When we moved from Texas to NY we went to UHaul and rented a car dolly. You put the front wheels of your car on there and you can tow it, provided you have a vehicle that can tow the weight of your car. So, if you're moving in a truck you can check the owners manual to see what it will tow. If it can tow your cars weight, that would probably be the most inexpensive way to go.

If you are using the services of a moving company. The movers can handle it. They can put the car on a trailer and attach it to the rear of a moving van.
If you can afford it, you can arrange to have the car carried inside the moving van.
If you are renting a truck from U-Haul or Ryder, you can also rent a trailer for the car and attach the trailer to the rental truck.
It is possible to pull a car directly behind a truck. But it would take the help of a mechanic. He would have to disconnect steering and drive mechanisms from front wheels so the car can track easily, then reconnect the mechanicals at the destination.

Run the math and figure out how much it would cost to move it. With the price of fuel as it is, it may be rather uneconomical, especially if it is something that is not very reliable or worth keeping in the first place. If you pay a specialized auto hauler to move it, it could theoretically cost more than the vehicle is worth just to move it!
If you are using a rental moving truck (ie. U-Haul, Ryder), you could use a towing dolly but that adds more weight which burns even more fuel.

Yes, of course that is possible but probably expensive. I often see rental moving vans with auto carriers attached behind towing a car. Look into that and see which is the least expensive

For what it would cost you, you'd be better off to sell it and get something else at the other end.
