There are instructions in the manual on how to move servers - http://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/moving_servers You do not need impex to move your site.

What do you mean? Those are the exact same steps you would take to move servers if you were using vB3.x also.

Post a request in the paid service requests.

Are you moving your site to a new server, or you just want to move very specific content to a new database? or? The details are lacking.
