Getting Your “Stuff” After Moving To Hawaii

After you’re here and starting to get settled in, a very exciting and happy day (especially if you have kids) is the day your container and vehicles arrive. Below is a video of our container arriving in front of our house. We actually had our car before the container arrived. We picked up our car at Kawaihae harbor (it was shipped through Horizon and came in through Matson.) No matter which island you live on, you’ll quickly find out which harbor to pick-up your vehicle. 

Container Arrives!

Our 45 foot container is arriving! We were so excited to get our stuff. It took about four weeks to arrive. We actually used a company called West Pointe shipping.  They did an awesome job. The Matson container arrived, and a couple days later the guys came who actually unloaded it. The moving company repacked everything professionally. We were amazed at how few things were damaged after such a long journey!
