I was just admiring the acers at RHS Wisley yesterday and thinking how good they would look in my garden. As you say though I have seen the prices for mature specimens and that isn't going to happen any time soon.
Try local garden centres, they will have the expertise and equipment. Or maybe Freecycle. Now is probably the worst time to move them, delaying until leaf fall would be so much better if at all possible.
