transplanting & moving iris

I will be moving from NY to Nashville, TN sometime this fall. I have irises I want to take with me. Should I dig them up now or wait until closer to when I move? What should I do with them after I dig them up? How should they be stored? Anything else I should do or be aware of. Thanks very much.
