Ship A Car To Hawaii
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you planning a move to Hawaii? If so, one of the more important things you will need to consider is if you are going to ship a car to Hawaii. Or, if you want to ship it at all. If you don't own a very expensive vehicle and there is no emotional attachment to it, you may consider selling your car on the main land and buying a car once you get there.

If you do decide to ship your car to hawaii, there are some things you will need to know and do. For starters, shipping a car across the Pacific from the west coast can take up to a month. Usually it will not take quite this long, but bad weather and other factors could result in the transport taking up to a month. So, make sure to schedule some time to have your vehicle shipped.

You will also want to hire a quality car shipping service to handle the process. There are certain companies that specialize in shipping cars to Hawaii and it would be wise to choose one of those. Not only will you want to hire a service that you can trust, but you will also want to choose a company that can offer you the best rate. Try and save as much money as you can so you can save it for other moving expenses. Rates for shipping usually start around $1000 per vehicle.

After you have decided on a shipping service you will need to prepare your car to be shipped. Remove all of your personal items from your car. The only items that are allowed are items that came with the vehicle when you purchased it like a spare tire and jack. In addition, you will need to leave less than a half tank of gas. The vehicle needs to be in good running condition and there needs to be a ground clearance of 6" or above.

If you are financing your car, you will need a notarized statement from the bank or financing institution that proves that they are aware of the car being shipped across the ocean. In addition, if you do not own the car, you will need a notarized statement from the owner of the vehicle.

As you can see, if you plan to ship a car to hawaii, there is a little more cost and preparation involved than if you were just planning to ship a car within the United States. Follow the instructions and choose a quality car shipping service and your vehicle will arrive safely and in a timely manner.
