How do you prepare for shipping your car from Hawaii?
Once you have arranged your shipment through an auto transport company it is time to prepare your vehicle for shipping. It will make shipping easier for both you and your vehicle.
You'll first need to gather all necessary paperwork. You don't usually need any paperwork or documents if you are shipping a vehicle to Hawaii. If you are shipping your car from Hawaii to the mainland, however, certain forms will be required to release the vehicle to transport. This is the form you will need when you ship your car to Hawaii from Move Car.
- Your Move Car Vessel Booking Number & Order Confirmation
- A set of your vehicle's keys
- Use the remote control to turn on or off the vehicle's alarm.
- If your vehicle is financed, the vehicle title or lien holder authorization (Power of Attorney),
- Current registration
- A government-issued picture ID
- If a vehicle is being shipped from Hawaii to the mainland, and the owner is not there at drop-off, the drop-off person must provide proof of power of attorney.
- If you are shipping a car from Hawaii to the mainland and the lien holder is still paying, the drop-off person must show proof of power of attorney.
After you have all of the paperwork necessary for your Hawaii car transportation, it is time to prepare the vehicle. Your car should not have more than 1/4 tank of gasoline. This safety precaution is required for all ships that transport cars. Simply put, this is the minimum distance you will need to travel from Hawaii's port to your destination without exceeding 1/4.
To prepare your vehicle for inspection by U.S. Customs, it is recommended that you thoroughly clean the exterior and interior of your car. If you are able to do the work yourself, a professional cleaning service is your best option. It will make your life so much easier when you get your car back from the shipping company.
After you have dealt with the exterior of the car, you should give the interior a thorough clean. The law requires that personal items, including jumper cables, spare tires, and floor mats, be removed from your car. Your vehicle will be able to pass customs without any problems if you tidy up and remove personal items.
After your car has been cleaned inside and out, you should take it to an auto shop for an inspection. This will check the operation of the brakes and windows as well as the battery. Make sure your professional inspect the car for leaks and drafty areas. The vehicle could be rejected for Hawaii car transportation if it isn't possible to seal the container completely after inspection at the port.

Protecting your vehicle during Hawaii car transport
When transporting your car from Hawaii or to Hawaii, it is important that your vehicle arrives in good condition. Most shipping vessels store their cars under the main deck so that your vehicle is protected from the elements.
It doesn't hurt to give your car an extra coat of wax before shipping. This is especially important if you are shipping a collector's or vintage car. This extra layer of wax will protect your car's exterior as it moves through shipping.
It is also important to ensure that the auto transport company you deal with offers insurance with your shipment order. Some independent contractors don't provide insurance with shipment orders. This could cause problems for your auto transport experience and your wallet. It is better to choose a company that automatically provides insurance and handles claims in-house. You should choose a company you can trust, that has been in the auto shipping business for a while and has excellent customer reviews.
It doesn't matter if you are moving to Hawaii for a long vacation or a permanent move, shipping your car to Hawaii is easy.
If you follow the above guidelines when shipping your car from Hawaii or to Hawaii, it should be as simple as the island breeze.
