Transplanting deciduous trees now

What's my best plan of attack. Really want to take a couple of trees with me when I move house that have only bin in the ground since winter 2007. Weeping cherry/flowering peach/ornamental pear?

how long have you got? My thoughts...

root prune to pot or managable size with spade but leave in situ until time to go. in the meanwhile keep the water up with seasol to keep shock to a minimum and at last minute put in pot or wrap root ball in hessian and/or tarp and transport to new location. Plant ASAP & water again with seasol.
