Usually friends or family - maybe with a pizza and beer promise afterwards.

Professionally, Moving (normal household goods movers like local Transfer and Storage companies) would be the normal Search the List category for this service - and best prepared with moving blankets and such if needed, and probably least likely to break it - but commonly around $100-150 minimum charge and sometimes more for a 2-3 man crew for a few minute job.

Others - Handymen of course, but they are usually one-man outfits so would mean you and him would have to be able to lift and carry it (including any stairs) - so if a large table that does not fold up or slide apart into pieces, or heavy table that probably does not work well. Some handymen have a helper, or another one who they can call on for jobs needing tow people. Commonly around $50-100 minimum service call charge per person.

Hauling is another viable Search the List category - the two-guys-and-a-truck type junk haulers, who commonly will do this sort of in-house moving around of heavy stuff too - but again commonly around $75-150 minimum charge and sometimes more.

Another option (with at leat one other person - partly disassermble it. Large tables usually either slide apart at the center (tables with insert leaves) - usually there is a catch underneath which needs to be released to slide it completely apart. Large round tables usually have screws or bolts fromthe underside to allow you to lift the top off. Of course, if a large glass-top table you have to handle the glass real carefully - both in removal and reassembly and in carrying it.
