I have been doing a lot of reading and watching of videos of moving companies and how they move these things, and it isn't really too much trouble with the right tools. An appliance dolly, some pvc or wooden dowels and you should be good to go. Assuming you're not going up a spiral staircase or anything.
As long as you plan it all out and are safe, should be no problem. That's my plan anyway!
I hope you have someone else to help you.
We bought some 4" round sliders and had 1/2" PVC laying around the house.
Consider the FLOOR that you'll be rolling this across. Depending on the flooring, may make it harder to slide/roll across. Not only that - but it could destroy the flooring in the process. Consider getting some smooth flat sheet metal and/or plywood to protect the floor.
I would make some phone calls and see if you can get lucky and find a rigging company that'll move it cheaply. The rigging company will probably want to come out and actually see the obstacles they're dealing with.
BTW - The Franklin door will not come off.
I would definitely remove the pallet.
