Even though Hawaii is a U.S. state, everyone in Oahu knows that things work a little differently here.
When you’re doing an Oahu move, you want someone who understands the island in and out. After all, it’s not always as simple as just pulling up a full-sized truck or container to the curb and calling it a day. On Oahu, moving companies have to navigate:
- Low-hanging wires that can restrict access in certain areas
- Narrow streets, roads, and alleyways
- Limited parking options along busy streets or within narrow neighborhood streets
- Steep roads and driveways
- HOA/neighborhood restrictions regarding equipment and containers
- Traffic, especially construction zones and road closures
Additionally, it’s difficult to park a shipping container in many Oahu residential neighborhoods. If your container arrives on Oahu packed “loose”—in other words, your items aren’t loaded in liftvans, which are wooden crates that many companies use to pack household goods—your items will either need to get loaded into liftvans for transit or get shuttled to your home using a truck.
We’ve had an office on Oahu since 1982. In all that time, we’ve managed these issues—and plenty more—to deliver safe, easy, and affordable moves.
We’ve executed moves all over the island, including: Diamond Head, Kahala, Kaimuki, Kakaako, Makiki, Manoa, Nuuanu, Punchbowl, Waialae, and Waikiki
As the U.S. Census Bureau defines it, Urban Honolulu is a pretty large swath of land, encompassing a number of different neighborhoods and nearly 350,000 residents. If you’ve spent any time in the area, you know just how diverse it can truly be.
Take Waikiki, for example. We do deliveries there almost daily, so we know how challenging it can be to find a place to stop a full-sized truck to execute a move.
Some of the newer condos in Kakaako offer dedicated moving elevators. This can make moves easier, but these buildings may also have strict rules regarding hours of operation and procedures. For example, it’s not uncommon to get elevator access for half a day—and those timeslots book up fast.
Finally, narrow streets, steep driveways, and limited access in Honolulu’s residential neighborhoods, like Kaimuki and Manoa, may mean we need to get creative and leverage a smaller van as opposed to a full-size truck. Additionally, we may need to load your belongings into liftvans to protect them in transit.
Either way, our crews know all the neighborhoods of Honolulu well, and we’ll create the right solution for you.
