By me, there's "Two men and a truck". But you'd be better having them move a room-full of furniture, not just one piece (economy of scale).

I've had a couple of back surgeries myself, and my days of picking up anything bulky or over maybe fifty pounds is over as well. You'd do well to make a friend out of neighbor's kid, or buy modular stuff so you can move it yourself. As someone said, many recliners break into two pieces, but the base is still a hassle if you're bringing it up a flight of stairs.

Do you work? Find a chair you want and ask a co-worker for an hour's help...buy them dinner!

you could try websites like TaskRabbit, Thumbtack, or Dolly where you can hire people for a small job, and specify you need someone who has their own truck

I am not paying $200+ to move a chair from 10 miles away. I want to buy something used, either from someone online or from a thrift store. How do I get it home? I live in the Tri Cities, in WA.
You might see try Task Rabbit

1. Decide what kind of recliner (style, price) that you want. At one time I may have considered buying a used, upholstered piece of furniture, but not now, too many cooties, & CL has too many freaks & frauds, IMO. I know there is at least one Big Lots in your area. They have a lot of furniture of good quality & decent prices. I bought a Lazy Boy brand loveseat for less than $300 at Big Lots, and they had a lot of recliners. Check local mom & pop furniture stores, they might do free or cheap delivery, especially since the pandemic has crushed a lot of small businesses. And there's always Wal-Mart.

2. Two posters suggested renting a pickup truck at Home Depot. That's a good idea, & there are 2 HDs in Tri-Cities.

3. While at HD, buy a handtruck to move your recliner. You can use it for future projects or moves, and just store in a closet in you don't have a garage or outdoor storage.
