1. Unlock existing domains
2. Get transfer code from existing registrar
3. Give new registrar transfer code
4. Transfer domain.
5. Pay money.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiC-rl5HRwo From godaddy to bluehost
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYEnbkMVgb4 From godaddy to name.com

These two videos describe the process from godaddy to another registrar, the first being rather verbose while the second not so much. Of course, you don't have to use either Bluehost or Name.com, but the necessary steps are the same: unlocking, auth codes, verification codes. Naturally, the checkout process will vary from registrar to registrar.

And domain registrars are always willing to help you transfer domains to their site so look for their support whether it's an online chat, phone number, or faq.

Now I actually have a justifiable reason to jump ship. It couldn't have happened at a worse time with the holiday season but I'll make it work before the start of 2012.
