Bamboo and pot shape

We have some large bamboo in large circular pots. 

I wish to move them into large troughs to go against our house wall. 

How do I do that without hurting them?  They have grown into a circular base and will need pulling apart to fit the rectangular trough.

    Maylane, bamboo appear to be fairly tolerant plants in my experience. They can ransack and take over so I keep mine in a pot fact its just got so big I have repotted it in an old leaky waterbutt to contain it! 

    My bamboo got hacked from a lady's garden that wanted rid of it, put it on the roofrack of the van and stuck it in a pot. It got established immediately with no diva like demands image
