I would advise to install Mathematica on the new machine, without
touching the old machine.  It can always be useful, for comparison or
rescue, to have a working old version.

The migration assistant also works over a local network.  However, as
the old machine is messy, it may be worth starting from zero with the
new machine and taking notes of what you are doing.  You will gain a
lot of confidence on your machine.
