I have a medium sized olive. Stands about 8 feet tall. It is in the wrong place (ground too wet over winters). I need to move it. When is the best time?

In the UK the best time to move any tree is the autumn when it is most dormant. 8 feet sounds quite big to me. There must be a video online somewhere of people digging up a tree - biggest rootball you can manage, cloth around it, well-watered before and after etc.
