Best Companies Who Move Cars to or from Hawaii
Once you make the decision to move to Hawaii, you will need to start considering how you will get everything you own moved with you. It’s easy to think about the many things you will be able to do when you get to Hawaii, but to do those things you will need your clothing and household goods as well as a reliable vehicle to get you to and from the places you plan to visit.
You can always sell your car and other material possessions and start over when you arrive on the island, but that can be very expensive to do. It’s often cheaper to bring everything along with you.
How to Get a Quote for Hawaii Auto Transport
Before you make a call to book transport to Hawaii, you need to check around to find out how much it is going to cost. The best way to do that is by checking online with several companies to see what the rates are now. Transport should be booked within 30 days of the date you need to have the car shipped to ensure you have an accurate quote and to make sure there is room for your car on the ship.
Quotes can be obtained by filling out an instant quote form online with most carriers. Try to get as many quotes as possible so you have something to work with. Once you have your quotes, take time to check the companies out to see how trustworthy they are. You can check reviews online, call and ask questions and check to make sure the company has valid insurance to cover your car during shipment.
Best Time to Relocate to Hawaii
The weather in Hawaii is warm year-round but many people agree that the best time to make a move to Hawaii is in the spring or fall when the temperature is slightly cooler. These seasons are also drier than winter or summer and they are less busy that summer or winter.
Save a Little Money
Hawaii is an expensive place to live, so you may want to save as much as possible when shipping your automobile. You can do this by:
- Shipping in the spring or fall when tourist season is slow, and weather is cooler.
- Ship with roll/on roll/off shipping.
- Ship with container shipping if you need to ship household property along with the car.
- Get as many quotes as possible to check service with those who offer competitive pricing.
