Relocating Tips

  • Pack it up!
    Inventory all of your belongings before the movers show up & be sure to label what room the items going into (ex. Living room, kitchen, master bedroom, etc.) this will let the movers know what room to unload the boxes.
  • Moving Valuable Items?
    If you’re moving high-value items, consider purchasing insurance. Check to see if the moving company you use pays for lost or damaged items. In certain cases you can purchase additional insurance.
  • Shipping your vehicle?
    Be sure to check with your local shipping company and make sure to follow their guidelines. Once you arrive on island and pickup your vehicle you will need to take it for a Hawaii Safety Inspection. Most auto garages and some gas stations provide this service. You will need to take your current registration and insurance card with you to do the inspection.
  • Bringing your pets?
    Make sure to talk to your veterinarian before the move and take your pet’s health records with you. Hawaii has a strict quarantine process for all dogs and cats (regardless of age). However, there are certain exemptions to the quarantine process that may apply
