Moving an Rhododendron

Any advice for moving a few Rhododendrons? They are approx. 3-4' tall and wide.

Thank you

Speaking from experience....
Dig around the 'root ball' a decent distance...and remove.
Replant where you want with a bigger sized hole and some good dirt. Water..and let it grow.
From here...we've had no problems moving Rhodos..they are very hardy and will grow..and bloom in the following year or 2.
At least that's what we've encountered....!
Good luck.
