This is my question of the day and yes, we could probably hire someone else to do it, but you know men, they want to do it themselves. (yes, I said it). So, I am throwing this question out there.
Stand at the top and just push !!!! Oh wait a minute, you don't want it to get damaged or damage something else.....
If you are talking outside stairs, sometimes they can be removed and a lifting device can lower it to the basement floor.
For interior steps some have reinforced the steps themselves first and then either covered the steps with something like planks to slide it down. Now to carefully slide it down the steps, some have attached a chainfall or similar device to something solid in the area to slowwwwwly slide it down the steps. Others have run a cable or strapping through the house if there is direct access to a door and used a vehicle to slowwwwly lower it down the steps.
NO ONE AND I REPEAT NO ONE should be on the downhill side and thing they can slowly come towaqrd them where they can hold it back.
Post some pictures of your house stairs and the area before and after the stairway and we can better offer advice.
