Moving - conventional transfer and storage and moving companies - would be the Angies List Search the List category for this - but the Commercial Equipment or Specialty moving division, not the household goods moving division of the company. These are the people who move industrial machinery, mainframe computers, etc - specialists in moving heavy and/or fragile or high value goods.

If they say it is too much for them, or your doorways are too small to allow their forklift or self-propelled hydraulic pallet movers or moving deck in, then a Crane and Rigging company (no Angies List category for that) would be your next choice - to use special indoor handling equipment for heavy machinery and such.

It is also possible, if this is a commercially bought oven, that your favorite restaurant equipment supply company does moves like this or knows a company that specializes in restaurant moves and setup - again, there is not an Agnies List category for that.

If this is a commercially made over, check with manufacturer on recommended support and bracing during the move, and they may recommend foam rubber or even airbag support under it in transit to avoid cracking the masonry as the truck bounces when it hits road bumps and potholes.

Considering your location, it is also possible it had earthquake bracing put in when it was installed - inclulding possibly grouted-in floor anchors - so be sure to check for those and get them removed or cut before trying to pick it up.

And don't forget to make sure it is insured adequately during the move - your normal homeowner's (if you are going whole hog on a personal oven) or business property insurance (if this is for a business) will commonly NOT cover it during a move.
