    Dump the SQL
    Go to your sites Tools > export (xml)
    and copy the folders and do the installation on your new host update the sql, and import the xml file
    (While updating sql make sure to properly do find and replace on DB from your old domain name to new ) as wordpress php db uses serialization strings -- in lot of cases the theme tends to loose widgets (specially the text) (http://interconnectit.com/124/search-and-replace-for-wordpress-databases/ )
