Transplanting Strawberries Empty Transplanting Strawberries

I have a 4x4 bed full, actually OVERFULL, of strawberries. They do not produce very well and I think that is due to the overcrowding. I would like to thin them down to 1 per square. The ones I pull up I would like to transplant in the ground so they don't go to waste. 

When is the best time to transplant them or do they not do well when transplanted?

Treat your strawberries as Bi annual plants ..( they fruit every second season )   split the plants and re site the splits elsewhere lest you get strawberry root sawfly  laying their eggs in the roots . A lot of gardeners say cut the flowers off the newly planted strawbs so they get really strong roots for a good crop in that second year . 
 Next year split of a few more plants from stock in the new bed to get your second strawberry bed going . Then it is a case of always move the old bed at the end of the second years fruiting season .
  It works the same when you're using  tubs of strawberries too.
