3 Important Things to Know Before Moving to Maui, Ewa, Hawaii

The island of Maui is nothing short of paradise, but for those moving here, there are some important things to keep in mind before taking such a big step. The professional movers at M. Dyer & Sons, based in Pearl City, Hawaii, have been serving clients throughout the Islands for over 40 years. Below, they discuss three things to consider before making the move to Maui.

1. Plan Your Move Early

Moving to Maui from the mainland is a major undertaking and requires advanced forethought and careful planning. In addition to obvious preparation like finding a place to live and getting your items to the island, you should start preparing your budget sooner rather than later. Remember that the cost of living tends to be higher anywhere in Hawaii than most places on the mainland, and having substantial savings is always a wise idea.

2. Rent First, Buy Latermoving

Every neighborhood of every community on Maui has its own personality and vibe. You may want to rent before you buy just so you can sample a few different areas and see which suits you best. Renting first will also give you an opportunity to save up more money and make an even bigger down payment on your Maui dream home.

3. Be Aware of Maui's Pet Regulations

Maui has very strict rules about bringing household pets onto the island, and your pet may have to be quarantined for a period of time. The island has specific vaccination requirements that must be met, but you need to start them months in advance to ensure your beloved pet can remain with you. Details about bringing your pet to Maui can be found at the Maui Humane Society website.

When it comes to moving your goods to the island, trust M. Dyer & Sons. Call (808) 456-4200 or visit them online to get a quote for moving services.
