The 9 ltr really useful box lined with newspaper is ideal.

yea a rub is the best thing dont forget to put some holes in for ventalation

maybe a hot water bottle underneath if cold but should be ok for a half an hour or so without one

hope you plan to keep them in seperate vis as the may fight

ask the person you're getting them off if you'll need to bring a box. 9 times out of 10 the breeder / shop will give them to you in a cricket tub with some paper towel in

I use a 12ltr RUB with some news paper in the bottom. I've put two 60mm drill bit holes in the lid and pushed 65mm vents through (im a perfectionist, it looks really neat)

As above ... two beardies in together? Are you aware how dangerous that can be?
