Create keyboard shortcuts to move windows without Compiz

I'm running Ubuntu Mate 16.04 and I love it right out of the box. The only thing I need on it is the ability to move my windows to different monitors using the keyboard.

For a few weeks I've been using CompizConfig Settings Manager and it works, but Compiz causes a long list of problems on my system that disappear when I disable it. Compiz is a big package and all I want is the ability to move my windows to a different monitor. All other features are already built into Ubuntu Mate 16.04 LTS keyboard shortcuts menu (switch workspaces, move window to workspace, tile left, right, horizontal, vertical, etc).

Move window east (right) side of screen and Move window west (left) side of screen for some reason doesn't work on all applications (in my case the first application i noticed was firefox, but chrome and others work).

Is there a guide that shows how to make your own keyboard shortcuts? I found a site where someone made their own for Xubuntu. While I'm trying to figure out what they did, does anyone have a simple method for creating keyboard shortcuts that move windows between monitors?
