There are several considerations you want to be aware of when shipping to these states. Some of these include:

  • Does the vehicle drive?
  • What type of ground shipping will be involved to get the car to the port?
  • Do you want use Roll-on/Roll-off or protected container shipping?
  • We ship from Los Angeles, CA and Seattle, WA. The closer the vehicle is to these ports the less the ground shipping will be.
  • Do you want door-to-door shipping?
  • What is the shipping timeframe needed?

Each of these considerations impacts the shipping process and cost. All of these should be consider whether shipping a car to Hawaii or Alaska

Vehicle Preparation

The following preparations must be taken when shipping:

  • No personal belongings inside the vehicle (The only items allowed are the documents kept in the glove box and one baby seat.)
  • The fuel or gas tank must be 1/4 full.
  • The emergency brake must be in proper working order.


All vehicles are insured during ground transportation to the port. EasyHaul uses qualified drivers approved and licensed by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
We offer Marine Insurance at you request. Please insure your cargo. In case of damages or theft please note that under maritime law the carrier is only responsible for up to $500 USD per bill.

Container Shipping to Hawaii or Alaska

Container shipping is the most common method to ship cars to Hawaii or Alaska. This not only provides protection from the elements, but can accommodate vehicles that can’t be rolled onto the ship. EasyHaul ships many vehicles bought at salvage auctions and frequently these vehicles can’t easily be rolled onto a ship; container shipping is perfect for these cars. We’re experts at shipping salvage vehicles.
EasyHaul uses 20-foot and 40-foot containers. If you have a single vehicle to ship, and want it shipped within its own container, we will use a 20-foot unit.

A 40-foot container can hold multiple vehicles and if you are shipping a full container load the container will be loaded when the last vehicle arrives at the warehouse. If you are shipping a single vehicle, it will be included into a container with other vehicles. This keeps costs down and your vehicle will be loaded as soon as all the vehicles arrive at the warehouse.

Roll-on & Roll-off (RORO) Shipping

Roll-on/Roll-off is just what it sounds like. When a vehicle starts and runs normally, it can be driven on and off the ship. RORO is a less expensive, although less common, method to ship vehicles overseas. For new cars, this is a common way for manufactures to ship. At EasyHaul we ship used vehicles and even salvage vehicles. In fact, shipping salvage vehicles is our specialty.
