Is It Worth Have Your Car Shipped To/From Hawaii?

While considering shipping a car to/from Hawaii, one of the most significant thoughts is whether your car is worth shipping it. Since shipping a car to/from Hawaii can be a considerable expense, it might be wiser to consider it twice before deciding.

To conclude, here are some questions that will help you to decide:
How Long You Plan To Stay In Hawaii?

Do you plan to move to Hawaii permanently, or do you plan to stay in Hawaii for a short while? If you don't plan to live in Hawaii for longer than half a year, it might not be the best choice to have your car shipped to Hawaii because the shipment expenses might exceed the car rental cost of 6 months. If you're staying in Hawaii for only a few months, you might want to look into renting or leasing a car. Some dealerships let you lease a car for six months. However, it would be best if you checked the costs of leasing, renting a car, and getting your vehicle shipped before making a decision. If you plan to stay in Hawaii for longer, 9-12 months, for example, it is always a better option for you to have your car shipped. But still, another determining factor becomes the value and condition of your car.

Is Your Car In Good Condition?

When shipping a car to/from Hawaii, the car's condition is an essential factor. If your car is brand new or in excellent condition, it is reasonably worth having your car shipped. However, if your car isn't in its best days or needs fixing and constantly requires additional investments to improve its condition, it might not be the best choice to have it shipped.

How much is your car worth?

If your car doesn't provide a sentimental value for you, the most important determinant for your decision is your car's financial value. Since shipping a car to/from Hawaii can be a significant expense, cars worth less than 20,000$ should be considered twice before choosing.

How Much Does It Cost To Have Your Car Shipped To/From Hawaii?

The cost of shipping a car from the mainland to or from Hawaii can differ significantly. The total cost depends on several factors and determinants. In general, most car transport services have a price range of between 700$ and 3000$. However, as we said above, the pricing greatly depends on several factors. We listed below the important ones among these factors;


Where will your car be picked up from?

One of the most important determinants is which state/city we will pick up your car from. If you ship your car to Hawaii, your location will affect the pricing. For example, shipping a car from Los Angeles to Honolulu will cost less than shipping a car from New York City to Honolulu.

Where will your car be shipped to?

Along with the pickup location, the destination is another determinant. While shipping a car from the mainland to the islands, since bigger islands, such as Honolulu, has more shipment traffic, it will be cheaper and easier to ship a car to Honolulu due to the fast-flowing freight business. However, shipping a car to a smaller island, Lahaina, is more expensive than Honolulu.

How big is your car?
The size of your car is another important determinant of the price. While shipping smaller vehicles such as coupe sports cars is cheaper, shipping a bigger vehicle, a Fullsize SUV like GMC Yukon Denali or Lincoln Navigator, will cost more because of the size and curb weight of the car.

  • Clean your car inside and outside. To inspect the vehicle thoroughly and properly, it needs to be as clean as possible.
  • Disable the alarm of the car. Because the engine will not be running during shipment, the noise, vibrations, and other outside factors may trigger the vehicle's alarm and endanger both the driver and the vehicle.
  • Don't fill your tank more than %25. During the shipment, a full tank brings about severe risks. Please be sure that your tank is not full to comply with DOT rules. Any extra fuel in the tank is a risk for both the driver's and your vehicle's safety.
  • Remove custom accessories and precious items. During the shipment process, any item that is not stock apart from the vehicle itself is not insured by the insurance policy. In case of any damage occurs to those items, the insurance company won't carry any responsibility. Even though we never had any theft cases, we still don't recommend that our customers leave any precious items in their vehicles.
  • Lock the car. Once the vehicle is loaded onto the trailer (or the vessel), there will be no reason for it to be unlocked. Our crew will also lock the vehicle once boarded or loaded to the trailer.
