What You Need To Know About Moving Over Water, From M. Dyer & Sons, Ewa, Hawaii

Islanders know that moving over water, whether it’s to the mainland or to a different island, can be a complicated chore. You’ll want to make sure your valuables are packed safely in containers that can be transported over the ocean. M. Dyer & Sons are the best movers in Hawaii, well-versed in offering moving and storage from island to island. 

The Pearl City-based moving company wants to inform clients on the logistics of moving over water:

  • Packing In Lift Vans: Clients often ask M. Dyer & Sons whether they should pack their items in lift vans (wooden crates). If you need storage for 4,000 pounds or more (the average for a two-bedroom residence) either at your current location or your destination, packing your items in lift vans will avoid double handling by the moving company and ultimately reduce your costs. Loads under 3,500 pounds will be placed into wooden crates.
  • Packing Loose In An Ocean Container: If you don’t need storage at your destination, M. Dyer & Sons encourages clients to pack directly into an ocean container to lower costs. M. Dyer & Sons will offer moving help to minimize the risk of damage during the shipping process.
  • Customs Clearance: If you’re planning an international move, you’ll need to secure customs clearance at your destination country for your goods. M. Dyer & Sons offers assistance with customs clearance in most countries. They have more than 45 years of international moving experience.

M. Dyer & Sons pride themselves on offering the top moving services in Hawaii. Whether you need moving help for a simple relocation across town or major moving and storage assistance for an international move, call the moving company at (808) 456-4200 or visit the website
