Content Item A

Your Hawaii Move

When shipping your household goods, or freight to and from Hawaii, it has to go into a container. When shipping a vehicle however, there are two options available. One is called LCL (Less-than-container-load), and the other it RoRo (Roll on, Roll off). The vehicle(s) are typically taken to a major port along the coastline. Some of these locations on the mainland are Long Beach, CA, Oakland, CA, and Seattle, WA.

LCL is sometimes cheaper, in that you can fit 2 - 4 vehicles into one 40' container. Where as RoRo requires the vehicle to be driven onto a special deck on the boat and have its own parking space and strapped down directly to the vessel. RoRo is typically a little more expensive.

Content Item B

Our neighbor island fleet.

We don't just service Honolulu. Fidelity also services all the other islands, even including the smaller and more obscure islands with major ports through our dedicated neighboring island fleet.

Some of these islands include: both Kahului, Mau, and Nawiliwili, Kauai, along with, Hilo and Kawaihae on the Island of Hawaii. Barge services are also available to the islands of Molokai and Lanai.

Send us your information so we can get you a quote and setup your booking.

  • Can I ship my items in my vehicle?
    No you cannot. Anyone telling you authorized will get your personal items abandoned on the mainland. The reason for this is due to Hawaii's fragile ecosystem. Due to this, all vehicles that arrive at the ports are pressure washed and all items left will be confiscated and held at their respective port origins. Do not place personal items in your vehicle because the USDA will not permit it.
  • How long is the transit time for shipping?
    Generally it takes 4 - 11 days depending on which island you are sending your vehicle to. For example, Los Angeles CA to Honolulu typically will take 4 days, whereas Hilo will take 6.
  • I currently have lien on my vehicle from my bank can I still transport it?
    Depending on the lien holder, some will not permit you to move the vehicle to another state without their explicit permission. You will need to get a letter for us to give to the port authority. If you do not own your title, make sure to let your lien holder know you plan on moving it.
  • My vehicle is modified, are there extra costs?
    If your vehicle has a lift kit, over-sized tires, wheel chair lifts etc. Please let your representative know what the added dimensions and/or weight added are so we can give you a proper quote. Pictures help as well.
  • Do you ship RVs, Boats, Machinery etc.?
    We sure do, to accurately quote you, please call us so we can better assist you.
  • Do you ship vehicles that do not run?
    Inoperable vehicles can be shipped to and from Hawaii, we do have the capability and tools to facilitate your transport. You will need to inform your rep whether the vehicle steers, rolls, and brakes so we can provide you with an accurate quote.
