Moving to Hawaii? Follow These 3 Moving Tips

Are you planning on moving to Hawaii soon, but you're not sure how to do it? Moving to Hawaii involves a bit more than moving elsewhere in the continental United States, since there is more planning for moving across the ocean. Here are some tips that will help make the move go smoothly.

Take Bags on the Plane 

One option that you have is to take your bags with you on the plane. This can sometimes be a practical solution when all that you are taking with you is clothes and other essential items. While the cost to take each bag with you on the plane can be expensive, you can make it work and avoid the need to use professional movers to do the job for you. 

Of course, you'll end up needing to purchase a lot of items once you arrive in Hawaii. That's why some people line up furnished rentals for when they arrive in Hawaii, and then work on putting their home together later.

Ship Your Car

You'll need a vehicle once you are in Hawaii, and many people decide to ship their car so that they have it. The nice thing about shipping your car is that you can put more items in it for the move. Keep in mind that your car will likely be shipped to one of the ports where you will be responsible for picking it up, so it should not be too packed with belongings. 

One thing to keep in mind is that your car should be in a good condition if you want to ship it. That's because it can be quite expensive to ship a car, and you want to get a lot of use out of the vehicle if you are going to spend the money to take it with you.

Use a Shipping Container Service

A very popular option to get your belongings to Hawaii is to use a shipping container service. This is ideal for people that want to take furniture and other large items with them, since you can essentially take anything with you that fits within the container. 

Your moving service will likely help you with packing the shipping container, since they want to evenly distribute the weight and strap furniture down so it doesn't slide within the container. This will help prevent items from being damaged in transit to Hawaii.
