They are just mailboxes. Therefore you just move them in the regular way.
The only issue is that they are often larger than regular mailboxes, so could take longer to do.

The TechNet article on the process -

is very light because the process is very straight forward. One of the many advantages of the modern public folders.

If you want to move the public folder to another public folder mailbox on the other hand, then I would suggest reading the appropriate TechNet article on it.

Again not very complex, you just need to have the target public folder mailbox created first.

Simon.
