How can I transport 10" goldfish from one pond to another 30 mins away?

Someone offered their 20 goldfish that are 8-10" and I don't know how to move them to my large pond. Can anyway w/ experience doing such offer a suggestion? I do have a tank of portable O2 which I can use to help transport. I know I will probably need to make several trips.

Thanks in advance.

    Big cooler bin, with a lid that clamps (or you can tape down)

    1/2 fill with water. put some fish in, move them. They will be fine for 30 mins, even if you put in several. There is enough oxygen in the water to support them from a while, they wont need extra for a 30 min trip.

    Get some shallow storage bins with lids. Put a few of the fish in each bin and put the lid on. I assume you can make a few trips, so a couple of bins would work great. Having someone to "man the containers" while you drive is a good idea too.

    Large Plastic bins or buckets with an airstone in them
