Moving Apartments

I currently have a camponotus Queen who started laying eggs about 9 days ago. I am about to move to a new apartment about 20 minutes away and I’m wondering what the best option for transporting her is. I was planning to put her in a shoe box with socks around her in the cab of the car, but I am still worried the vibrations will stress her out and she will eat her brood. I will be moving in 5 days so it will be 2 weeks total since she laid her first egg. She currently has 9 eggs in a test tube set up in a drawer. Does anyone have advice for transporting new queens?

Thank you PTasker! Just wanted to update that she is doing well and retained all her eggs from before the move and some are now larvae :)
