If you have WHM root or reseller access on the new machine and either WHM or cPanel access on the old machine, on the new server you can use either WHM > Transfers > Copy an account from another server or WHM > Transfers > Copy an account from another server with account password to transfer the account.

If you only have cPanel access on both machines, then on the old machine you can use cPanel > Backups > Download or Generate a Full Website Backup area to get a backup. After you have the backup file, you can upload it to your account on your new cPanel account and as your hosting provider to restore the account for you there. You won't be able to restore the account using a backup with cPanel only access.

I need to move one website content to another CPanel location.
I have access to both Cpanels. How to do for only one website?

I already explained this above. You will need to make a backup in cPanel > Backups > Download or Generate a Full Website Backup to obtain a copy of the backup file for that account. After you have, download it using FTP, then upload to your new site at your new host with FTP, then tell the new host the location of the backup file and ask them to restore it for your account. You cannot restore the account on the new machine because you won't have access to do that when you only have cPanel access.

If by website you didn't mean the full account but only one site on the account, that simply isn't possible with cPanel backups. It is account backups that are provided not domain only backups.
