I've sold my classic to someone 250 miles away - what's the best way to send/receive the money?

I’ve sold my classic Citroen DS to someone in Doncaster and the car is in Exeter. How do we safely conclude sending/receiving funds and car?

Bank transfer is the best way to go. The buyer pays the money directly into your account, once the funds have cleared you can go ahead and arrange collection.
