Hawaii Operation Description

Transporting in or out of Hawaii (HI) requires just a tad bit more of logistics compared to inland transporting.  Usually, there are 2 legs involved.

1)  FROM THE ORIGIN TO HI

1st Leg (INLAND):  We find a carrier to transport your car from the origin to any of the following places of your choice:  Long Beach, Oakland, or Seattle.
2nd Leg (Hawaii):  We find another carrier to transport your car from Long Beach, Oakland, or Seattle to Honolulu, Hilo, Kahului, Nawiliwili, and Kawaihae.

2)  FROM HI TO THE DESTINATION

1st Leg (Hawaii):  We find a carrier to transport your car from Honolulu, Hilo, Kahului, Nawiliwili, or Kawaihae to Long Beach, Oakland, or Seattle
2nd Leg (INLAND):  We find a carrier to transport your car from Long Beach, Oakland, or Seattle to your destination.
