No way to safely move the tank without emptying it.
I managed to do it just a month ago. Moved both of my planted tanks, an 8gal and a 10gal, and put them up on reinforced shelves. All I did was take out the fish (left the shrimp in, too difficult to catch them all), lower the water level to about 1 inch (I stored the old water in bottles and poured most of it back in afterwards), and I had 2 people help lift and move them (twice in total - from their old stand to the kitchen table, and then from the table up onto the shelves). It took hours (the shelves had to be installed while the fish tanks were "on standby" in the kitchen), and I had to keep misting the plants to stop them from drying out, but in the end they were all fine. It can be done, but you will need an extra pair of hands.
Note: All the animals survived and thrived afterwards. The shrimp were a bit shaken up and went into hiding, but they recovered within a few days. There was a lot of gunk and mud that got kicked up from the substrate - I spent the whole next day vacuuming it up ?I dosed Prime every day for the first week afterwards, just to be on the safe side, and did more water changes than usual to combat any ammonia that might have shown up as a result of all the commotion - and then I went back to my normal schedule. Every plant and animal was fine.
