Moving to Hawaii

Who wouldn’t love to move to Hawaii? It is known that approximately 10,000 people move to this beautiful island, from both the U.S. mainland and from foreign countries. The fact that so many people want to live in Hawaii is not surprising, especially considering that one of the island’s nicknames is “Paradise of the Pacific”.

The thing about moving to Hawaii is that it isn’t as simple as moving to another state on the mainland. Hawaii is an island that is at least 2,500 miles away from the state of California, which is the state that is nearer to Hawaii, and you can’t always transport your belongings by airplane — which can be pretty expensive!

But don’t worry! In this guide, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about moving to Hawaii!

Pros and Cons

As much as Hawaii is commonly regarded as paradise on earth, it doesn’t necessarily mean that this paradise is actually heaven. Far from that: Hawaii has its many qualities, but it also has quite a few flaws. Here is a list of 7 pros and 7 cons of moving to Hawaii!

Pros

  1. Great views: Obviously, the very first pro about moving to Hawaii is that you’ll have great views wherever you go. You can probably even get an ocean-front office if you want!
  2. Perfect weather: If you’re not a fan of wintertime and want to enjoy the warm sun for as long as you can, Hawaii is the perfect place for you!
  3. Health care: Among all 50 states, Hawaii ranks #1 in terms of health care — it has the best health care quality in the country and the third-best access to health care in the country!
  4. Warm people: Hawaiian culture is really fun and interesting, and the Hawaiian people are incredibly nice and warm!
  5. Ultra-fast internet: According to sources, Hawaii is the best state when it comes to access to ultra-fast internet — this is perfect if you’re an avid internet user!
  6. Unexplored places: Hawaii is an island, but it also has smaller islands that are yet to be explored or inhabited. If you feel like going on an adventure, Hawaii has a lot to offer in that department.
  7. Crime rates: Although you may see a comment or two about how Hawaii is not exactly the safest place in the U.S., it still ranks #5 among all states in terms of crime and corrections!

Cons

  1. Distance from the mainland: California is the U.S. state that is closest to Hawaii’s main islands — and the distance between these two states is over 2,000 miles!
  2. Difficult logistics: Because of its distance to the mainland, and because it can only be reached by air or by sea, transporting things to Hawaii is more difficult than to other states.
  3. Expensive housing: Hawaii is one of the favorite destinations for tourists, both international and national. A lot of people want to move to Hawaii or to own a summer house on the island and, consequently, that makes house prices skyrocket.
  4. Local culture: As much as Hawaiian culture is warm, people moving to the island need to keep in mind that it is not unusual to come across natives who aren’t as welcoming to visitors as others.
  5. Bad traffic: If you’re moving to a smaller island in the region, you’ll find that the traffic on the highways is just as bad as in major cities.
  6. Mail delivery: Unfortunately, there are some areas of Hawaii where mail is not delivered straight to your home. In those cases, the homeowner may have to rent a PO box from the local Postal Service.
  7. Water distribution: Just like mail delivery, there are parts of Hawaii that don’t have formal water distribution, which leads residents to rely on other sources of water catchment.

Fun Facts

  • Hawaii is the only place in the United States that is still growing — the volcanic eruptions cause the island’s landmass to increase constantly!
  • View of the beach from a resort in Kilahuea..

Hawaii is easily one of the most popular islands in the world, receiving thousands upon thousands of visitors every year. The 50th state has an extensive history and there are several interesting facts that we can learn about Hawaii — and we picked 6 fun facts to help you before you move to Hawaii!

  1. Hawaii’s landmass growth: Due to the volcanic eruptions that occur on the island, Hawaii is the only state which has seen landmass growth!
  2. Hundreds of islands: When people think of Hawaii, they may envision one big island that is home to different regions. But the truth is that the Hawaiian islands are composed of more than 100 islands!
  3. Home to Barack Obama: Former President Barack Obama was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. He became the first President to be born in the 50th state!
  4. Official languages: Hawaii wasn’t originally a U.S. state, hence why it has two official languages: English and Hawaiian.
  5. No billboards: In order to preserve its natural beauty, the Hawaiian government banned billboards. This happened back in 1927!
  6. Jurassic Kong: The island of Kauai (in Hawaii) has served as a set location for box-office hits that include the classics Jurassic Park and King Kong!

Funny State Laws

Hawaii may be paradise on earth, but that doesn’t mean it is exempt from having some pretty funny and senseless laws just like every other state. In case you’re wondering what types of funny laws there are in Hawaii, here are 5 of them:

  1. No coins in my ears: In Hawaii, it is illegal to place a coin in someone’s ear — so, no magic tricks, all right?
  2. Aimless driving: Do you sometimes like to get in your car and drive aimlessly to clear your thoughts? Well, you’re not allowed to do that in Hawaii!
  3. No twins allowed: Apparently, there’s a law in Hawaii that forbids twins to work in the same company.
  4. Pet lovers: Pet owners in Hawaii are forbidden by law from having more than 15 cats and dogs at home!
  5. No disturbing the birds: If you’re visiting a park in Honolulu, keep in mind that it’s illegal to annoy the birds there!

Weather and Climate

  • Most of Hawaii has warm weather all year-round. Some mountain regions, however, can get pretty cold sometimes
  • View from the Makapu’u Point Lighthouse Trail in Hawaii.

Rather than being one major island, Hawaii is actually an archipelago composed of over 130 islands. Because of its extensiveness, this state is home to 10 of 14 climates that exist in the world, which is an incredible feat. Each island has its climate, though they’re mostly tropical. In the summer, the temperature in Hawaii can go up to 88 °F. As to the winter, Hawaii mostly doesn’t experience snow (only in a few regions) and the temperature is usually around 83 °F.

Nature

When it comes to nature, Hawaii needs no introduction. This state has several natural attractions that range from waterfalls to volcanoes and dazzling beaches. There is a reason why Hawaii is called paradise. In fact, here are 5 natural attractions that earned Hawaii the nickname of ‘Paradise of the Pacific’:

  • Glass Beach, Kauai
  • Garden of the Gods, Lanai
  • Mauna Loa, Hawaii Island
  • Sea Cliffs, Molokai
  • Pipiwai Trail, Maui

Natural Disasters

  • Hawaii is home to one of the most active volcanoes in the world, the great volcano Kilauea — lava flows are one of the biggest natural threats in the island
  • The volcano Kilauea spilling lava into the ocean.

Islands may be the prettiest pieces of land on the planet, but they’re also some of the most vulnerable when it comes to natural disasters. If the island’s infrastructure is not good enough, a single day of torrential rain may be enough to cause large damages. In Hawaii’s case, here are the main natural disasters that can happen in this state:

  • Hurricanes
  • Tsunamis
  • Earthquakes
  • Lava flows
  • Floodings

Moving Prices from Major Cities

Moving to Hawaii will be more expensive than moving to any other state, no matter where you’re moving from. If you’re from major cities on the East Coast or in the Midwest, be ready to pay quite a lot of money. Now, if you’re moving from the West Coast, especially from California, moving to Hawaii may be easier and less pricey! Here are the estimated moving prices to Hawaii from 6 major cities in the United States:

If you want more estimates, you can get free quotes using our moving costs calculator!

Housing / Real Estate

  • Due to the large influx of tourists and to the wealthy individuals interested in purchasing houses in Hawaii, the median house price in this state is considerably high
  • A residential community right next to the volcanic tuff cone “Diamond Head”, in Oahu.

Housing was one of the cons we mentioned about moving to Hawaii. Why is that, you ask? For one, Hawaii is one of the most popular destinations for tourists from all over the globe, especially wealthy ones. Rich visitors, including celebrities, want to buy a piece of land in Hawaii, and that makes the median home prices skyrocket. Secondly, the 50th state is an island, meaning that everything has to be shipped or flown, making transportation (and everything else) more expensive and complex. In 2020, the median home price in Hawaii was approximately $660,000. In Oahu, the median home price in 2020 rose to $880,000 for a single-family home! As to renting, the median rent price in Honolulu (the capital of Hawaii) was a little bit over $1700 per month.

  • Visit the nearest Driver Licensing Center in Hawaii, so that you can fill the required forms.

Here’s a lit of the main highways, routes, and airports in Hawaii:

In the end, is moving to Hawaii worth it?

  • Hawaii may be paradise on Earth — but living on this beautiful island comes with a rather expensive price
  • Aerial view of houses in Hawaii.

Hawaii is the very definition of paradise, most people are aware of that. Beautiful beaches, breathtaking sunsets, comfortable routine. These are all reasons why people consider moving to Hawaii — but they often ignore the not-so-positive aspects of relocating to the Aloha State. As mainstream as it is, Hawaii is still a remote location, an island in the Pacific. Living in Hawaii means that you won’t always find the items you may be looking for — and it also means that you’ll probably have to ship them from the mainland, which is much more expensive. Moving to Hawaii is worth it if you’re looking forward to living a peaceful life at a higher cost.

How to Move to Hawaii

Moving to Hawaii will take significantly more time than moving to states in the U.S. mainland — more time, more money, and more planning. If you want to move to Hawaii but have no idea where to get started, we’re here to help you: here are 10 simple steps on how to move to Hawaii!

  • Plan Ahead
    • The logistics of moving to an island are completely different than those moving to other U.S. states. That’s why it’s incredibly important that you plan ahead of moving to Hawaii. One tool that can assist you when planning your move is our downloadable moving checklist.
  • Downsize
    • Relocating to a new place can be quite expensive — even more so when you’re moving to Hawaii. You can’t transport your belongings by land, thus you should try to downsize as much as possible in order to save money.
  • Get Moving Quotes
    • Now, this is a very important step. When you’re moving to Hawaii, it’s crucial that you get as many moving quotes as possible so that you don’t end up hiring a mover that is more pricey than others.
  • Book Movers
    • Once you’re done with step #3, it’s time to contact a mover and hire them. Don’t forget to book a mover that transports items to Hawaii especifically!
  • Visit Your New Area
    • If you want to be 100% sure that moving to Hawaii is right for you, you may want to visit the island before making your final decision. We’re pretty sure it won’t be that troublesome to spend a couple of days at this beautiful island, right?
  • Start Packing
    • If after visiting the Aloha State you decide that you’ll move to Hawaii, it’s time to start packing your belongings. You may want to contact your mover beforehand and ask for instructions on how to proceed with packing.
  • Create Essentials Box
    • Moving to Hawaii means that you’ll spend at least 6 hours on a plane — or even days, if you travel by boat/ship. Because of that, you may want to create a box with all the essential items you’ll want to have access to as soon as you get to your new home in Hawaii.
  • Say Farewells
    • Once the logistics of your move to Hawaii are done, it’s time to start the emotional phase of relocating. Now that you’re going to the Aloha State permanently, you’ll be far from your relatives and friends, so you may want to take your time saying your farewells.
  • Get Some Rest
    • Moving is probably one of the most stressful things in life — there’s always something that doesn’t work according to plan, no matter how much planning you put into this. Thus, we recommend that you get some rest before the big day (and also on the way to Hawaii)!
  • Enjoy the Move
    • Yes, you’ll basically be leaving your life behind once you move to Hawaii. But you’ll be starting a new chapter of your journey in one of the most beautiful places on the planet — so enjoy the move as much as you can!

Moving services to help you relocate to Hawaii

Moving to Hawaii is going to be slightly more difficult than it would be to move to a state in the mainland. The logistics of transporting your belongings by air or by sea are significantly different than moving your items by land. If you’re moving permanently to Hawaii, here are 9 moving services that will help you in this process!

  • Furniture Transportation
    • Moving furniture to a new house is the most common service offered by moving companies. Moving to Hawaii means that your furniture will probably be shipped, which will take longer than transporting them by plane, but also less expensive.
  • Residential Movers
    • If you’re moving from your residence, residential movers are what you’re looking for. These movers will help you relocate to Hawaii and make this process as simple as possible.
  • Piano Transportation
    • You don’t need to own a piano to know that this instrument is large and heavy. Because of that, not all moving companies offer piano transportation services. You’ll probably want to ask your mover if they transport pianos to Hawaii.
  • Art and Antiques Movers
    • Art pieces and antiques are extremely fragile and require more attention during the moving process than other items. Art and antiques movers are experts in moving these items to your new location carefully!
  • Hot Tub Movers
    • You may not know this, but it’s possible to hire a moving company to relocate a hot tub. However, not all movers will transport a hot tub to Hawaii, so you should check if it isn’t cheaper to buy a new one when you get to the island!
  • Pool Table Movers
    • Pool tables, just like pianos and hot tubs, are heavier and larger than most items, thus they’re not always transported. If you’re moving to Hawaii, maybe it would save you more money to buy a new pool table rather than moving your old one to the Aloha State.
  • Office Movers: Residential moving is not the only service offered by moving companies. Movers also work with office (or commercial) moving!
  • Long Distance Movers: A long-distance mover is probably what you’ll be looking for if you’re moving to Hawaii — the nearest state to Hawaii is more than 2,500 miles away!
  • Last Minute Movers: If you have a sudden change of plans and need to move to Hawaii as soon as possible, you’ll need to find a moving company that works with last-minute moving. Keep in mind that this service may be more expensive!

2.1. WHAT BASIC INFORMATION DOES THE COMPANY COLLECT?
In operating the Site, we collect personal information from you in a couple different situations. The first is if you should contact us via the “contact” page or fill out any of the various “moving quote” forms. You are not required to provide your personally identifiable information when you visit the Site. However, in order to obtain information, including quotes from Relocation Service providers (“Vendors”), you must fill out and submit a quote request form containing personally identifiable information including without limitation your name, email address, addresses, phone number, home types, automobile information, move dates, and information pertaining to your relocation service needs (a “Quote Request). The second is if you leave a comment to a blog post during which you may be asked for a name and other information. You are not required to provide us with information via these two methods to use and enjoy the Site.

2.2. WHAT ADDITIONAL INFORMATION DOES COMPANY COLLECT?

  1. AUTOMATIC COLLECTION. Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). No personal information about you is revealed in this process. The Site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer.
  2. COOKIES. We use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allows us to store a small piece of data on your computer about your visit to our Site. Cookies help us learn which areas of our Site are useful and which areas need improvement through programs including, but not limited to, Google Analytics. We may also use cookies from third party social sites and programs including, but not limited to, Facebook, Google Plus and Twitter. You can choose to disable cookies through your browser or independent programs available online. However, if you choose to disable this function, your experience at our Site may be diminished as some features may not work as they were intended.
  3. SPONSORS AND ADVERTISERS. We may decide to accept sponsorship and advertisements on the Site. Should this occur, you should assume said sponsors and advertisers will be given access to the impressions and click data on their marketing pieces.

3. USE AND SHARING OF INFORMATION

3.1. WHAT DOES COMPANY DO WITH COLLECTED INFORMATION?

  1. PERSONAL INFORMATION.
    1. If you submit a Quote Request, we will share the information you have provided with Vendors who may be able to provide Relocation Services to you. Although Vendors have agreed to protect your personally identifiable information pursuant to privacy standards which are at least as restrictive as the terms of this Privacy Policy, we do not and cannot control the use of your information after it is transmitted to the Vendor and cannot guarantee that the Vendor will not disclose, sell or use your information in a manner that you do not anticipate. You therefore must contact the Vendor if you have any questions or concerns regarding their use of your information.
    2. Your Quote Request may include an opportunity to participate in our direct marketing program or additional offers available in the Quote Request. If you opt-in to our direct marketing program or additional offers, we will share your information with third-party marketers and service providers for the purposes of marketing and advertising their products and services to you. After we share your information with such third-party marketers, we do not and cannot control the third-party marketers’ subsequent use or disclosure of your information and cannot guarantee that they will not disclose, sell or use your information in a manner that you do not anticipate. You therefore must contact the third-party marketers if you have any questions or concerns regarding their use of your information.
    3. We may also use the information you provide in your Quote Request to (i) contact you about your satisfaction with the Site, whether you obtained Relocation Services from any Vendor through the Site, the identity of any such Vendor, and your satisfaction with the Relocation Services provided by such Vendor, and (ii) to send you information and promotional messages about our associated products and services, or the products or services that we offer on this Site or on our other websites.
  2. ANONYMOUS INFORMATION. We use anonymous information to analyze our Site traffic. In addition, we may use anonymous IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our site, or to display the content according to your preferences. Traffic and transaction information may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on an aggregate and anonymous basis.
  3. USE OF COOKIES. Promotions or advertisements displayed on our site may contain cookies. We do not have access to or control over information collected by outside advertisers on our site.
  4. DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION. We may disclose any information we have for you if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (1) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on us, (2) protect and defend our rights or property or the users of the Site, or (3) act under exigent circumstances to protect the safety of the public or users of the Site.
  5. SALE OF INFORMATION. In order to accommodate changes in our business, we may sell or buy portions of the Site or our company, including the information collected through this Site. If Company or substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third party, user information will be one of the assets transferred to the acquirer.

4. SECURITY

The Site has security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information that we obtain from you, but we make no assurances about our ability to prevent any such loss to you or to any third party arising out of any such loss, misuse, or alteration.
