Set up the new tank and add additional live rock and some sand, because you will need additional rock and sand in any event, and let it cycle. I would do some water changes from your current tank and add to the new one. Also take some of the sand from the current tank and this also to the new one to speed up the cycle. Then move everything across once cycle is complete. This is the safest way.

Bud 1st things 1st. Sort out your bracing at the top of that tank in the 1st pic. Try put lengthways bracing in and remove that big center brace. Rather add thinner braces width ways it will assist with getting more light in the tank.
