In addition to wrapping the soil:

If you’re able to get some brown packaging paper, wrap up the foliage into a cone from the pot (think dogs with cones around their heads, except your plant is the dog’s head and the paper is the cone).

Tie them up securely and put plastic bags around the pots to prevent soil from leaking. You'll want to water before and after leaving to minimize stress. Will they have to stay in the car?

Gentle wrapping is beneficial because it keeps the leaves and stems from breaking. Like the other poster said, wrap them from the bottom like you're dropping them into a cone with the flared end at the top.
