If it's 2'6" high it should move quite easily.  I would do it now while the soil is warm amd the weather is still relatively mild.  Make sure you dig around the plant enough to,get a good rootball.  Dig the recipient hole first so the move is fairly quick.

You can add a mycorrhizal powder to the base of the hole amd rest the plant directly on it.  It's supposed to aid rapid root formation.  I would also add compost of some sort to the soil when you backfill plus an organic fertiliser 

Water it very well.  It should be fine
