Below are links to a couple of prior responses that might help you - other possibilities include Handyman or Haulers in Search the List - which latter category generally lists companies/ people who come and haul away trash like backyard junk, tearout debris, or junk left in attic or basement after prior owner moved, but they will just as willingly (though likely a minimum charge) just move what you want from one place in the house to another.

Regular Moving companies will do that too - but minimum charge is likely to be a couple of hours for two people, so probably more expensive - but maybe not if you schedule it so a crew hits your place first thing in the day or last thing in afternoon onthe way to or from another job - particularly with companies who provide packing and loading/unloading serivices for other long-haul moving companies.

You could also call a place that sells that type equipment - they probably have a company that handles delivering and setting up newly purchased equipment for them, or have their own crew for that and might do it for a fee.

A couple of thoughts - when you call, tell them if you are able and fit to be an extra body to help move it, and look up the weight on the web to tell them, along with general overall dimensions. Also, measure first to be sure it will fit down stairs and around corners - I have seen many cases where furniture or exercise equipment made it part way up or down stairs and then could not go around a turn and had to either be taken back to where it was for partial disassembly, or either the item or the wall/railings "speed modified" in place (or doorway taken out) to get it through. This is VERY common when people change doorways or add trim and molding and railings or new staircase railings and balconies in houses after they have moved in, and don't think about getting their larger and bulkier possessions back out in the future - especially in houses without full-size sliding glass or french doors back, which are Mover's lifesavers.
