Moving sago palms

Is it ok to move 30 gallon sago palms that were planted a couple months ago right now in the dead heat of summer?

They are in pots now and need to be moved about 30ft into the ground.

I don't even know what a Sago palm is, but I can't imagine what the issue would be as long as the root ball inside the pot isn't disturbed with a lot of shaking from the loader moving it...
Is it coming out of the pot when placed in the ground???

Would the sagos have done ok in the pots? The whole reason for moving them is the homeowner was told by someone the sagos wouldn't live in the pots.

The roots had to be crammed down in the pot. They have no room to spread. If I knew how to post a pic on my phone I would but we had to chop some of the roots off with a shovel to get the 30 gallon plants to go down in the pots.
