Moving of course would be the normal Search the List category - a normal local Moving and Transfer company like would do any local move.

Cheaper, but generally do not have the padding material and are not used to handling large items without damaging them or the walls, are the Hauling companies - the couple of guys with a truck type junk hauling companies who commonly also do moving of stuff within a house - to/from attic or basement for instance. Maybe $200-300 range for this type of move.

And of course, some friends with pickup and/or trailer, or rented U-Haul box truck, in exchange for some pizza and beer or a movie night or whatever - but not insured, trained or experienced in this sort of work in most cases, and no recourse for damage.

For the type of items you want to move, both large and heavy and something you probably do not want scratched or broken - I would go with a normal Moving company. I would guess, assuming they fit through the doors OK and you do not have sawful stairs to negotiate, probably about $300-500 for this job - though commonly available on 2-3 day notice, not next day if this is garage sale stuff that needs immediate moving.
