I can't decide which one to get.

The guys over at Maingear are AWESOME! They were very helpful and knowledgeable and build a great product. However, they're more expensive and I get less gear for the same amount.

The guys over at Origin have been slouching in comparison, however, there price is way lower... when you include free shipping (only have to ship the monitor).

Which one should I go for? I want quality, help from the team etc.

ORIGIN: $5,630 + shipping for monitor $5,700

I mean, you're comparing pretty high-end systems..... There's got to be a minimum $1,500 markup on either system so, if you have to go the pre-built route, I'd opt for the cheaper of the two, personally.

Just ran some quick numbers, definitely ~$1,500 markup on the Origin before some of the bells & whistles (sleeved cables, RGB fans etc).

While I'd stick with my "cheapest of the two" answer, both seem like a horrible value in honesty. Even accounting for warranty, that's one expensive piece of mind.

I appreciate it. It’s not your money but I just want a reliable company

As far as SI's go, they both have a farily good reputation - they're higher-end boutique, using quality parts and, from what I've heard, their customer service/warranty is pretty solid. I don't have first hand experience though.
