And because we ship exclusively with Matson, we are able to secure exclusive, lower rates than the general public. So take a minute to learn about shipping a car from Hawaii to California with American Auto Transport.
American Auto Transport also will pick-up your vehicle and transport it to and from the selected port(s), eliminating the need for you to have to struggle with such logistics. Prior to pick-up, you will need to ensure that the car or truck:
Absolutely no personal items are allowed to remain within the vehicle; the only items that can remain are the Owner’s Manual, a tire jack, and the spare tire. Subwoofers are allowed if they are bolted to the vehicle and the same applies to a roof rack. Car seats for infants and children may remain in the car or truck during transport, but they must be properly secured within the vehicle. You must also remove fire extinguishers and propane tanks.
