Try asking a local removal firm that travels to spain on a regular basis they sometimes accomodate other storage if they have room dont know how much they charge though but its worth a shot. Good luck

Seafrance Dover/Calais route is £35 one way. Pity you 'live' in Cornwall.

A quick check on ferrysmart.co.uk throws up £294 (fluid pricing :roll: ) for the Plymouth/Santander route with Brittany Ferries in April but that was for a return as it wouldn't let me do a single trip enquiry. It might be worth you spending some time having a look on their site as that seems a reasonable price.

Good Luck
