3 Things to Know When Moving to Hawaii's Big Island, Ewa, Hawaii

Planning on moving to Hawaii’s Big Island? It’s easy to see why you would want to! With gorgeous vistas and beautiful cities, it’s an amazing place to live. That said, there are some things you should know before you put down roots there. At M. Dyer & Sons, Inc., offering moving services to clients throughout the state, they think it’s essential to keep these points in mind.

3 Things to Know Before Moving to Hawaii’s Big Island

1. Street Names

If you’re not accustomed to pronouncing words like Kaupakue’a Hmstd. Road, practice makes perfect! Nothing betrays a newbie like a misplaced accent or syllable, and you want to blend in as soon as possible. Try pronouncing a few when you’re with a friend who can correct you if needed.

2. Budgeting Needs

MovingTaxes, electricity, and other costs may or may not be more expensive on the Big Island than they are in your current home. People who have lived there for years are accustomed to the cost of living, but for an outsider, it can be a very different experience. Compare as many expenses as you can to your current situation if you’re thinking about making the move.

3. The Right People

The community spirit of the Big Island makes it a welcoming place, but it also means getting a job is a “who do you know?” situation. Be sure to have one lined up before scheduling a date with the moving company. If you can’t secure a job, at least visit online forums to start networking with people in your industry who can help you find employment.

Most importantly, hire a moving service run by people who know the area. At M. Dyers & Sons in Pearl City, they’ll be happy to answer your questions about moving to the Big Island. Contact them online to ask about their services, or call (808) 456-4200.
