You could use a Robo-FTP script to automate the file transfer.  It could either run as a service and poll a folder watching for the arrival of a new backup file or you could have it check and upload the newest available backup file on a set schedule.  You can set it up to automatically retry if the transfer fails and to even send an email or SMS text warning to administrators upon repeated failures. Sure you could "roll your own" service to do this sort of thing but it would probably take longer and there wouldn't be anyone to support it after you move on.
