Take the fence & wings off strap it to the appliance dolly & with one person helping you move it. Remember they are not as tall as your band-saw & the weight is lower down & a bit better balanced. I'd leave the motor in if not all the weight will be on top. I unloaded my Unisaw from my truck (I hauled it laying on its back on a piece of carpet in my pickup with the bottom toward the back end of the truck) I just took a hold of the carpet & slid it to the back with the tailgate unhooked from the supports it angled down & the saw & carpet slid right down to the ground with me just retarding its speed to a crawl. I then rocked it onto a 4 wheel furniture dolly & ratchet strapped it tight & wheeled it to the shop & assembled it & set it up by myself.
I don't think that with one person helping you you'll have any problem getting the saw down stairs. If nothing else put boards on the stairs & a piece of carpet under the saw wrapped so that it goes around the base & top & down the back side & ratchet strapped on that will slide on the boards & tie a rope so you & your friend can retard the speed of the saw sliding down the boards & just slide it down . If you want it to slide easier wax the boards.
