I would make sure you see the car get loaded if you are going that route.
+1 on this. Take photos while it's being loaded, then after when you take possession of it. I see lots of damaged-car-during-transport Facebook posts.

Yep. Needed that like a second rectum. Head gasket failure. Choice was head r&r or replacement engine. Cost was about the same, so I went with a used engine with 78k miles versus the 212k plus on the existing.

The other cheap but easy ideas I came up with were a magnetic setup, and a soft touch cabinet close (only $2).
