Whether you are moving to or from the mainland or just to a different Hawaiin island, there are some decisions to make in terms of hiring movers. When it comes to water travel, you need to either organize your possessions into a liftvan crate or let them be packed loose into an ocean container on the ship. To help you figure out which decision is right for you, the moving services experts at M. Dyer & Sons in Pearl City are here to give you a couple of insightful tips:
- Liftvans: Consider the amount of items you have and if you plan on storing any of it either at your previous location or near your new home. If you have a large number of possessions and need storage, pack your belongings into liftvans so that they can be taken directly to a storage unit. This saves both time and money as you won't have to repack anything.
- Ocean Containers: For people moving everything directly to their new residence within a few days of delivery, it makes more sense to have your furniture and other belongings put into an ocean container. Not only will you save money by not using the extra packaging, but it will also save time since the containers won’t need to be de-consolidated from the rest of the cargo, which could take up to two extra weeks.
