Their are couple of ways to move site collection to other farm.

  1. Use the backup and restore method of site collection. Make sure both farm at the same version level.
  2. You can use dtabase backup method using sql server.
  3. You can use content deployment method but is usually use when you have an authoring farm n publishing farm...this is on going process. If one time activity then this approach is not good.
