When it comes to shipping automobiles, household goods and other property overseas to Hawaii, one of the safest things you can do is ship in a shipping container to ensure everything is secure during transport.
A-1 Auto Transport can make your move to Hawaii stress free as we work with the top container shipping agents to ensure your container is packed and loaded onto the ship correctly and delivered safely so your goods will be intact and in proper condition when they arrive in Hawaii. Container shipping services are one of the most important services you can use for shipping overseas.
Containers for shipping overseas are generally available in twenty or forty-foot standard measurements. Other sizes may be available upon request. Property can be sealed inside a container and transported via an ocean-going ship to Hawaii and other lands worldwide.
The use of container ships essentially revolutionized the way that motor vehicles, household goods and personal property ship to Hawaii as they can ship safe and secure from the elements, vandals and other external elements that can cause damage to property. Many shipping companies today work primarily with container shipping rather than with RORO (Roll-On Roll-Off) shipping methods.
When you are packing a container, it is wise to make sure you carefully plan loading details in advance to ensure the container is loaded correctly to maximize the space and to prevent property from shifting around during the trip. If you are making a permanent relocation to Hawaii, it’s a good idea to use a single container to ship your car as well as your personal property all in one shipment so you can maximize your space and get everything moved at one time. This cuts down on wasted space but instead of spending a fortune to ship things separately, you can save by shipping things together.
