The easiest way for me....was to have new water at the site ready to go. I used well cleaned garbage cans with RO/DI water in them. If you want to move the water with the tank......Get a truck and a Mag 12 or a mag 18 and a garden hose. Splice the hose to rid the brass/copper fittings and use hose barbs so you dont ruin your live rock. Then just pump the water into the garbage cans that are already in the truck. :) Then when its time to refill your tank.......same exact thing. Pump it from your garbage cans to your tank.....its certainly a two person job. Your fish will be fine in buckets....But if you were to move that tank with buckets......you would need 25-30 buckets.......and your never going to use those again....thats why I say large trash cans. You can buy two really big ones and use them to do your water changes from now on........Thats what I did..I have one for saltwater......and one for freshwater(top offs) Then your moving easily....AND you are making your own water at home easily. :)
