Sure wait until the autumn and dig the whole thing up and take it with you.

Then dig it up anyway, and hope for the best. Water it well, take a massive rootball, and replant immediately. It won't like it, but will PROBABLY survive. You could try semi hardwood cuttings at the same time.

If the plant is quite large it would be good to prune to reduce the amount of foliage. This will result in less loss of water if you follow tippben's advice and transplant it. That's what I'd do, anyway.
