From previous experience with my local company you use your own pallet. Make sure the pallet can be put on a pallet truck and jacked up. If the pallet has planks across the bottom you won't be able to move it.
Give Codders a ring if you have any concern about sizes.

Even if you have a telehandler at your end they'll need to get it on the pallet truck, I'd be suprised if they take a pallet with lats on the bottom?

If well packed, You dont nesseseraly need a pallet. I purhased a Aerotec 420 from UK recently. It was packed in its own bag + wraped in the aditional cover + as last in a few black garbage bags+ duct tape. Everything went smooth an as the size was smaller and total weight much less, saved plenty on the freight. Handling was also easy, didi it by my own. With a pallet more tricky. But, agree, might be safer on a pallet.....
