Hopefully "delivery as described" but if not what about looking in the newspaper's services' section. Locally it is at the bottom third of the first page of the classifieds.

Let's see, you descibed yourself as "dorky" so the range is an 18" no-frills apartment one.... <gggg> Some of the problem with moving appliances isn't the weight but the bulk and getting a handhold. An appliance dolly (2-wheeler) may be helpful (useful for moving heavy trash cans, bags of landscape rock, etc.). Just remember the bottom of the range may not be solid so be careful with placement of the dolly.
