Moving And Shipping

Moving to Hawaii can be done in different ways. Some people will sell all of their big items and move with just what they can have mailed and carry on a plane. Other people will move from coast to coast. It is important to note that price of the move as well as costs to repurchase all of your furniture are very important. Depending on which island you move to Hawaii, Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Lanai, Molokai, or another island, your shipping requirements will change. Different islands have different ports and sometimes your valuable may need to be shipped to multiple islands.

When you rent or buy property in Hawaii, some times you can actually rent or buy with the property fully furnished. It will cost a bit more but generally it is well worth it since the cost of buying new furniture is on the high side.

There are different companies that will ship your furniture to Hawaii based on its starting location. Every country and state will have local movers as well. Below is a list of possible shippers.
