What You Should Know About Packing For an Inter-Island Move August 29, 2014

What You Should Know About Packing For an Inter-Island Move, Ewa, Hawaii

Moving between the Hawaiian Islands requires as much care and pre-planning as moving to or from the mainland U.S. Effective packing is especially important in such situations, which is why the professional movers at M. Dyer & Sons, Inc. in Pearl City have outlined the major packing preparations and considerations that are involved in an inter-island move.

First off, all items need to be packed appropriately for ocean transportation. Traveling between the islands can be rough during certain times of year, and weather conditions may be far from ideal, so there's a risk that your belongings could be damaged along the way. For this reason, many people choose to hire professional movers to handle their packing, and just save themselves the hassle and risk. But if you're looking to move on a budget, perhaps the best approach is to pack the non-breakable items yourself, while getting professional moving help for the fragile and high-value items.

If you do plan on doing your own packing, either for some or all of your belongings, here are a few of the most essential tips to keep in mind:

  • Fragile items should be properly wrapped, padded, and packed tightly to avoid damage.
  • Heavy items should be placed on the bottom with lighter items loaded on the top.
  • No hazardous items – such as bleach, propane, paint, insecticides, and many cleaning products – should be included in the shipment.

As one of Hawaii's premiere moving companies, M. Dyer & Sons, Inc. is well aware of how important it is to properly prepare for an inter-island move. After all, the last thing you want is for a poor packing decision to take away from the joy and excitement of moving into a new home.
