transplanting lilacs

Hi when is the best time to transplant a lilac tree. Currently in a more shade than sun spot-want to give it more sun.

The best time to do this is while it's still dormant in the very early spring. Once the plant begins to leaf out it would be best to wait till late fall after it goes dormant again.
