a whole lot to discuss in you've specified ALL of the components.

I imagine it's safe to assume they can tighten some screws, apply thermal paste to the cpu/cooler and plug things together. You might question them on whether they can keep the cabling tidy and ensure it doesn't disrupt a smooth airflow.

Do you expect them to install an operating system and any software?
