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.
