Anyone ever transplanted Privet in January? I have a fast growing evergreen

Today (in Zone 5) it's going to be in the 60's. The ground is wet and
certainly not frozen. However, by Friday it will be down close to zero.
If I were to transplant these Privets, would they live?

Around here it is a declared noxious weed, we have poisoning parties in the
spring to stop it taking over the landscape. Oh well to each his own.
Sorry about that. I have had privet for years and. yes, it does tend to
spread. However, I have lots of room and I intend to put it on the
northwest edge of my woods.
I have a small shack there that becomes highly visible in winter when the
trees and shrubs lose their leaves. I prefer to hide it.
Would someone answer my question please?
It probably will live.
I live in Zone 8 and my experience with privet was to cut a bush into
foot long pieces and plant about 2/3rds of the piece below the ground

including a fridge, microwave oven, propane heat, stereo and so on. No Tv,
but I do use a two-way radio to contact the outside world. I might sleep
out there tonight. It is only supposed to go down to 1 0 or 12 degrees.
I have planted the privet which is evergreen and if I could just get the
English Ivy to speed it up a little no one would notice that shack unless
they bumped into it.
