I can see how the phrasing of my first sentence, may have lead you to believe that's what I meant. But, my second sentence made it pretty clear that the buyer should be pre-paying.

So, the buyer should pay, and arrange the surveyor.

However, it is very common for the seller to insist on who will haul it out or at least limit the options. Who cares for it, has the right equipment and how far they are willing to allow it to travel all factor in. As a buyer, I never really cared who pulled it. It was the surveyor not the travel lift that mattered.
