There's a lot of nonsense talked about moving Peonies. They're not difficult if the usual basic steps are taken to ensure as little shock to the plant- as with any other plant that's getting moved. The main issue is that people plant peonies too deep. Keep them fairly shallow.
As the others say, as good a root ball as you can manage, but I agree with nut - the ruddy conifer roots may cause a bit of a problem.
