If you are in the process of relocating to Hawaii from the mainland and have a motor vehicle that needs to relocate with you, it’s vital to hire a reputable transport company that has experience shipping to Hawaii and will really take care of your car during the journey.

Things to Consider When Shipping to Hawaii
Since shipping to Hawaii is not as simple as loading a truck and hauling your car down the interstate to a new city or state, you have some things you will need to consider when you are planning your car shipment to Hawaii. You will need to decide on which mode of transport you will use to move your vehicle. You can choose from RoRo or Containerized shipping to Hawaii.
RoRo- RoRo is a standard form of transport that you can find on both land and when shipping via the ocean. Your car will be driven onto a RoRo boat and secured for shipment. The car will need to be completely emptied of all personal content including loose CD’s, detachable face stereos, luggage and other material in the front of the car. It will be exposed to the elements during shipment as it will possibly be secured on the deck during shipment. RoRo is safe and is used daily for millions of motor vehicles and other personal property during shipment on the interstate and on the ocean.
Container- Many people use containers to chip their cars to Hawaii from the mainland. Not only is the car going to be secured inside the container where weather and other elements cannot touch it, but you can also pack household goods and personal property inside a shipping container when you are making a permanent or long-term relocation.
Your shipping agent will help you decide whether you want to use door to door, port to door to door to port services when you have your car transported to Hawaii. Here at A-1 Auto Transport, we know that life is busy, and it isn’t always easy to run down to the port to drop off or pick up a vehicle. This is especially true if you live hundreds of miles away from the port.
We offer easy solutions to all your Hawaii transport needs and can have your car picked up at your home in any U.S. state and delivered by truck to the exit port. From there, it will be loaded onto the boat and transported to the port of choice in Hawaii. When it arrives in Hawaii, you can either go to the port to pick it up and drive it home or we can help schedule delivery from the port to your door in Hawaii.
