Ship Your Car To Hawaii
When transporting your vehicle to Hawaii, there are a few things that you should be aware of that can affect the price and how long it will take to get your vehicle moved. If you didn’t know, Hawaii is an island in the South Pacific, and while it is part of the U.S., it is the only island state. There are no roads that go to Hawaii, which means that anything going to or from the island must be either transported overseas or via airplane. And since cars weigh a lot, transport by plane is usually prohibitive. That means the only option available for auto transport to Hawaii is via overseas shipping.
If you have searched for “shipping car to Hawaii” or “shipping car from Hawaii” and you are weighing your options, our team here at Direct Express Auto Transport is here to make the choice easy. Among the select few Hawaii car transport companies on the market today, we are most upfront in telling you how very difficult it is. Direct Express Auto Transport will ship your car in the mainland USA, but at the port, you will probably need to hire either Matson or Pasha for overseas transporting.
Ship Your Car To Hawaii
For many, moving to Hawaii is a no-brainer. Auto shipping to Hawaii should be the same way. When you book your order with us, your representative will work closely with two different shippers to get your vehicle picked up in the U.S. and moved to Hawaii. Unless you drive your vehicle to the port in Long Beach, California yourself, your Direct Express Auto Transport company will hire an overland carrier to pick it up for you. The pickup is just like any other overland shipment – your vehicle will be picked up by the driver, you and he will inspect the vehicle, and off he will go to the port with your vehicle secured tightly to the back to his truck.
Once the car’s out of your hands and into the hands of your shippers, you’re basically just waiting. It takes time to get your vehicle to the mainland port via overland transport, and then the port shippers will have to put your vehicle onto a roll-on/roll-off cargo ship that will then need to depart and head to the port in Hawaii.
All this takes time. Depending on where you are shipping from in the U.S., it could take a week or more to get your vehicle to the port in Long Beach. From there, it can take an additional week to get your vehicle secured on a ship (depending on the port shippers’ space per ship and how many vehicles they are shipping), and then up to two weeks to get your vehicle to the port in Hawaii. It takes time. So be prepared to be without your vehicle for at least two or three weeks, as that is the usual turnaround time for auto transport to Hawaii.
Chances are you will need to pay the entire overseas cost of the shipment up front when you book your order. Ask Matson or Pasha.
