Unless you have some friends who can be trusted with moving stuff like that in exchange for some pizza and beer say, then you want Movers (your Search the List category) - commercial Moving and Storage company - the same people who would pack up and unpack your stuff from a long-distance move truck. Minimum crew charge probably about $150-250.

BTW - DON'T let them move the clock with the weights in it - they hang from chains, usually just on hooks - take them off before moving, being sure to mark which goes where (they are not always the same weight). Also, in many cases the pendulum unhooks easily too. You do NOT want them banging around in the case or breaking the glass in the door. When set back up, rehang them, then start pendulum swinging again to restart the clock.

Sewing machine - if an inset thype - where the machine sits in the table in a recess, usually it comes out easy and should not be carried in the table. Some very old ones were bolted to a wrought iron table, but most detach easily. You do NOT want the sewing machine bailing out of the table mid-flight down the stairs.
