Cheapest way would be borrow a set of (uk)trade plates and drive.
Cost - freight fare on ferry, diesel and time. Guess at £800
For the difference I'd go with the £1400 transport quote and no worries.
Borrowing trade plates is quite commonplace, however the legality and wisdom of doing so is questionable at best - this is what I meant by "no worries" by having it transported.
To dispel any doubt or misunderstanding I mentioned this as an option, I did not and would not recommend it, certainly not without being aware of exactly what the implications are.
My suggestion was and would remain having it transported.
