Kauai or "Garden Isle" is the oldest islands in the Hawaii chain of islands. It is the 21st biggest island in US and the 4th largest in Hawaii. It is home to the Waimea Canyon State Park. Moving here can be an adventure especially when you come from California.

The rates for shipping a car to Kauaifrom California are based on several different factors such as the type of vehicle, pickup and destination location, timeframe as well as the type of shipping itself. The prices are usually subjected to alterations based on the size of the car – whether it’s a 4-wheel drive, a roof rack and so forth. There is an additional charge if the vehicle is inoperable. Most companies offer reliable and affordable transportation service (door to door and terminal to terminal) which is going to fit your budget.

  • You can get quotes from auto transport services in advance in order to prepare for the pricey shipping from the island to the mainland and it’s pricier the other way around. This is why you might want to plan ahead and get as many quotes as you can in order to compare and find a good company that provides you a quote suitable for your range.
  • You may need auto shipping services more than once. If you want to be completely independent throughout your traveling, you may need to ship a car more than once.

As long as the vehicle is loaded on the ship, the transportation time is roughly about five days on the sea. The vehicles are offloaded which takes about 3-5 days. Once this is done, the shipping agent picks it up within 1-3 business days and if you’ve booked door-to-door, the auto transport service will need another 1-3 day to deliver it. If you are looking to get an estimate on the cost of shipping, an average quote would be around $1,700-$1780 from California to Honolulu and to Kauai.

The Most Standard Method Of Shipping A Car To Kauai

The method of shipping to Kauai

Most cars are shipped to Kauai by being placed in a watertight garage underneath the deck of the ship. Often, containers are not used to load the automobiles. Naturally, this is up to the operation, and you can learn this technique.

You must prearrange and prepay for the use of a fully enclosed container in order to have your vehicle transported. The distance between the car's location and the port determines whether a 20- or 40-foot container is more cost-effective.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

...my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

Luis Rodriguez
You have my full support and recommendation!

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
