Necessary Paperwork

When preparing the necessary paperwork for shipping your car from Hawaii to the mainland, ensure that you have all the required documentation to facilitate a smooth and efficient process. The importance of documentation cannot be overstated, and adhering to legal requirements for vehicle shipping is crucial. To streamline the process, make sure you have the following paperwork ready:

  • American Auto Shipping order confirmation and Vessel Booking Number.
  • Vehicle title and current registration for owned vehicles.
  • Lien authorization letter for leased or financed vehicles.

Having these documents in order will expedite the shipping process and ensure a hassle-free experience.

Auto Insurance & License Plates

Upon relocating to the mainland, securing auto insurance and obtaining license plates for your vehicle is a critical step in ensuring compliance with state regulations and maintaining the safety of your transportation. It’s essential to buy auto insurance from your mainland location and register your car in the county where you will live within 30 days.

Once you have purchased insurance, pass a vehicle safety inspection and obtain an inspection sheet. Then, go to the Motor Vehicle Office armed with the receipt of the shipment, former registration, insurance card, inspection sheet, and plates. At the office, you will be able to obtain new license plates or an out-of-state permit, completing the process of registering your vehicle and ensuring that you are compliant with state regulations.

Preparing the Vehicle for Shipping

To ensure a smooth and efficient shipping process, thoroughly clean the vehicle inside and out and ensure it is in good running condition before dropping it off at the port.

  • Checking vehicle condition
  • Removing personal items
  • Disabling the car’s alarm

Attention to detail is crucial when preparing your vehicle for shipping. Checking the vehicle’s condition helps ensure safe and problem-free transport. Removing personal items, except for essential items like infant seats, not only ensures their safety but also prevents any damage to the interior during transit. Additionally, disabling the car’s alarm can prevent any potential disruptions during the shipping process. By taking these steps, you can rest assured that your vehicle is well-prepared for its journey from Hawaii to the mainland.
