While Hawaii is part of the United States of America, it isn’t attached by land to the Continental United States. This means that if you are posted to the base, the military will sponsor the shipping of your POV. Note that you still have work to do in processing the sponsorship. You should take your PCS to your transportation officer and figure out what steps you should take including forms you should fill out. While you do this, get quotes from various auto shipping companies that offer services to the military. By the way, our shipping quotes are free.
