Across the Map: Hawaii Auto Transport Services
The state of Hawaii is an island located in the southern Pacific Ocean. It is the only state made up entirely of islands and is one of only two states that are not in the contiguous United States (the other being Alaska). Hawaii is known as a tourist destination and a great vacation spot, and as a result the state sees a lot of car transport traffic to and from it almost every day. The problem with shipping a vehicle to or from Hawaii is the fact that it’s in the middle of the ocean – there’s obviously no way that a standard car shipper can get a car to Hawaii. Therefore, your vehicle will need to be transported to the port by a standard transport carrier and then from there put onto a ship and transported overseas to the island of Hawaii.
This, naturally, costs a bit more than does standard transport from one city in the contiguous U.S. to another, as it involves a lot more mileage and an entirely separate shipping company to handle the overseas portion. This is why many auto transport companies that ship to Hawaii will charge you the entire payment up front, as they will need to pay the overland transporter as well as the overseas transporter separately. Having access to all the money for the shipment up front ensures that your vehicle will move smoothly from pickup to final delivery, and also frees you up while your vehicle is being shipped. Your shipper won’t need to bother you when your vehicle is in transit for any authorizations or anything – they can just get the shippers paid and make sure that your vehicle arrives when it is supposed to.
