When it comes to shipping cars and motorcycles to and from Hawaii, the process involves transporting vehicles by sea between the mainland United States and the Hawaiian Islands. The price to and from each Island is different with a different timeframe. Here are some important points to know:
– At first your vehicle will be transported with a car carrier truck to the needed port to go on the ship. That is only for vehicles to Hawaii. From Hawaii, the customer needs to drop the car off at the port.
– Maritime Shipping: Most vehicles are transported using specialized vessels designed for carrying vehicles and cargo across the ocean.
– Ports of Departure and Arrival: Vehicles are typically loaded onto ships at ports on the West Coast of the mainland United States, such as San Diego, Long Beach, or Oakland. In Hawaii, the main ports of arrival are in Honolulu on the island of Oahu, but there are also services available for other islands like Maui and Hawaii (the Big Island).
– Shipping Options: There are two main options for shipping vehicles to and from Hawaii. The first is roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) service, where the vehicle is driven onto the ship and secured for transport. The second option is container shipping, where the vehicle is loaded into a shipping container and then placed on the ship. When transporting a vehicle to or from Hawaii, make sure you have the necessary documentation like ownership proof, registration, and insurance. Be aware of specific requirements and regulations, including inspections and environmental standards. The cost of shipping a vehicle to or from Hawaii can vary based on factors like size, weight, shipping method (RO/RO or container), route, and carrier.
Shipping a vehicle to or from Hawaii usually takes several weeks, depending on factors like schedule, distance, and weather. Plan ahead and book shipping services early to ensure a timely delivery. At ABC Auto Shipping, we will take care of everything for you from start to finish.

Arman and ABC Auto Shipping provided a great service. I had them transport my car from California to Florida on a tight... timeframe. Arman managed time tightly and picked the car up as promised within a couple of days. The carrier used also communicated well letting me know where the car was along the journey and when it would be delivered. Arman also followed up after the car was delivered to make sure everything went well. Overall, excellent service and I would highly recommend ABC Auto more

Arman was very quick and helpful in finding me a carrier to transport my car at a reasonable price from California to... Virginia on such short notice and with the current situation (Covid-19). He was able to find a carrier who would transport my car with personal belongings in the trunk up to 100lbs (personal items are not covered by the insurance so it’s recommended not to ship a car with personal items). Arman was readily available to answer all of my questions regarding prepping my car for pick up and even kept in contact to make sure the transportation company had called me to schedule a pick up time/date. The driver thoroughly checked my car for preexisting scratches/damage and I signed a release form on a Friday. I was quoted that my car would arrive in Virginia within 7-11 days and my car arrived in Virginia the following Thursday! Luckily my husband was able to pick up my car as I am still in California and flying to Virginia tomorrow morning. The driver was able to contact my husband and schedule a pick up time and location. My husband says the process was very easy and the car arrived safely will all of my belongings in tact and just the way I stored them (I took photos/video of my belongings). I highly recommend ABC Auto Shipping for their fast and professional service!read more

We live in California and ordered a Jeep from Tennessee for my daughter’s 16th birthday. I was very nervous, however... everything went great. We even had to delay the pick up due to the dealership. We were not charged extra. When the car was ready it was picked up within a day or two and delivered one day sooner than more

The car was picked up on location at the agreed upon time in Madison, WI. It was then safely delivered 3 ½ days later in California, arriving in excellent condition. The car was delivered faster than we even expected to our home and arrived in perfect condition! The driver was professional, reliable, and very courteous.

Excellent service!!!We had to ship our car from west coast to east coast and I needed our car to be picked up within 1... or 2 days.

Since I had never shipped a car before, I was so nervous about it. But Arman from ABC made the process easy. He helped me with everything! He promptly answered/addressed all my questions/concerns. He quickly found a transporter to transport our car. We stayed in touch throughout the process via text messages. The car arrived in the expected time frame. Everything went well according to the plan. Everything was transparent, well communicated, documented and made super easy.I will definitely use ABC Auto shipping if I have to ship my car again. Many thanks to Arman for all the help. I highly recommend ABC Auto Shipping, Inc. It was a great experience!!!read more

Needed to transport my BMW from NJ to CA. Had used Arman with ABC Auto shipping in the past so I called him again and... happy that I did. received the same quality service as the first time and was given a discount for using their service again. My car was picked up as promised and delivered 1-2 days sooner that expected. Arman is very knowledgeable and very responsive via text message. Transporting a car across the country is nerve racking but Arman made it hassle free. I Could not had asked for a better service. They might be a bit more expensive than some other auto transporter but definitely worth the peace of mind. Thank you!read more

I had never shipped a car before, but Arman with ABC Auto Shipping in Laguna Hills, CA. made the process very easy. We... stayed in touch via text messages, he was prompt in responding and answered all of my questions. When I was ready to proceed, he was able to quickly find a transporter going to northern California. When I dropped the car off, Arman did a detailed inspection of the outside so we were both clear as to the condition of the car at that time. I also appreciated the video he sent showing the car being loaded on the hauler. The car arrived in the expected time frame. Everything was very transparent and documented. It was really easy working with more
