What is it with people and trees? Sell it? - Why don't you put a price tag on it or something 'bonkers' -

idea of selling it came from the amount going on ebay.

Agree with Magicbeans - can't imagine an attempt at moving will be successful. Also, even if you found a company to try it, I recon it'd be quite expensive.

Just found this on a search - someone asked the same question a few years back:

Re: Moving a mature monkey puzzle tree
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Yes, it can be done, but it is very, very expensive, and also ideally needs 2 or 3 years of pretreatment root pruning before the move.

Keep it and make some money from selling the seeds

No it can't really be moved without a lot of preparation as already stated. Be prepared for it to grow taller and wider, they are a lovely tree but do need maintenance in a smaller garden

You would have to cut through the roots - chances of survival replanted are about 50-50. If you have to manhandle and transport any distance then odds are a lot less.

This one was twelve years old when I sold my house.
Was planted when my first child was born.
I soooooooooooooooooooooooooo wanted to take this with me, but too much preparation was needed.
It stayed, it got cut down, I was soooooooo sad.

Chop it down and plant another would probably be easiest and cheapest option.
