I have just gotten my forum migrated to Kunena. I was using a very old version of Webwiz.
The migration was done by www.gconverter.com and I'm very satisfied about the conversion.
It will cost you around $100 but it saved me a lot of money hiring a PHP developer to do it by hand.
So if you can afford it and don't want to spend much time it is a good option.

They can provide you with a table of all the old message-IDs and the new ones, so you can take care of all the Google links to your forum (very important).

For security reasons they generate a new password for each user. They provide a mail tool to mail all your users. This has been working well for many users, I had some trouble with it. My advice: test carefully. I was lucky enough to have email marketing software for my newsletters, so I ended up using that software to send all my users a mail with their new details.

If you take that in account, I can surely recommend this service.

See my new forum? Have a look at www.fan.tv/forum
