Leaning toward the Big Island’s Leeward Side? We can get you there
“Kona” is a Hawaiian term that refers to the leeward side of any island, the one sheltered from Hawaii’s predominant tradewinds, which blow from east to west most of the year. Because of its position within the Big Island’s geography, the Kona side is typically sunnier and hotter, especially compared to the wetter, windier Hilo side.
As the contrast between Kona and Hilo weather demonstrates, the Big Island offers an incredible amount of climate diversity to explore. Did you know that the island plays host to 11 of the world’s 13 climate zones? They all await you on the Big Island.
Once you’ve decided where on the Big Island you decide to call home, you’ll have another big decision in front of you: What to bring and what to leave behind? Unless you plan on just checking luggage and buying everything on the Big Island, you’ll likely find yourself shipping your household items via ocean freight.Read More
Want to bring enough to fill a container? We can help you with that. We can even help you pack it from start to finish. Just tell us if you’re more of a do-it-yourself kind of person or a done-for-you one. If you’re a DIY kind of person, we’ll deliver a container to your home so you can pack it yourself. If you’d rather have everything done for you, we’ll send our professional crew out to your house with all the packing material they need to get your stuff safely situated in your container. Whatever your preferred style, we can put together an affordable plan to get your household possessions to your new home in Kona.
What if you don’t have enough for a container? We also offer what are called consolidated shipments, and we sail for the Big Island twice a week. We’ll pack your items in wooden crates called lift vans. Then we’ll put those in a container and ship it to the Big Island via ocean freight.
Every move is different, so we’ll start your project with a free estimate from one of our relocation experts to put together a customized plan for you.
“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 my pets?
If you’re considering shipping a car, truck, SUV or van with you to Kona, we can help you with that. A car will help you navigate the Big Island with ease, and a four-wheel drive vehicle can help you access all the off-roading options the island has to offer. If you have a reliable vehicle that’s got some good life left in it, you’ll probably want to ship it to Kona.
We can also talk you through the decisions that come along with shipping your car, such as: Should I ship it in my container or send it separately? Should I opt for door-to-door service or drive it to the port myself? That’s where our experts come in. They’ll talk through the logistics and work up a quote so you can make the right decision for your timeline—and your budget.Read More
As for bringing pets to Kona, many of our customers wouldn’t have it any other way. You can bring your dog or cat to Hawaii, as long as you follow the state’s strict quarantine procedures. However, because Hawaii has strict regulations around the import of animals and plants, some exotic pets, like snakes, may not be allowed to make the journey. Our colleagues at Royal Hawaiian Movers have a comprehensive guide on bringing your pets to Hawaii that will help answer your initial questions.
If you have more questions about what you can and can’t bring with you to the Big Island, we would be happy to help.
