River Arts District, in 2007, I've been carting all of my pots back to the salt kiln at my house. This photo shows how I do that. Years ago, I built a wooden platform, so that my dogs could ride in the the back of the car and see out the windows (pet barrier is also part of that system, not shown). I use that flat platform as a sturdy base for transport. I line the pots up, as shown, and very carefully cover them with 2-3 layers of packing blankets. This weighs the pots down, minimizing any movement. I am very aware of the route to my kiln. I avoid train tracks, pot holes, sharp turns, and rush hour. Knock on wood, but over the past 3 years, all I've lost is a small 1# teacup during transport. Remember, I once-fire, so no bisque-for-me.
