    There is no way ANY company will be able to get you to the top of the search engines and gaurantee it.

    The only way to do that is to pay for a "Sponsored Link" - the costs of doing so vary depending on the keywords you want top placement for.

    Your best bet is to find a company that understands how to optimize your website for the proper keywords, and to start a link campaign, and does NOT provide any gaurantee of top placement!

    You should proceed carefully.  Remember that nobody can 'place' your site in the search engines.  The search engines  select for themselves what sites they want to list.  The best you can do is to optimize (hence SEO - search engine optimization) in a way that appeals to the search engines and thus will likely result in improved rankings.  As brunobear noted, nobody can guarantee you specific rankings.  There are many individuals and companies who offer the kinds of services you are looking for that end up doing more harm than good.  A ranking guarantee is a good sign that you're dealing with someone who you don't want to let near your site.  And there are far more bad options out there than good ones.

    So, what to do?  There was a great thread about selecting an SEO company a little while back - "Reliable SEO companies" -  I would suggest that you read through it, especially the Accepted Answer by duz -
