Selling car to Germany. How to ensure I get paid?

I have advertised a car for private sale in the UK and have been emailed by a potential buyer from Germany who wants to buy the car and re-register it in Germany. Could you please advise on how I should ask for payment to be sure that the money is safely in my account before I let the car go?

Moneygram or Western Union. Do not trust a bank draft because they can be revoked.
