One option is to do the move with Finder and then in LR, right-click the now-missing folder and do Find Missing Folder. This is what some of us long-time users do as a matter of course whenever we're moving larger numbers of photos. There have been very infrequent but persistent reports over the years of bulk moves in LR losing files:

Above is an issue that has been around since the earliest days off Lr, and so far as I'm aware Adobe has made little, if any, attempt to fix. Also, worth mentioning that back in the day, I was told that only 'limited' error checking is carried out as part of the move precess.
There was also a time when large scale files moves carried out within Lr was extremely slow. This aspect has seen improvements in recent times, as has support for working across a network.
Thank you Ian and John, both of your answers are helpful and appreciate your time in responding. I prefer to move my files around within Finder anyway, so this is how I will proceed.
