Re: Questions on Moving to Hawaii

xp100,
I don't really have any insider tips on shipping. I've gotten rid of what little furniture I had, and have been sending small shipments. A 20' shipping container costs about 6k to ship (that's the cost port to port you need to figure out before and after that). For cars, go through a broker--they have a discount b/c of the quantity they ship; it won't save you much, but it's a bit cheaper.
The best website I found if you're not in the market for a container and only sending a few larger items and boxes is uship.com. You describe what your shipping and freight forwarders bid on job (some are door-to-door, some will ask you to deliver it to the port or their location).
