Tips When Shipping Your Car to Hawaii
Moving to a new state can be a daunting task, especially if you are planning to move a lot of big items, including your car. To help you with your research, here are some things you can do to prepare to move to Hawaii. If you need assistance in moving your car or other items, be sure to contact us today!
Determine The Cost - The cost to ship a car depends on size, weight, and government restrictions so be sure to get all this information ready and request a full estimate from the shipping company.
Should It Stay or Go? - Depending on the age of your vehicle and cost to ship it to Hawaii, determine if it would be more cost effective to just buy a new or used vehicle when you reach Hawaii. Also research if your car's brand, model and part would be easily available and serviceable in Hawaii. Popular brands in Hawaii include Toyota, Honda and Chevy so these cars would have an easier time finding parts or mechanics to assist you.
Get Your Documentation Ready - Have your original title and original car registration ready when requested.
Empty Out Your Vehicle - Double check the contents of your car and make sure it is empty. The shipping company will also check this but to avoid unnecessary hassle and stress, it's best to do so ahead of time.
30 Days To Register Your Car - Upon arriving to the islands, you have 30 days to register and title your car. Bring your shipping paperwork, registration application, out-of-state title and registration, a Hawaii vehicle inspection certificate, and the payment to any of the Satellite City Hall offices.Here is a link to for more information.
