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.Read More
Looking to fill a container and send it to Hilo? No problem. We can help with that. We can even help you pack all of your belongings inside your container, then unpack them at the other end. Just ask us about our full-service relocation packages, and we’ll put together a quote for you.
What if you don’t have enough for a container? We’ll help you with what’s called a consolidated shipment. With this option, you’ll pack your items into a wooden crate that the moving industry calls a lift van. These lift vans are loaded into containers, then put on a ship for the Big Island. Since you’re only paying for the space you need, consolidated shipments are one of the most affordable options for moving your items to Hilo. And because we send shipments to the Big Island twice a week, we can get you there faster.
Once your shipment arrives in Hilo, we’ll work with our colleagues at Royal Hawaiian Movers to get your items exactly where they need to go on the Big Island. Throughout the process, you’ll have one point of contact managing your move, one who’s here to answer any questions you have: your DeWitt Move Worldwide relocation expert.
Because every move is different, we’ll start your quote with an in-person survey with one of our experts. Then, once we understand exactly how much you want to ship, we’ll put together a plan tailored specifically to your needs.
“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.
Our experts can also help you with any questions you have about moving pets to Hilo. You may already know that Hawaii has strict quarantine laws in place to protect its native species. You can bring dogs and cats to Hilo, but you’ll need to make sure you follow the state’s regulations to avoid a lengthy quarantine. Our colleagues at Royal Hawaiian Movers have a comprehensive guide on bringing your pets to Hawaii that will answer most of your questions. We’re happy to answer any others you might have.
When it comes to getting all of your most precious possessions to Hilo, we can help. Trust our local experts to answer your questions—and create a custom plan that meets all of your moving goals.
