Our History

Royal Hawaiian Movers: A DeWitt Company


Richard L. DeWitt opened Royal Hawaiian Movers’ doors in 1982, and we have had the great pleasure to serve the State of Hawaii and its residents for over 30 years. In the 1980s we started out with a single office in Honolulu and exclusively provided moving services to Military service members coming to and from the Island of Oahu. Thirty plus years later, we are still providing moving services to our military members and they continue to represent a core aspect of our business.

In the late 1980s, we expanded our service offerings into trucking and freight by obtaining PUC authority on the Island of Oahu. Throughout the 1990s, our company continued to grow both our military moving services and our trucking and freight services.

Then in the early 2000s, we expanded our service offerings again. With close to 20 years of military moving experience, we decided to offer moving services to anyone looking to move on the Island of Oahu; thus the commercial/residential moving division of Royal Hawaiian Movers was born.

In the course of the 2000s we further expanded our moving and transportation service offerings into the entire neighbor island markets, opening facilities in Maui, Hilo, Kauai and Kailua-Kona. With a statewide presence and PUC authority on all the major Hawaiian Islands, we are uniquely situated to provide transportation services for the entire state.

In the late 2000s, we expanded our freight and trucking offerings further in partnership with our sister company Approved Freight Forwarders. Today Royal Hawaiian Movers is happy to service twice weekly freight consolidation from the US mainland to all of our terminals throughout the Hawaiian Islands.

As we head into our third decade of providing transportation and moving services in the state of Hawaii, we continue to provide a wide variety of transportation services to meet our customer’s ever changing needs. We have had the honor of serving the people of Hawaii and we would like to give a BIG MAHALO to everyone that uses our services today and have used our services throughout our history.

Royal Hawaiian Movers is part of the DeWitt Companies. Spanning over eight decades the DeWitt Companies has grown from a small one-truck mover into the international moving and shipping company people depend on today. As this fourth-generation moving and shipping company continues to expand, one thing remains the same; DeWitt Companies commitment to excellence, integrity and a dedication to meeting our customers needs.
