for shop wiring in general....
I prefer thinwall conduit because it is durable, protects the wires, is easy to string/pull another circuit, and is not "permanent" since the connections can be loosened and the tubing moved or removed. It is flexible like no other method. You can learn to bend the conduit IF you end up doing it your self.
You can bend and connect all the tubing, then hire an electrician to pull the wiring thereby insuring it will be up to code.
The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
