Moving to Hawaii - The Moving Process

Moving to Hawaii - The Moving Process

Posted 06.03.2011 in Articles by Neil-Denny

With years of experience helping others make the move to the Hawaiian Islands, we've streamlined a moving process that makes relocation easy and efficient. Here's a step-by-step overview of our moving procedure to give you a heads-up on what to expect leading up to moving day.

It all starts with our free online quote request form. Take a minute or two to provide the information needed to create the basis of your price quote. One of our experienced agents will then respond to your request in a timely manner and will discuss with you in detail the specifics of your move to Hawaii, such as the size of the shipment and overseas rates, to arrive at a price quote more catered to your own personal situation.

The next step is the in-house evaluation. By inspecting your shipment in person, we can provide a more accurate price quote. This will also be a great time to address any questions or special arrangements you wish to make with our consultants. We will also be able to assess the size of the shipping containers we will be using. All packing materials and shipping containers are provided by our moving service and will be included in the price quote.

We will provide you with a full written inventory of the shipment. Once everything's packed and ready to go, we'll also give your house a once-over with you to make sure nothing gets left behind. This is also a good time to make sure you have all necessary important documents with you, including ID, passport, medical records, and other personal paper. After a final rundown of your shipment, our moving crew will have all the necessary paperwork ready for your approval.

We take care of the rest from Origin Port to Destination. Once your shipment is delivered to our Origin Port Agent by truck, every full container will be loaded directly onto a licensed ocean carrier. Partially full shipping containers are consolidated with other shipments of household goods to fill the containers. This part of our process makes shipping costs more affordable, and our highly organized system makes sure your belongings are safe and secure throughout the duration of shipment. We are a Federal Maritime Commission Licensed NVOCC and stay in close, constant communication with our port agents. Upon arrival of your belongings at their destination port in Hawaii, the ocean carrier releases the shipment to our Destination Port Agent.

Our moving crew will be at the Destination Port, ready to move your belongings into your new home. Our professional movers will gladly reassemble items when necessary, and will take care of the disposal of all packing materials. For belongings you may not have a space for just yet, our agents can provide you with information on safe and secure storage.

From the moment you request a free price quote, to the day you set foot in your new home across the Pacific, we'll make sure your relocation to Hawaii is one smooth operation.
