Moving bees

I caught a swarm a couple days ago directly into a brood box (is that the right term; I don't even know). Anyway, I haven't moved the box since the capture, but I need to. The spot I've selected is about 25 feet away from where they've been the past 2 days. Is this an okay distance to move them? Will they become disoriented with that distance even though they've only been in their current spot 2 days? Should I move them incrementally? Throw all your good advice my way, please.
