So you are debating whether to pay someone or DIY remove your wood stove.  You should give this a go only if:

1) There are at least 2 people available
2) All involved are healthy enough to do heavy lifting

Otherwise pay someone to avoid any possible injury.  

You will need the following:

* Screw Driver
* Hammer
* Furniture Dolly
* Working gloves
* ladder (and access to the roof where the chimney is located)
