Shipping to France? Cheapest way?

I have a set of disco seats I'd like to get to France (front and rear). What way would you guys look into using for the cheapest option? I've got a lot of time/patience.
If I can't find a good/cheap way to ship them "as-is", then I'll take them apart and only ship (or carry! ) the parts that are needed, but I'd figure I'd give the "full set" shipping a chance before breaking stuff!

Surprisingly enough, it seems to be extremely hard to get seats in France. I've asked many many times before embarking in this... Anyway, now I have them here!

Shipment is currently, here in Herndon, VA (20170) and needs to go to France (55800). I can drive to Baltimore (Port of), or one of the local airport (IAD preferred or BWI). In France, I can get them picked up at the airport (CDG) or in Le Havre (Port).
There is a ton of ship that do Baltimore -> Le Havre, which I am guessing would be the most economical method (and dropping directly at port and picking up at port), but I'm not sure who to reach out to to get onto one of those ships. Moving companies maybe?
