How long does it take to ship CARS to Hawaii?

The duration required for shipping vehicles to Hawaii from the USA ports of the West Coast is subject to a range of influencing factors. These encompass the particular point of departure on the mainland, the chosen destination port in Hawaii, prevalent weather conditions, the operational schedules of shipping vessels, and the potential for intermediate stops or transfers en route.

As a general guideline, when transporting a vehicle from a West Coast port such as Los Angeles, Long Beach, or Oakland to Hawaii, the typical timeframe to anticipate spans approximately 7 to 14 days. This timeframe encompasses the entire process, beginning with the loading of the vehicle onto the shipping vessel, followed by the ocean transit, and culminating in the unloading at the designated port in Hawaii.
