I've moved about 5 times with fish tanks, its no easy task. I always set up a holding tank (rubbermaid is fine) with their substrate, water, driftwood, plants, filter ect at the new place. Then I would transport them and put them in the holding tank. Then empty the main tank completely, take it to the new house, set it up then transfer the fish back to their home. Be ready for a mini cycle. Don't rush it, that's when mistakes are made. Leaving the substrate is going to make that tank really heavy, you'll need 3-4 guys for that.
