Household Moving to Honolulu, Hawaii
As you likely know, Honolulu is the largest and most well-known city in the U.S. state of Hawaii. It’s also the county seat of the City and County of Honolulu and is the capital of the state. Honolulu is perhaps the most popular household moving location in Hawaii, a state known more for its tourism than its appeal as a place to live. As an island state, moving to or from Hawaii is a much more complicated process than simply moving from one contiguous state to another, and for this reason it is going to be more expensive and take a bit longer due to the nature of actually getting a household’s worth of stuff across a thousand miles of open ocean.
Logistically, household moving to Honolulu is done much the same way as anything else – it’s shipped on a huge cargo container, usually out of Los Angeles. Household movers run routes to Hawaii twice weekly, by all accounts, and what’s great is that a household moving company can pick your items up anywhere in the continental U.S. and ship them to the port for you. This is great – you don’t have to worry about anything once your household items are actually in-transit, as the moving companies will be able to take care of everything for you. However, it’s a long distance, and the longer it is the more expensive it’ll be for you.
The reason for this is because domestic household movers often don’t have the facilities to actually ship anything to Hawaii. Household items are much too heavy to transport via air, like they can do with postage, so instead it’ll all have to be trucked to the port by one company and then shipped overseas to Hawaii by a second company, and then from the port to your home in Honolulu by yet a third company. And, as you know, everyone has to get their cut of the total price in order to keep themselves in business. This means that there’s going to be a large bill, often due before pickup, that will need to be paid. We highly recommend discussing your shipment with a household moving agent to learn more about how household moving to Honolulu is priced and what you can expect when shipping.
