How do you choose the best trucking service in Hawaii? Cost is a factor, but price doesn’t necessarily reflect value. A reliable trucking service that’s also flexible can help you avoid upcharges, long delays, and damaged goods. So how do you ensure that your provider will deliver a low-stress, safe and affordable experience?
Royal Hawaiian Movers recommends asking a few key questions before engaging a hauling and trucking service in Hawaii. Whether you’re planning a residential or commercial move, interisland or across the Pacific, doing your homework is a smart move.
How long has the company provided container packing, trucking and hauling services to and from Hawaii?
Look for a company with a proven track record in local pickup and delivery to and from the continental U.S., Guam and the islands of Hawaii. Thanks to the dedication and Aloha Spirit of our staff members (many have been with us for more than 25 years) since 1982, we’ve become one of the largest transportation trucking services in Hawaii.
Type of Service
What type of trucking services do you offer?
Royal Hawaiian Movers trucking service can be broken down into two main categories, freight and household goods. Our freight trucking services are typically services where we are picking up or delivering commercial goods from a place of business. Our household goods trucking services are typically services where we are picking up or delivering household goods from a customer’s residential address. We will talk a bit more about each type of service below.

Household Goods Trucking Services
What happens if you don’t have easy access to the container?
Sometimes the container can’t be placed close to the pickup or drop-off point. Limited street access, community association regulations or space constraints can require shuttling furniture and goods. Got trucks? Loading ramps and dollies? Parking permits? Friends with strong backs? Yikes.
Let Royal Hawaiian Movers handle your container loading and unloading, including hauling and trucking services.
Can you save money by loading my own container?
Not necessarily. The logistics of loading a container for secure hauling and trucking start with properly packing the boxes and items inside. Improper packing is one of the main causes of breaking and damage, especially in an overseas move. We’re happy to share the best packing tips with you, and to explain our full-service packing, furniture wrapping and unpacking services.
