Your going to tear down your tank to move so any rooted plants in substrate can be removed and placed in a bucket with tank water and a tight lid for the move plus you get to re aquascape and clean up your plants. I'm assuming you are going to move your fish too so the can go in the same bucket and benefit each other.

Put your substrate, drift wood, rocks in a second bucket with some tank water to keep them alive.

5 gallon buckets from the DIY work great for this if your moving a great distance more then two days you will need a air stone and pump you can get battery operated ones.
