Crepe Myrtle blooms #851376

I submitted this question a week or so ago and am hoping for a response - is that possible? We need your advice on our Crepe Myrtle which is not blooming this fall. Planted it three years ago - bloomed the first fall with nice flowers. Since then, no blooms although the small tree has dark green foliage and looks very healthy. It is possible that is not getting enough sun in the spot where we planted it - might that be the problem? If so, we'd like to transplant it to a sunnier spot and are hoping for your advice on when and how to transplant the tree. It is small - about 4 feet tall. When is the best time to move it and what precautions should we take in uprooting it? Thank you!
