How to know if I Can Ship My Household Goods in My Car to Hawaii?

One way that many people believe they can save on shipping costs when moving from the mainland to Hawaii is by packing up their vehicle with belongings before sending it across the sea on a ship. That’s simply not the case. Nearly every shipping company available today will not allow a vehicle owner to pack the car with personal belongings before shipping.

Strict Shipping Rules

When shipping a car across the sea most companies have strict shipping rules in place to protect themselves and make sure the job goes smoothly. One of the rules is that no belongings can be within the vehicle at the time of shipping. This protects the company from being liable for any items that go missing from the vehicle during shipping. It also ensures that nothing loose bounces around and causes problems during shipping. Other than the required paperwork, and maybe a child safety seat, your vehicle should be free of all belongings when making the trip across the sea.

Double Check the Vehicle

The last thing you want is for your trip to be stalled because you left your car full of junk before bringing it to port. Take the time to look through the car to make sure it is free from all belongings before you drive to port to send the car to Hawaii. Go through the glove compartment, look under the seats and empty out the trunk of the vehicle as well. If you are thorough you should have no trouble when the time comes to ship your vehicle.

Empty the Fuel as Well

While getting your vehicle ready for shipping, you should also take the time to empty out the fuel tank as well. Most shipping companies require that the vehicle has less than ¼ tank of fuel at the time of shipping. This is something that many companies will check, and it’s important that you take care of the task before you send the car to go on the boat. Just do a quick check and either drain the excess fuel or go for a long drive to make sure you don’t have too much.

Taking the time to properly prepare your vehicle for shipping to Hawaii will ensure that it has a smooth trip and that there are no slowdowns from start to finish. Failing to empty it out properly will likely cost you in fees, or will leave you with delays that stall your trip or keep your vehicle from being shipped at all.
