New tank transfer!

So im going to be buying a new fish tank today, 75 gallons, with a sump. I want to transfer all of my current 39 gallon over. Could i just mix up some new saltwater put it in, then put some sand in, and once it clears could i start pulling my liverock and everything out of my tank? If its at all possible to re use my sand id love to !

Your plans just fine although with your old sand, depending on how old your tanks is, dsb or not, and substrate maintenance, I would wash your old sand before reusing it (won't be live afterwards but better to rid it of all the built up detritus).

Just be sure to monitor your parameters for a week or two with a water change on standby.
