Need to move a rose bush

Due to construction upcoming this week, I need to move a mature rose bush. My soil is very sandy & I know it won't hold together well when the bush is dug up. Any tips would be most appreciated.

Rose Bush

Wrap the root ball in burlap as soon as you raise it out of the ground. Pin the burlap together with large nails. Keep the roots moist until re-planted.
