Help Shipping adress for moving boxes/Lithium batteries to Las Palmas/Canaries

Hi all,


bought a boat that is berthed in the Las Palmas marina and moving aboard.
Unfortunately the Las Palmas Habour guys don't accept any shipping goods which sucks big time. Taking with me what is possible via plane but I would need a shipping adress in Gran Canaria or Tenerifa (can sail there and pick it up)

Need to ship some moving boxes (which contains also a lot stuff they don't accept on plane like the Lithium bats for my power tools, some electrics....) and my supplier of the Lithium batteries packs (Tesla modules) needs also an adress to ship to.


Who can help?
Is there a different marina in Gran Canaria or Tenerifa who accepts shipping goods to them?
Or anyone a private adress I could use and pick up locally. Will cover all costs.

Get it shipped to C/O the courier for collection. It will need clearance anyway which is done at the courier's office. Alternatively if there is a lot of stuff employ a local shipping agent.

Does anyone know a good agent? Cannot find anything beside one hilariously expensive agent...



It is actually ridicolous that there is no widely published and avaliable solution to ship a simple 19kg box and my solar panels

its not a remote habour....It is Las Palmas Muelle Deportivo/Gran Canaria the port the ARC is leaving every year and lots of boats prepare for atlantic crossing which means a lot of gear from around the world needs to be shipped to this habour frequently.
Cannot be the only boater who has this problem.
