Whether you're moving to California from Hawaii for personal or professional reasons, the task probably feels completely overwhelming. In addition to all of the stress associated with an island move like packing your entire household, you now have a whole new set of concerns, not the least of which is figuring out long distance logistics. As experienced long distance movers, Blue Chip Moving & Storage has helped thousands relocate successfully and we've seen it all when it comes to moving from Hawaii to the mainland. Let our experience help you, and check out our top tips for relocating from Hawaii.
The most seamless moves always start with careful planning and preparation. Create detailed to-do lists containing everything you need to accomplish prior to, during, and immediately after the move. The more detailed you are, the easier it is to remain organized and sane when moving to the Mainland.
Pare Down Your Belongings
Because you're moving across an ocean and don't have the luxury of ground transportation, you'll have to pack and ship your items from Hawaii to Los Angeles. Before you start packing, go through your house and get rid of anything that's broken, you don't use, or you won't need and divide into piles to be donated, sold, or trashed. Once you've eliminated unnecessary items, packing will be a bit easier and you won't have to pay to ship things you won't use.
Find Reputable Movers
Moving to the mainland is a daunting task, but you don't have to go it alone. Blue Chip makes the process simpler and less stressful by providing comprehensive services that we tailor to your exact needs. From your in-home consultation to unpacking your belongings, our long-distance movers offer support every step of the way as you make this major transition.
Time the Move Properly
On average, depending on what your moving, it can take up to 2 weeks for items to ship from Hawaii to the mainland, so it's important that you time your move accordingly. Ideally, both your car and your household items will arrive at the same time you do. If that isn't possible, be sure to prepare a rental vehicle upon arriving in California, and pack any items that will be absolutely essential for your first few days.
