Moving to Hawaii on a budget

If you’ve just started thinking about moving to the Aloha State, the next thought that might cross your mind is how to move to Hawaii on a budget. It’s no secret that living in Hawaii can be expensive, so it’s important to make every penny count toward your move. I’ve come up with some great ways to save and help reduce your overall cost of moving to Hawaii – take a look below!

Compare your moving options. You’ll find that “you pack, we drive” moving services like U-Pack will typically be cheaper than traditional full-service movers. With U-Pack, all you do is the loading and unloading, and U-Pack takes care of the transportation for you. U-Pack is an affordable alternative to full-service if you’re trying to stick to a moving budget. Get a no-obligation free moving quote from U-Pack here and start comparing.

Pick low-traffic move dates. Moves that occur between Memorial Day and Labor Day fall into the peak moving season, when moving companies are at full-capacity. Choosing an off-peak moving date can mean lower moving rates, plus a less hectic moving schedule.

Pare down your possessions. Typically, the more items you have to move, the more your move will cost. By paring down by selling, donating, or throwing away belongings you no longer want or need, you can reduce the size of your shipment and lower your moving costs to Hawaii dramatically.

That’s just three ways to reduce the cost of moving to Hawaii. Let’s take a look at three more ways to save!

Choose a fast mover. You can end up spending a lot of money “making do” until your belongings arrive if you don’t choose a fast moving option. U-Pack averages transit times of 7-8 business days once your belongings are placed on the ship to sail to Hawaii. That’s a lot faster than traditional full-service movers that could take 15-60 days. The quicker you get your belongings, the earlier you can start exploring beautiful Hawaii. Call U-Pack at 800-413-4799 today to learn your estimated transit time.

Consider a terminal-to-terminal move. If you choose to move in U-Pack’s ReloCube container and are moving to Maui, Kauai, or Oahu, you can cut the cost to move to Hawaii by doing a terminal-to-terminal move. With this kind of move, you bring your belongings to the terminal closest to your origin to load, then unload at the terminal on any of the islands mentioned above. For those with a small amount of things to move, this is a great money-saving option. Get a quote for a terminal move here.
