Cost to ship a car to Kauai
Kauai is one of the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands and is home to amazing lush botanical gardens, spectacular beachfront attractions and many amazing places to hike through the wilderness. The water of Kauai is clear, warm and inviting for all. With a local population of nearly 70,000 and host to thousands of tourists annually, Kauai still maintains a small, hometown feeling to it even with the bountiful things to do for fun in the area. The Nepali Coast which is a colorful area of the island complete with cliffs and incredible ocean views is one of the most popular attractions of Kauai and people often take kayak trips, extreme hikes and even helicopter tours just to see it up close.
If you plan to move around from one area to the next during your stay in Kauai, you may want to consider bringing a car along, so you can easily hop from one side of the island to the other. Yes, you can rent a car or even walk or catch a ride on public transportation but being able to drive your own car is always a nice way to get around.
If you’re going to ship a car, you might want to know what it might cost you or how you can get it to the island at all. While it can seem a little stressful to have to plan a car shipment overseas, with the right professional advice and assistance it can be handled easily.
First, you should know that on average for a standard sized vehicle shipping from the west coast of the mainland to Hawaii, the cost averages around $1000 USD. For larger cars or for longer distance relocations, the cost will vary.
How Cars Ship to Kauai
You can ship a car to Kauai with Roll-On Roll-Off shipping, also known as RoRo or with Container Shipping.
With RoRo shipping, cars are rolled onto a large ship, secured in place and transported across the ocean. This is often the least expensive, albeit safe, way to ship a car overseas. You should know that your car will be fully exposed to the elements during RoRo shipping, but no more so than when you drive down the road daily.
You can also ship a car inside a large shipping container and while containers can cost a little more depending on the shipping company, the car is ultimately safer secured inside a container. You can also pack household goods inside a container.
Many people opt to share a container with another customer and if you can do this, it can cut your shipping costs in half. Be sure to check with the shipping agent to see if it is possible to share a container for the Kauai auto shipment.
