Shipping pets and vehicles
There’s a rule of thumb to keep in mind when moving to Kauai (or Oahu, or Maui, or anywhere in the islands): if you can leave it behind, leave it behind. Not only will you save money on shipping belongings to Kauai, but you’ll be doing what draws many people to Kauai in the first place: leaving the material life behind.
That said, you will need to get around, and Royal Hawaiian Movers offers flexible options for shipping a vehicle (or a motorcycle) to Kauai. If you live close to a western port in Los Angeles, Oakland or Seattle, you have the choice of driving to the port yourself and we’ll take your car from there. If that doesn’t work for you, we also offer pick-up and transport of your vehicle from just about anywhere else.
And if you’re moving to Kauai with pets (other than snakes, hamsters, and a few other critters that are not allowed in Hawaii), we can help with both the planning and the transporting. There is absolutely planning involved, too, as any animal coming into Hawaii must have the paperwork in order, and will be subject to quarantine upon arrival.

Day-to-day living in Kauai
Island living is unlike mainland living. For example, while most mainlanders get their groceries and similar products from supermarkets and superstores, in Kauai, most residents — the recently relocated and long-time residents alike — get such supplies from farmers markets and local vendors. (Yes, there’s a Costco and supermarkets on Kauai, but if it’s fresh fish you’re after, check out any of the fish markets surrounding the town of Lihue.)
And while every Hawaiian island has its own natural beauty, Kauai (the “Garden Island”) with its rainforests, the rugged cliffs of Napali, Mt. Waialeale (a.k.a., the wettest spot on earth), and the endlessly stunning Waimea Canyon (Grand Canyon of the Pacific) is in a class all of its own.
First-time visitors to Kauai think they’ve entered paradise: people who live in Kauai know it.
