You plan sounds pretty good. Because I am in college I have to move my 30 gal 4x a year, but your plan sounds similiar to what I do. The main thing is get the water low, I mean down to substrate level low. Otherwise it will slosh all over the car and you will hate having to clean. Also, since you're only moving a 15 minute drive away, I wouldn't worry too much about your filter and having to re-cycle, I have to drive an hour and so far have never had to re-cycle. Lastly, you can keep your fish in one of the buckets you have your water in, less hassle not having to deal with bags.
