Movers for (very) heavy items

We have an elliptical which is extremely heavy and we would need it moved out of apartment. We don't expect a regular moving company would be able to do it, since the store that we bought the elliptical from sent 4 men to deliver the elliptical, and it might still be too heavy for all of them.

Does anyone know of companies that have instruments/tools to move extremely heavy items out of homes?

Re: Movers for (very) heavy items

Not answering your question, but may I ask what model you have, I've never seen ellipticals that could not be carried by two people. (Tho law is likely to have set a max weight to be carried by an employer, something a man with a van doesn't really care about)

Re: Movers for (very) heavy items

Yes, there are movers who specialize in moving heavy items, such as pianos, billiards tables.

The firm I recommended in the above post link is worth calling.
