You can keep doing what you do on a 10 gal tank but not on a tank ten times bigger.

This is simple, rather than arguing back and forth about it.
If a tank upgrade is being done next week, then simply do water changes to get the levels in healthy range.
Make sure not to use the same substrate or water in the move. I would use the old tank water to rinse rock free of any debris to be on the safe side.
Small tanks, under 30 gallons, are usually recommended to avoid use of skimmers for the reason that when parameter issues raise their ugly head you can do larger than average water changes to manage them.

That answers the question if disturbing the substrate really matters. Good call Sniper.
