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

I’m moving from Los Angeles to Honolulu next month. I’d like to bring my car with me, but I don’t know if it’s worth it. What does it normally cost to ship a car to Hawaii from California?

What an exciting move—have fun in Hawaii! In general, it should cost around $1,500 to ship a car from California to Hawaii. However, the final price will depend on these factors:
  • The size of your vehicle
  • Shipping speeds
  • Departure and arrival locations
  • Open or covered transport
  • Weather conditions
  • Delivery type (door-to-door, port-to-door)
While it may be worthwhile to ship over a nice car, you should consider selling an old car and using the money you saved on shipping to find a new one! It may be more economical than sending a cheap vehicle overseas.
