I had an individual account with Scottrade for a number of years. Then several years later converted the account to be in the name of our trust. I don't recall any problems with the conversion.
If you do need to transfer the account I suggest you contact the new broker telling them what you want to do and they should be able to take care of any details. There may be an account closure fee charged by Sharebuilder. You should tell the new broker what your intentions are but they may suggest you make the transfer as an individual account and then convert it to trust as a second step.
The Discount Brokers board may have additional guidance regarding what brokers will accept a trust account.
