Assuming you cannot disassemble enough to fit in your vehicle, several possibilities - a moving company could certainly do it, but probably about twice as expensive as following options:

1) got a friend with a pickup or a high-enough backed SUV with fold-down seats who is able to help lift it, and would appreciate a pizza and beer or whatever afterwards ?

2) a Hauler - this category is for junk/trash haulers who come to your house to haul away accumulated junk, but many also do moving of stuff between floors or to/from storage units, and most would certainly do this for you. For 1-man outfit if you can help lift it in, probably about $50-70 range assuming not more than a few mile drive. Near double if you cannot help lift it (I am assuming over the about 70-100 pounds which 1 man could lift onto truck. Many have trailers so 1 can should be able to handle it alone in that case.

3) a Handyman - assuming you can help load it - probably about same cost

4) rent a U-Haul truck or trailer to move it - about $30-50 for less than a day's use.

Be sure to check with store if they need it disassembled to take it back (generally yes if came that way), and be sure to return with all original packaging, accessories and cords, instruction manual, warranty form, tools, etc that came with it.

I presumed you have permission to return this - you don't want to get there and have them turn you away and have to pay to haul it back home. Depending on why returning, it may have to be shipped back to the manufacturer instead.
