Cost to Ship a Car and Your Household Goods to Hawaii

Shipping your car and household goods to Hawaii has never been easier than it is today. Hundreds of cars are shipping to Hawaii from the mainland every year and while many people are relocating from the islands to the mainland, there are more than 1000 who move to Hawaii each month. This means more than 1000 people must arrange to have their household goods and cars shipped over safely.

Living in Hawaii is not cheap at all, and if you’re planning a major move you will want to be able to save as much money as possible to relocate everything. Shipping to Hawaii from California or the Pacific Northwest will take a week to two weeks depending on the port of exit on the mainland and which island port in Hawaii you ship to.

We offer secure enclosed containers in sizes of 20’ to 40’ to ship cars as well as household goods and personal property safely. You can also choose to ship vehicles on Roll-On, Roll-Off (RORO) ships where they will be loaded by driving on board. When you ship RORO, your vehicle must be emptied of all personal goods prior to it being loaded.

Cost will vary depending on weight but on average you can expect to pay between $1500 and $2000 to ship from the mainland to the islands. If you need to ship form inland to the coast or you want to ship inland once the container reaches Hawaii, you will have more expenses to consider but your property will be delivered securely.

Here are some examples of what you could expect for shipping rates to Hawaii for your car and your household goods:

Port of Los Angeles$1500
Port of Seattle$1600
Port of Houston$1575
Port of Miami$2000
Port of New York$1900
Georgia Ports$1875
South Carolina Ports$1700
