Hawaii is a group of islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, regular road transportation is impossible for carriers, therefore other possibilities have been offered in the industry such as RO-RO platforms and closed containers to be shipped overseas to Hawaii’s main ports and back. Hawaii has 6 main ports of access: Kahului, Maui, Mawiliwili, Kauai, Hilo and Kawaihae, which are reached from various ports all around the world.
Transportation from the west coast of the United States to the Hawaiian Islands is usually set by a two times a month trip. The disadvantage of this schedule is that sometimes it might not work with your schedule; therefore planning before hand is very important to make sure car transportation is set the nearest dates that fit your schedule. Another thing you need to keep in mind is that most cars not necessarily come directly from a nearby port; some cars may start their shipments from the east coast or mid country. Transportation from these starting points to ports need to also be planned in advance to make sure cars are delivered on time to be mounted on ship and shipped overseas.
Besides synchronizing dates, shipping a car overseas has certain requirements that need to be taken care of and put into consideration to make sure transportation runs as smoothly as possible. Keep in mind that delivery times may take anywhere from 2 – 4 weeks, depending on where is the starting point of the transportation.
Shipping overseas entitles the car leaving United States territory to re-enter, therefore cars need to pass through customs and need to be cleared in order to re-enter the country’s territory again. Taking care of paperwork cam be tedious, therefore its important that this is done with enough time in advance. There are cases where transportation needs can occur with an expedite urgency, however customs paperwork cannot be avoided , this may cause certain delays and inconveniences for given case, therefore it is very important to know these things before expecting unrealistic things.
Although land car transportation can ship pretty much anything that has wheels and rolls, overseas transportation does not allow inoperable vehicles. Cars must be completely functioning in order to be shipped. Cars are shipped on huge ships that may not only transport cars, but containers of other items, it is enough hassle for operators to handle the transportation, dealing with an inoperable car adds on to this hassle, therefore it has been overruled.
As mentioned before, there is paperwork that needs to be taken care of in order to ship overseas to the Hawaiian Border or back; however each car has different forms to fill out. This notice is specifically for cars that are under lease. If the car you need to ship is under lease, owner of the car will need to present aside from all other forms and paperwork, a notarized authorization letter either from dealer or finance company allowing the transportation of the vehicle.
Also all cars must have title and registration before shipping.
