Found a decent company that transports smaller items of cargo for good prices.

The company is LV Shipping, they are based in felixstowe and take 44 days or so to ship things across here, if you find the name of the ship you can also track it online to find out where it is. Mine left the UK on the 26th May and its in singapore already (according to the tracking website)

It cost me 311 to ship a plastic pallet 4ft high on the 44 day service. Pretty good value I think.
