Shipping a car from Hawaii to the Mainland
Here at SGT Auto Transport we offer a port-to-door service for vehicles that are being shipped from Hawaii. This means you must drop your vehicle at the pre-arranged port from where it’ll be shipped to a port on the mainland. We then arrange for a carrier to bring your vehicle to your chosen location on the mainland.
All you need to worry about is making sure someone is available at the delivery location to inspect and receive your vehicle.
Shipping a car from the Mainland to Hawaii
If you are shipping cars to Hawaii from the mainland, the service we offer is door to port and then port-to-port. Choose Hawaii car transport and we pick your vehicle up from your location and deliver it to a port of your choosing. From there it’ll be shipped to a Hawaiian port of your choosing.
As soon as your vehicle has cleared inspection and customs in Hawaii, it will be available for you to pick up. It is possible to appoint a designated person to pick it up on your behalf, but you need to provide details to the shipping advisor when making your booking. They will need to provide your booking confirmation number and the vessel booking number before your vehicle is released into their care.
Shipping cars from Hawaii is an easy thing to do, but there are certain rules and regulations you need to be aware of.
A copy of the title or ownership document of the vehicle must be presented. If the vehicle you’re shipping is still under a Lien, you may need a letter of permission from the bank or dealership that confirms you’re allowed to ship it.
Registration and insurance
Valid registration and insurance documentation must be provided.
When delivering your car at the port you must provide a valid picture ID or identification card. You also have to provide your booking reservation number. If you’re not able to be present, proof of a power of attorney from the owner that allows the vehicle to be shipped, has to be shown.
If you’re shipping a vehicle to Hawaii from the mainland all you need to provide is a valid ID in order to pick your car up from the port in Hawaii.

Open or enclosed auto transport to and from Hawaii
The usual method for transporting vehicles to and from Hawaii is via open car transport. Your vehicle will be exposed to the weather and other elements but this is still a safe and secure way to transport a car.
During shipping, however, all vehicles being transported are underneath the deck of a ship. They are, therefore, well protected.
If your vehicle is precious, because it’s a custom, sports, high end or a luxury vehicle, we can arrange enclosed auto transport.
Getting your vehicle ready for Hawaii auto transport
There are several things you have to do to get your vehicle ready for Hawaii vehicle shipping.
You must remove all personal items from your vehicle before using our Hawaii car transport service. The only items allowed in your vehicle, when shipping cars to Hawaii or shipping cars from Hawaii, are a spare tire, a jack, jumper cables, floor mats and infant car seats.
When shipping cars to Hawaii or vice versa, your vehicle must have ¼ tank of gas or less. This is a requirement for any vehicles being transported over the open ocean and is in place for safety reasons.
Clean the exterior and interior of your vehicle before being shipped. This allows you to scrutinize your vehicle when using our Hawaii car shipping service. You must document any dings, dents or scratches.
Condition of vehicle
Your vehicle must be in an operable condition with no leaking fluids. Brakes, including the emergency brake, should be operational. Windows must be intact, and you must be able to close your vehicle completely.
You must disconnect all alarms, or have the remote available at the port. Keys to your vehicle must also be made available when shipping a car from Hawaii to the mainland or back again.
