You couldn't get any better if you landscaped the area yourself. Don't worry about heat, just be sure they have a water source within a quarter mile.
Put them together, just far enough apart that you can work comfortably between them. Approx. 4 feet, but precisely to your liking.
My sentiments exactly as Iddee's.
Seal them up and move them late evening or early morning before daylight and place an obstacle like a branch in front of the hives so they will be forced to reorient to the new location, which they will do, just fine.
