Transporting Cars To Hawaii: Tips & Guide

Transporting Cars To Hawaii

Transporting a car to Hawaii is a significant process, but with Amerigo Auto Transport, it’s a streamlined and efficient experience designed to save you time and money. Our expert team handles everything from door pickup on the mainland to delivery at the port in Hawaii, ensuring a seamless journey for your vehicle. Here’s a detailed look at what it takes.


The Process of Transporting Cars to Hawaii


Initial Consultation and Quote

The first step is getting a quote. At Amerigo Auto Transport, we offer free, no-obligation quotes to help you understand the costs involved. You’ll need to provide details such as the make and model of your vehicle, the pickup location, and your desired delivery port in Hawaii. Our team will then give you a comprehensive quote that includes all fees and charges, so there are no surprises.


Door-to-Door Service

One of the key benefits of using Amerigo Auto Transport is our door-to-door service. We pick up your vehicle from your specified location on the mainland and transport it to the port for shipping. This service saves you the hassle of driving your car to the port yourself and ensures that your vehicle is handled with care from start to finish.


Choosing the Right Shipping Vessel

Amerigo Auto Transport partners with two of the most reliable shipping companies, Pasha Hawaii and Matson, to transport your car across the Pacific.


Pasha Hawaii

Pasha Hawaii is known for its state-of-the-art roll-on/roll-off vessels, which are specifically designed for transporting vehicles. These ships ensure that your car is securely loaded and unloaded, minimizing the risk of damage during transit.



Matson has been a leader in Pacific shipping for over a century. Their vessels are equipped with advanced technology and experienced crews, providing safe and efficient transportation for your vehicle. Matson offers both roll-on/roll-off and container shipping options, allowing us to choose the best method for your specific needs.


Preparing Your Vehicle for Shipping

Before your car is shipped, there are a few preparation steps you need to take:


  • Clean Your Vehicle: Thoroughly clean the interior and exterior of your car. This helps in the inspection process at the port.
  • Remove Personal Items: Take out all personal belongings from your car. Shipping companies typically do not allow personal items inside the vehicle.
  • Check for Leaks: Ensure your car doesn’t have any fluid leaks. Vehicles with leaks may not be accepted for shipping.
  • Disable Alarms: Turn off any alarm systems to prevent them from going off during transit.
  • Fuel Level: Keep your gas tank about a quarter full. This is enough for loading and unloading but not too much to add unnecessary weight.

Shipping Your Vehicle

Once your car is prepared, it’s transported to the port and loaded onto the vessel. Our partners, Pasha Hawaii and Matson, use the highest standards to ensure your vehicle is securely transported. The transit time typically ranges from one to two weeks, depending on the departure and arrival ports.


Delivery in Hawaii

Upon arrival at the port in Hawaii, your car will go through a final inspection. If you’ve opted for door-to-door service, we arrange for your vehicle to be delivered to your specified location on the island, whether it’s your home, office, or another convenient spot.


Saving Time and Money

By choosing Amerigo Auto Transport, you save time and money in several ways:


  • Door-to-Door Service: Eliminates the need for you to drive to the port.
  • Expert Handling: Reduces the risk of damage and associated repair costs.
  • Comprehensive Quotes: Avoids unexpected charges with clear and upfront pricing.
  • Reliable Shipping Partners: Ensures timely and safe delivery with Pasha Hawaii and Matson.
