About 2 years ago a mature Acacia ( not sure but would guess about 7 years old as was rather expensive ) was planted in what has turned out to be the wrong position, now I would like to move it & as I have access to a mini digger would love to know if , when & how this would be possible.

Acacia is very poor at moving. Even though just two years planted it is likely to get a severe set-back. On the plus side, the fact hat it was potted, relatively mature, and planted just two years ago might help.

The chances of success are poor.  If you are going to risk it, try in early March as growth begins.
