    5-star rated Hawaii car shipping company

    Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

    Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

    High five's all around! Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

    Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

    Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

    Excellent Organization Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.

    Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

    Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

    I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated.

    How much does it cost to ship a car to Hawaii?

    To give a definite answer we need all details about your vehicle and desired dates, and type of transport preferred.

    Shipping a car directly from the port in Los Angeles could cost about $1745. For a current car shipping rate to Hawaii please request a quote online or call. Additionally, if your vehicle is larger and has any modifications, this will contribute to a higher rate. Call us now for custom quote.
    Auto transport prices depend on several factors.

    The exact pick-up and delivery locations
    The countries and ports with all their custom and import requirements
    The preferred shipping mode - container, RORO, airplane
    Vehicle’s make, model, and condition
    Current supply and demand situation

    Shipping a car to Hawaii usually involves two different companies and two separate prices. One from your state and city to a port on the west coast, and the other price from the port to your island in Hawaii. Only when you are shipping from a city on the west coast, with a port servicing Hawaii, your rate will be one and the service in general cheaper.

    Factors that affect the final cost of shipping

    The vehicle make and model set the base price. Larger and heavier cars take more space and weight. Any modifications done to the vehicle, may additionally contribute to a higher price. For example, when your vehicle is lifted or has any type of spoilers, this means more space and weight. Whether your vehicle is running or not, this will certainly affect the price.

    When shipping from any city other than the port cities on the west coast, you will have a choice between open and enclosed carrier. The choice of carrier affects the price. Furthermore, distance and location also matter for the cost. However, usually the decisive factor is supply and demand fluctuation.

    The number of trucks running your route affects the cost. This is an important factor our logistics coordinators track daily. Our team tracks truck availability fluctuations daily and quotes current prices that will ship any vehicle in a timely manner.

    How does shipping a car to Hawaii work?

    Hawaii auto transport has its specifics and here we will discuss them all. First, you will be shipping the vehicle from either port of Long Beach (that is Los Angeles), port of Oakland, Seattle or port of Sand Diego.

    Now, generally speaking there are two scenarios:

    1. If you are in or near Seattle, Oakland, Los Angeles or San Diego

    - you can drop off your vehicle at the port.

    2. If you are anywhere else in the country

    As, you can see, car shipping to Hawaii from California is easier. It just requires good coordination and communication. After you have shipped the car to a port in Hawaii you have to go and pick it up from the port at your island. Customers have to track their vehicle and be able to pick it up on time otherwise there will be port storage fees assessed. For specific details on how many complimentary days you can keep the vehicle at the port, you have to call and ask. In case you want your car delivered at your door, we can make arrangements with local towing company to deliver your vehicle for an extra fee.

    Car Shipping Hawaii – Insurance and Liability Limits

    Your automobile will be fully insured while on the truck. On the vessel to Hawaii there is a limited liability in effect while in transit. This type of policy protects against damages from the time the cargo leaves the port until it reaches the final destination in Hawaii. This limited liability insurance will cover any damages sustained during transport, not to exceed the market value of your automobile. While on the car carrier, the vehicle is protected under an extension of the Marine Cargo Policy – the Inland Marin Cargo insurance policy. You don’t need to pay anything out of your pocket. While in transit on land, your vehicle is insured without any deductible on your side.

    How long does it take to ship a car to Hawaii?

    The time to transport a car to Hawaii very much depends on your exact pick-up and delivery locations. From the Midwest (Chicago for example) to any of the ports on the west coast, takes about 5 to 7 days to deliver the vehicle. This excludes the pick-up time frame which is usually from 1 to 5 business days. Then from the port a ship leaves to Hawaii every week, and it takes about ten days to deliver the vehicle by water to any of the islands in Hawaii.
    From the time the ship leaves the port you can count 10 days, but keep in mind that this is the open ocean and weather can delay transportation. The same applies to the ground transportation within continental US. The transit time to Oahu is 10 days and 17 days to Kauai and Maui. One or two days before your vehicle arrives at the port in Hawaii, a representative will contact you to let you know of the exact day and time you can come pick up your car.
