Doing it yourself is easy insurance.
Get plenty of stick on weights.

Don't use stick on weights for spoke wheels, use something like this;

I have those and use them on dirt bike wheels. They don't want to hold onto GS spokes.
Nope.

Hey, it's a discontinued HF tire changer. Mine has earned close to it's weight gold over the last 15 years. Added the Mojo lever and nylon clamps to it, too.
Be nicer if it came with the strap to keep the wheel from turning in the clamp, though.

Correction: Just checked and the M/C Tire changer attachment appears to be BACK.

I routinely remove the seal and the speedo drive if present (RT) to ensure the cone seats properly. Easy to do....

I also have a MP balancer w/all the adapters. It's tits on!
I once placed a penny (double sided Scotch tape) on a MP balanced wheel and it showed as out of balance.
Best to dither the balancer (or the platforms) a bit to overcome what micro friction there may be in the MP bearings.
A penny weighs 2.5 grams. Like I said, "tits on".
