Another method to think about, might work for you, might not.
MG model B not rare, but not real common either. You want it to get there in good shape. Not knocking the independant haulers, just another possibility.
Have the seller strap it down on a pallet so it can't move around, with plenty of cushion material. Build a plywood box around it for protection. Mark top & sides "TOP LOAD ONLY". Then call his local agent for an LTL carrier such as Yellow, ABF, Con-Way etc. If that carrier doesn't serve your area, they will hand it off to one that does. It will be insured in case of damage or loss. You will also have a local agent to handle any possible claims. Expect about a week in transit. If more than one carrier is involved & there is a claim, they share the cost, just like they share the revenue, but the delivering carrier actually writes the check.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeWhen I used to ship stuff regularly NO TOP LOAD meant do not put anything on top of it. but I agree with building a strong plywood box.
