From the mainland to Hawaii: saying aloha to paradise

An island move isn’t like other moves, especially when you’re moving to Hawaii from the mainland. Things you need to consider go far beyond just when to move and where to move on Hawaii. For example:

  • What’s the best way to ship a car to Hawaii ? (And do you even need to ship your car?)
  • What’s the best way to move pets to Hawaii? (And what kind of pets can you even bring? For example, snakes are illegal in Hawaii and won’t be able to make the move at all.)
  • What’s the best way to ship furniture and other belongings to Hawaii?
  • What kind of homeowner’s or renter’s insurance should you buy in Hawaii?

Contrary to popular perception, moving from the mainland to Hawaii is not — rather, should not be — an adventure. It’s a complicated logistical undertaking that requires weeks (usually months) of planning by you/your family/your business, and experienced professionals on all sides of the equation.

As part of The DeWitt Companies, Royal Hawaiian Movers can help you from start to finish: from the earliest strategic planning to the last box unpacked. We can even set up your furniture exactly how you like.

We have offices, teams, and trucks on all four major islands, and can help with everything from loading and unloading, to freight forwarding, to furniture breakdown and reassembly, to storage, and even guidance on logistics, legalities, and local culture and customs, all of which can vary based on the island you’re moving to!

From Hawaii to the mainland: saying aloha to paradise

As most people know, a casual aloha can mean either hello or goodbye (it’s in how you inflect). So if you’re saying aloha and leaving Hawaii for the mainland, we’re sorry to see you go! But we hope to make your transition to the mainland as worry-free as possible.

No matter which of the islands you’re moving from or where on the mainland may be your final destination, you can be confident that Royal Hawaiian Movers and DeWitt will be with you every step of the way.

What our
Customers are saying

The moving company that serves ALL of Hawaii

Some local moving companies are just that: local. They can only take you so far, and once your belongings are on the mainland, you may have to find help from another vendor. I.e., sometimes moving to the mainland can feel like two moves, but Royal Hawaiian and DeWitt make it seamless.

And if it’s your first time moving off the islands to the mainland, here are some things to consider:

  • Moving furniture from Hawaii to the mainland can be expensive! Sometimes, it makes sense to only bring what’s irreplaceable and leave the rest behind. You’ll find that costs for new furniture — and everything else — are lower on the mainland.
  • Moving a business from Hawaii to the mainland requires an end-to-end partner. The last thing any business needs is for business-critical equipment and systems to arrive piecemeal. Don’t risk delays that can be caused by relying in multiple vendors for your business move.
  • Don’t take everything unless you need to. In our 30+ years of Hawaiian moving experience, we have had more than a few repeat customers, people who moved to the mainland only to return to Hawaii as soon as possible. We offer storage on Hawaii for household goods and business equipment, so if you feel the need to “hedge your bet” on moving to the mainland by leaving some things behind, we can help.
