Tiger lilies are bulbs and are best moved when they are not actively growing. Very early spring or late fall would be the best times. Dig them up carefully taking as much of a rootball as possible and replant immediately at the same depth as they grew before. Water well to settle any air pockets and water as needed until they become reestablished.
