3 Tips for Hawaiians Moving From One Island to Another, Ewa, Hawaii

Moving in Hawaii presents some unique challenges, especially if you’re going from one island to another. Just traveling across the state usually means your belongings will have to travel by boat, so Hawaiians usually have to take some extra care when packing to keep costs down and make sure everything gets there safely. Below are a few tips to make your inter-island move a little less stressful.

3 Tips for Inter-Island Moves

1. Downsize

movingWhen you’re shipping your possessions by boat, every pound counts, so anything you can get rid of now will save you a lot of money and stress later on. Consider throwing away, donating, or selling anything you don’t use regularly. If you already have a place picked out, downsize any furniture that won’t fit into your new home or apartment.

2. Hire Respected Professionals

If you’re just moving across town, you might be able to pack your own things and go; but inter-island moves are more complicated. You’ll always be better off with a professional moving company with extensive experience helping Hawaiians get their valuables from one island to another.

3. Pack Carefully

Sea travel is often rough, so you’ll want to make sure everything is packed carefully enough to survive the journey. Pack dishes and plates vertically, just like records, and use clothing to protect other fragile items. Better still, consider letting your moving company handle the packing for you, too. With their experience and high-end packing materials, they’ll be able to keep your valuables safe.
