When can I transplant Juniper?

We recently purchased a home in SC.  There are some mature juniper plants that I would like to move to NC, which is in a colder area (10 degrees or so) and I need to know when I can move them successfully.  Our soil here is very sandy and the NC soil is more clay like.
