In response to 141146: Container Questions, posted by Melody H on Wednesday, 12 July 2017, at 8:37 p.m.

Kona Trans would be a good place to start with your questions.

Depending on what you plan to ship, it may be best to sell the items and purchase them here. My experience is, you are going to be out the money if you ship or buy the items on the island. Would you rather spend the money to ship used furniture or spend the money on new furnishings? If what you plan to ship are heirloom pieces then the decision is more difficult.

As we decided not ship furniture, we did not need anything near the capacity of a container. I actually built a wood crate, loaded it, and delivered it to the shipping terminal. My crate was delivered to Kona Trans where I unloaded it, disassembled it and hauled everything to the house. I used yrc.com to determine the cost and locate the nearest drop off shipping terminal.
