Save time and money, and let us bring your vehicle right to your front door

In our current market, it makes more sense to ship your car than go through the whole hassle of finding a buyer, and then getting a new car for a reasonable price. But shipping your car to and from the islands without the help of a responsible and honest agency can become a true ordeal.

The importance of a reliable team that offers realistic prices and has a proven record of reliability and responsibility cannot be overlooked.

With more than 20 years of experience, we have shipped tens of thousands of vehicles, guaranteeing reliability, safety, integrity and affordability.

Shipping your vehicle from the islands to continental America or the other way around, is not an easy task at all. Budget Auto shipping offers the convenience of Port-to-door service, eliminating the hassle of having to pick your car up at your chosen terminal when on mainland.

The best part is that you will be able to monitor your car´s location while on the transporting vessel.

Here you have the list of basic requirements for shipping a vehicle from Hawaii to Mainland:

  • A Copy of the title or Ownership Document of the vehicle. If the owner is not the person dropping off the vehicle, an absentee letter is required.
  • You need a Lien Holder´s Authorization form if your vehicle is under a lien. You can get it from your bank, dealership, or the title holder.
  • We need a Proof of Valid Registration and Insurance. Your local DMV can provide you with one in case you don´t have it.
  • A photo ID.
  • We will issue a booking reservation number.

You also need to prepare your vehicle for shipping. The following requirements were established in order to protect your car, the ship and its crew, and our haulers:

  • Your car must be thoroughly cleaned. Inside and out.
  • The only items allowed on board are documents kept in the glove box, and one baby seat.
  • We can only transport cars with ¼ tank of gas or less.
  • If your windshield has any chips or cracks, they must be repaired before shipping.
  • Check your emergency brake is in proper working condition.
