Trust us with your Hilo relocation

With over 4,000 square miles of land, there are plenty of choice locations to establish your home on the Big Island. If you head for Hilo and its surrounding locales, you’ll enjoy the lush, tropical environment that comes with living on the windward coast. While many consider Kona the tourism center of the island, Hilo, with its historic buildings, galleries and museums, is considered the cultural center. Hilo is also home to the island’s seat of government, as well as the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Most of all, its residents love the area for its small-town, local charm.

If you’re headed for the Hilo side of the Big Island, DeWitt Move Worldwide can help you relocate simply, easily and affordably. For Big Island moves, we partner with our DeWitt sister company, Royal Hawaiian Movers, to deliver a seamless move, start to finish, executed with local expertise. We’ll coordinate with our Hilo-based colleagues to get you anywhere you need to go: Hilo town, Puna, Ka’u, Hamakua or anywhere else on the Big Island. (And if you decide you’d rather relocate to Kona, we have an office in Kailua-Kona, too!)

Let us create a customized moving plan to help you make the Hilo side of the Big Island your new home. Get in touch with us for a complimentary quote.

Moving your household to Hilo? Let’s start with the basics

The Big Island offers awe-inspiring landscapes around every turn: dramatic waterfalls, miles of empty beaches, recently active volcanoes and lush tropical jungles. The island also boasts an incredible amount of climate diversity. You’ll find 11 of the world’s 13 climate zones on the Big Island. One minute, you could be sweating on Kamakahonu Beach, the next, you’re throwing on a winter jacket for a 4×4 trip to the top of Mauna Kea—or donning a rain jacket for a misty hike to Akaka Falls.

If this sounds like the lifestyle of your dreams, the first thing you’ll want to do is decide what’s coming with you to the Big Island and what’s staying behind. If you’re bringing more than just a couple suitcases’ worth of stuff, you’ll likely be looking at shipping your household goods via ocean freight.

Customer Testimonial

“Royal Hawaiian Movers were so great to work with!”

Royal Hawaiian Movers were so great to work with! I was moving from Honolulu, HI to Gilroy, CA and Royal Hawaiian Movers did such a good job working with my wife and I on moving all of our stuff. They picked up and professionally packed everything (which I didn’t know they would do) and they made moving such a breeze. They also helped us to keep our worries at a minimum because of their constant contact with us, letting us know when our things would be picked up/delivered. I would highly recommend using them.

What about shipping my car? And bringing my pets?

In addition to questions about things like fragile items, office equipment, fine art and musical instruments (we ship them all, by the way!), the two things we get the most inquiries about include: 1) vehicles and 2) pets. Let’s start by talking about your vehicle. Although some parts of Hilo are walkable, having a car will allow you to take advantage of all that the Big Island has to offer. If you own a vehicle that you love—one that’s still got some good years ahead—consider shipping it to the Big Island. If you have a four-wheel drive vehicle with good clearance, even better. You’ll have the perfect vehicle to explore the Big Island’s offroading opportunities.

No matter what kind of car, truck, SUV or van you have, we can help you get it to the Big Island. We’ll also help you wade through all of your shipping options—including putting your vehicle in a container or shipping it separately—to find the right one for you. We also offer door-to-door service for vehicles, or we can arrange for you to drop your car at a convenient port. Not sure which option to choose? That’s where our experts come in. We’ll talk you through it and help you select the right plan, based on your current location, your moving goals and your budget.
