yea, you can transfer easily but its a bit harder if you have additional services with godaddy.

if its just the domain you can create an account with an alternative provider, apply to purchase the domain and then follow their instructions on how to get permission via godaddy to transfer it.

NOTE: make sure you move any DNS records across or you risk losing existing services

if you have additional services (webmail, webhosting) its more complicated as you need to move them across too.

no additional services with godaddy but what about domain name age with seo?

Will it be 9 years 1 day old or will it be 0 years 1 day old.

Domain name registration length is a myth.
SEO scoring is not affected by length of registration and most search engines have publicly confirmed it.
